Welcome to the last “Tuesdays on the Run” for 2015! I can’t believe the year is coming to an end already. Wasn’t it just yesterday that I got the bright idea to run two marathons in a weekend? (Oh wait, no, yesterday’s harebrained idea was to run a 24 or 48 hour race next December.) Anyways, today’s topic is “bling”! As in, show us your bling! I want to see what you got this year (after all, I still need to plan 2016…)
Somehow, I managed to get 15 medals in 2015. I didn’t even plan it LOL. I didn’t even intentionally plan to run 15 races – I thought I’d be much lower in 2015. Instead, I managed 3 marathons, 8 half marathons, 1 Ragnar, 1 17.75k, 1 10k, and 2 5ks.
As I sit here and try to choose my favorites, all I can thing of is “you’re all my favorites.” (If you are a mom, you know that book…)
This medal is my favorite because I ran 17 miles the day before and then ran a decent paced race, despite it being way colder than I anticipated.
This medal is my favorite because it guaranteed me entrance into the 40th running of the Marine Corps Marathon (and was a crazy hard race in and of itself.)
Mainly Marathons Independence Series – New York and New Jersey Marathons
These medals are my favorite because I’m 99.9% sure I will never run two marathons in the same weekend ever again.
This medal is my favorite because the whole is so much more than the parts.
Mainly Marathons Center of the Nation Series – 6 half marathons
These medals are my favorites because each and every state was a challenge, but the series as a whole was a triumph!
These medals are my favorites because it was an amazing weekend and I loved every single minute of the weekend and the races.
This medal is my favorite because not only was it a return to where this whole blog started, it also represented a race where I ran mentally strong and had a well run race, despite all the challenges that were thrown my way leading up to it.
See, they really are all my favorites! So tell me, what’s your favorite bling from 2015?
