Please note we started this blog in 2008. October of 2008 to be exact. It started out as two friends whining about being fat and lazy. And races. And being Lazy. And medals. And diets. And medals.
Are you noticing any repeats here?
The operative word has become medals. At least in my view.
So you can imagine my shock, excitement and dawning horror when I discovered this little gem.Photo taken from a really awesome site called 26.2 marathon medals
Meet the 2009 LITTLE ROCK Marathon Medal. You’ve all heard of Little Rock right? It’s famous for a couple things. Wallyworld. A sax playing former president. And HZ!
Looks kind of cool huh?
The 2009 Little Rock Marathon finisher’s medal is black zinc alloy and is 7 1/4 inches long and 6 1/4 inches wide. The medal features the 2009 circus theme and weighs in at a pound and a half. The medal features the race’s signature globe, race director’s kiss and the “race for every pace” motto.
Dude. I want that frickin’ medal.
And how is it we’ve been at this for almost a year and a half and I never knew the biggest racing bling in America is in HZ’s hometown???
If I live through LA 2010 I’m heading for Little Rock in 2011. HZ I hope your couch is really comfy. I won’t even mind Ruby farts.
