Every so often I get to thinking that I should display more of the medals that I have accrued over the years somewhere in my home. For how much time I spend putting in my miles every week, and for all of the weekend races I pace or run, my house is surprisingly void of any indication that I am a passionate distance runner. My current medal display is in my bedroom closet and looks like this.
I currently only display one of my medals because it came from “The Race”, the Super Bowl of running events for all of us weekend warriors out there that will never run in the Olympic Games, The Boston Marathon. This shadow box currently sits atop the armoire next to my bed (please forgive the sub par photo. I’m definitely not a photographer).
I don’t know if I want to display all of my medals, or just the ones that have special significance to me, like the medal from my first marathon or the medal from the race when I ran my Boston qualifying time. The only thing I know for certain is that I need some help finding a good way to display more of my medals in my home. I need all you runners and triathletes out there to help me make a decision. Really, I am looking for suggestions from anyone who accumulates medals while pursuing their athletic endeavors. How do you display your race medals?
