Obviously, running for bling is a topic near and dear to my heart. After all, my blog is called “MCM Mama runs for beer and bling.” And since I wrote about beer (cupcakes) yesterday, today is a good day to talk about bling with Patty and April and all of our awesome #TuesdaysontheRun participants.
[Tweet “Do you run for bling? Show us your favorite! #Tuesdaysontherun #runchat #bling”]
As you might imagine, having run 2 full marathons and 37! half marathons, I have a bit of bling. A few years ago, I had my dad build me a shelf for my medals. Apparently I was a little short-sighted.
Except that’s not all of them.
This is supposed to be where my necklaces hang.
But when you get this many in a year (and still have one more to go…), you run out of space quickly.
But here are some special ones that really stand out for me:
2014 medals I’m most proud of (Riverboat Series, 5 half marathons in 5 days)
Prettiest medal from 2014 (RNR USA)
Closely followed by this one (ZOOMA Annapolis)
Most useful (Ragnar)
Farthest I had to travel to get in 2014 (Achill Island, Ireland)
Ugliest (and coincidentally worst race) (Alexandria Running Festival)
