Case in point, one of my runner friends just ran a 5K, 10K, half and full marathon in a row just to get an extra medal for completing all of them in four days.
Because I've been injured so many times, I've not run very many races in the past three years. Other than my half marathon this past fall, I've run eight (and walked one) 5Ks or marathon relays.
Even so, it warms my heart to see my race bibs (and a handful of medals) behind my computer station at work.
After significant research (read: time on Pinterest), here are some ideas I'm considering instead.
This is probably my favorite because you can easily keep track of personal records or write your favorite quote. This blogger gives step-by-step directions. Unfortunately, I couldn't find her "about me" information. Oops.
For a ready-made option, this company offers frames to hold your precious.

Um, not that precious.
Lastly, here's another display worthy of holding your bibs and medals. Especially for those of us who are not remotely crafty. That's what Etsy is for, no?
Spendy? Maybe a little but certainly worth it if it's going to motivate you to get out for a run when you'd rather stay home and eat all the donuts. Plus, where else are you going to spend your money?
Oh, wait. Because remember, chicos and chicas, runners lie.
How do you display your medals and/or bibs? Are you crafty? What's your favorite medal?
