I still haven't quite decided what to do about my injury. I'm not in enough pain to not run, but as my boss put it, "Do you want to be able to run at 40? Or walk at 55?" Such a wise woman.
While I contemplate, I'm trying to focus my energies elsewhere. I've been cleaning up, packing for a business trip and baking more than my ass would like. I also wanted to get in on Maggie's current Runner Photo Challenge:
What do you do with your race medals? Show us. Even if you get rid of them, show us that.
I put a lot of thought into what to do with my medals. Medals are incredibly important to me. I worked hard for these tokens, and I want to be reminded of what I'm capable of and what I've accomplished. Last fall I set up an ego wall in my workout area, featuring old bibs, photos and motivational posters.
I didn't want to sink a ton of money into a project that commemorates me. This is a do-it-yourself project that turned out well. I picked up a set of hooks, frames, magnetic strips and a dry erase board from IKEA. I think I spent about $20 on the whole project, which is money well spent. It features all my medals:
|Big Hit Half Marathon|
|Fort2Base Race 11.5 miles|
|Fitness for America 10K, second in my AG|
|Learning Tower Tri, first in my AG|
