I know, I know I should have hung this on the wall before I took the picture. Sadly, I have to paint first and that isn’t getting done until March at the earliest and I already felt like enough of a blog slacker. This is my running medal collection from Feb 2009 (Surf City Half Marathon my first ever race) to January 8, 2011. I actually finished another race yesterday but I ran out of room so that will go on medal hanger #2.

The hanger is from Allied Medal Displays.

As for the hanger I know you’re going to ask so I will beat you to it.

289.2 race miles

19 – half marathons (13.1 miles)

1 – 10K (6.2 miles)

11 – 5Ks (3.1 miles)

Not bad for the fat chick who thought a half marathon was insane.

And yes I have shamelessly searched for the races with medals. I am always amazed that not all races have half marathon medals much less 5K medals so you have to look for the races that have them (it tends to be bigger races).

Anyway, if you have any other questions bring it on. :)

    I can’t wait to get my half marathon medal in March. Of course, I’m gonna have a very slow time and your ‘friend’ at the gym will be sure to tell me so. LOL

    […] Sure! Why not? Exercise makes you feel good, and it makes your body stronger and more able to do hard work. I give Scammy Cardiologist a pass on this one. As a guy with an officially-okay ticker, I’ve embarked on a plan of running longer distances more often. Plus I’ve been skimming this hilarious blog, Fat Chicks Running, written by ladies who run half-marathons. Since I’d like to run a half-marathon myself someday, I find this girl’s wall of medals very inspiring. […]
