The Race Wall

When I ran the Seattle half marathon last year it was such an accomplishment that I knew I had to display my medal somewhere.  I was so convinced of it that I bought a medal display hanger from a post-race party vendor.  That was how it all started…

Then there was the idea to add a bulletin board for race numbers (this idea may have been Steve’s or mine, it’s hard to remember).

A few months later there were jokes made about this crazy blingy ROCKSTAR sign we saw at Target.  Cue a friend who was with us at the time buying that sign and hanging it above our race medals for us to find when we returned home from a weekend away.

That is how The Race Wall was born!


All of these are from 2011.  There’s been no decision yet on if we take down one year’s stuff to make room for the next year or if we just keep piling on.  Probably the latter!

I love seeing this every day.  It’s a constant reminder of my accomplishments and a good source of motivation.

Do you display your racing accomplishments?
