Home Tour: The New Pain Cave

I've been working on updating my house and getting things just the way I want it. The first thing I was focused on was getting my home gym back in order. I have a gym membership, but I like to ride my bike at home, and I needed to set up my desk to work from home ASAP. Because sweatpants > going to work. So here you have it:
 New life includes a home treadmill and redone medal/poster wall.
 This is where I work from home. Please note the dog bed. That's integral. Napoleon only uses it when I'm down there, naturally.
 My diplomas, awards and pictures with my mom at each graduation. I have an ego and I'm not sorry.

A closer look at my medals - my sister gave me the "Swim bike run" medal holder for finishing Ironman Wisconsin, so those are my triathlon medals. The other medal holder is from Allied Medals.

I still have to add a spot for my race bibs. I bought a set of cork placemats at IKEA to cut up into strips. I'm going to mount them to the wall with double-stick tape so I can tack up the race bibs. Next up are the shadow boxes. Jenny got me a frame for my Ironman 70.3 Racine finish, and I'm on the look out for a matching pair for my Ironman Wisconsin memorabilia. Because eventually I'll have to do something with my medal other than leave it on my nightside table.

Not since Wayne's basement have I seen such a "pretty pretty pain cave"!

I love that your Cabot Virtual Race medal is prominent! And I love your pain cave, complete with dog bed! Best wishes in your new home!

I love it! I am still jealous of your ability to work from home. One day....I want that ability.
