Since we moved into our townhouse in July we’ve been slowly working on projects around the house. We’ve known since we moved in that we wanted to showcase our race medals on one of the walls in our office. I’ve slowly been ordering pieces for our display, and we finally had time Saturday morning to hang everything up.
Right now the wall is made up of three pieces. The medal hanger on the left, which currently has all of our runDisney medals except for Preston’s first marathon medal, is from Gone for a Run. Back in the spring, I won a gift certificate that Heather from Through Heather’s Looking Glass gaveaway on her blog, and I’d been holding onto it ever since. In between Preston’s six Dopey Challenge medals and my medals from the Disney World 10k and Half Marathon are our Disney buttons from our races, which I hung from a piece of ribbon. The top two buttons are from when Preston ran the Disney World Marathon in 2013 (which was his first marathon). The next two buttons are in celebration of my first half marathon, and the bottom button is the “I’m Celebrating” button that Preston wore after the Dopey Challenge.
The medal hanger on the right is from Allied Medal Designs. Last month I came across a discount code, and since Preston and I had been eyeing the “Every Mile is Magic” one for awhile, I knew it was finally time for us to order it. Although they’re covered right now, we bought the display with three bars, so there’s plenty of room to add more medals from future races.
The photo in the middle is our favorite picture from this year’s Disney World Marathon Weekend. Preston is showing off his Dopey Challenge medal and I’m wearing my medal from my first half marathon. Back in August Groupon had a spectacular deal for Canvas on Demand. I’m so glad that we took advantage of the deal, as the picture looks fantastic blown up. I can’t wait to print and hang more pictures in the future.
My next memorabilia project will be a race scrapbook. Right now all of our bibs are in a binder, and I want to work on transferring them into a scrapbook with other race photos. I foresee this being a great project to work on throughout the winter when its too cold and/or snowy to leave the house.
QOTD: How do you display your race medals and other race memorabilia?
