Win it Wednesday: $50 Allied Medal Hangers Giveaway

Hard-earned Ironman bling
I race for bling. I'm super transparent about this. My medals are very important to me. Sure, they're just trinkets that cost pennies on the dollar, but they represent hours upon hours of work and sacrifice and research and conversations. I have my medals hanging up in the basement with race posters and photos to remind myself what I've accomplished. It's a nice boost when I'm feeling down or wondering why I'm awake at 5 a.m. again to workout.

So it's only natural that I take care in how they're displayed. I got my Allied Medal Hanger two years ago and have proceeded to fill it with memories and mementos. I love the way it looks, the message and the company. I was excited to see the revamped MedalHangers.com, which now includes a very nifty customizer tool. In honor of this new gadget, which allows users to choose from a plethora of display options to create the perfect medal holder, Allied Medal gave me a $50 giftcard to raffle off. 

I love this tool - you can mix fonts, add images and logos, move things around, change the height and width and add room to grow with up to three bars. This would be a great gift for any athlete, including runner, skaters, skiiers or anyone mildly competitive.  

I'm using Rafflecopter for this giveaway, which will randomly select one winner in a week. I'll announce the winner here in next week's Three Things Thursday post. Good luck!

I received a medal holder as a gift from my husband for all the bling overtaking our bookcase. Unfortunately, he didn't realize how many I had and how quickly I acquire them. I now need a new medal holder for my incoming bling!
