I know I blogged yesterday but believe it or not I’m back today too. *waves smelling salts in front of blog reading buddies*

First I’d like to point out that I’ve changed the ticker on the right sidebar to my next big race. As promised, I’m invading HZ’s hometown (I know, I know, there goes the neighborhood).

Secondly, I’d like to show you my newest purchase:

It’s a medal hanger. Yes, I still have grand plans for my Christmas tree of running medal awesomeness but I still need something to hold my bling for the rest of the year.

(um… those aren’t my medals either I’m just showing you what it will look like full).

Several of these medals (including the Iron Girl medals on your left) are from triathlons. I don’t own a bike and wearing a wetsuit causes me to break out it hives (that’s not a fat joke I’m seriously allergic to neoprene) so I won’t be adding to my athletic challenges. I’m a one-sport wonder.

But seriously how cool is this hanger!

You’d think this would be perfect in light of my recent MCM experience right? Probably. But the first thing I thought of when I saw this hanger wasn’t the marathon. The first thing I thought of when I saw this hanger was a 5K.

When we started this blog in 2008 I’d never done a 5K. The 5K distance of 3.1 miles scared the hell out of me. Then I did the half marathon and the 13.1 distance still scared the hell out of me. For an entire year I thought “I’m insane what the hell is wrong with me” each of the 3 times I paid to do a half marathon. Now I’m working my butt off to finish the marathon.

As for me, that is my new personal motto.

“What the hell was I thinking?” didn’t look good on t-shirts anyway.

As for the hanger it’s from Allied Steel
