How do you display/show off your medals?? (Read 2906 times)

    Cool Crimbo present from the kids (put together by the missus) from 1st Marathon 3 weeks ago! Big grin

      Mine are buried nicely in a landfill somewhere.

        You are a ray of sunshine.

         

        Why not decline them if you are just going to do this?

          I just recently put mine up on the wall, just using little sticky hooks. I'm getting a bunch of my favorite running photos together to frame them and put on the same wall. Nothing fancy, but I'm very proud of them so it's fun to have them up. 

           

          The 3 on the right are marathons, 9 on the left are my half marathons. They're just on the wall of our bedroom, near my work/computer area. 

           

          (I'll post a new photo when I get the pics around the medals with my bibs and such.) Smile

          12 half marathons, 4 full marathons

          Goals- run more, lose 20lbs, sub 2 hour half and 4:10 full.

            Nice display.  You've got some unique ones there.  

             

            Now, when you've been going long enough that the weight starts to rip the hooks off the wall, you'll need to change strategies.

             

            I've got the ones my wife felt were important in a shadow box that some people pause to look at.  I'm still chucking the rest in a box with the race trophies I have yet to put shelves up to display in the 5 years since we bought this house.  Once I do, I should figure out something interesting to do with the medals.  

             

            Perhaps hook them from the front of the shelves, so my little spawn can knock them together and enjoy the cacophony...

              Haha, that's so funny. Mine are near my computer chair, so the kids are already clanging them together. Smile They also like to wear them and race around the house. 

               

              Thanks for the compliment on my display, even though it's super simple and cheap. I wish I had some fancy shadow boxes for my marathon ones.

                Sarah, that bronze one in the middle sure stands out. Such an unique shape. Smile

                Three half marathons later, I got a number. Half Fanatic #9292. :)

                      I hang mine on the bedpost in the hope that if Mrs Jules gets frisky the tinkling will put her off. It's worked for me so far but there again it could just be my appearance and poor personal hygiene.

                            These seem like completely unrelated subjects.

                              It's so fun to see how everyone displays their medals, thanks for sharing everyone!
