Welcome to another edition of Tuesday Topics. This week we’re talking about what do you do with your race medals. I am excited to learn what you all do with them because mine are in a box.
This week’s Tuesday Topic: What do you do with your race medals? You can write about this topic or feel free to post any running related blog post. Remember to link up with Kim and Zenaida! Visit at least two of the other linked posts – the more the merrier! Remember to come back for later linkers!
I’ve run 168 races and I’ve received a medal for almost every race. I am sure I have over 100 medals. There are a few races that in the beginning no medal was given (Shamrock Shuffle). Nowadays even a 5k gets you a medal!
Right now the majority of them are in a box. A few years ago (June 2013) I began making some holders.
Over the years I accumulated more medals but didn’t make more holders for them. That is why I put them in a box. I know I could have bought holders but told myself to wait till I had more room/wall to hang them. I am still waiting for that day. 🙂
Marcia recently posted a picture of her medals. I would love to do something similar. Of course I need room to do something similar.
I would probably organize them by group/theme. Below are the ones from the RnR races and the RunDisney races.
I would even organize them by state. I like this holder. Photo from Etsy.
I may even donate some to Medals4Mettle. There is no need to keep all of them, right?
For now I will leave them in a box. When I do move and have more space, I will decide what to do with them.
Do you keep your medals? Do you give them away?
