Baaa! Baaaa!

First my refrigerator, now this:  I'm showing off my medals, a la Marlene.  I went back and forth on whether I was going to post this or not.  I've only finished two marathons.  None of my local races give out bling for less than a half-marathon distance.  And goodness knows I've never placed in my age group!  But, here's what I realized (and it's right there in the title of my blog):  I'm an average athlete.  I've never claimed to be anything other than mediocre, so hopefully none of you came to this post expecting to see a race closet full of hardware.  But if you come to my house and walk down my hallway, you will see this:
My side

The Hubs' side

From my first Half Marathon.  It's a REAL cowbell!

My first Marathon - what an awesome day!

I may be average, but my kids think I'm a rock star!

That's so awesome! I love how you display them in your home. My bibs are just in a binder and my medals are hanging up in my closet. I have to figure out something better!

I have done 4 races and none of them gave out medals. Sad face!

I beg to differ on the average part! Love your display and I think I'll make it my mission to find a race with an awesome cowbell!

I have to do something similar with my bibs. I have them just stuffed into a shoebox at this point :)

I love this. I am so jealous. I would have bever thought to do this. What a beautiful display. I have thrown all my bibs away, but still have all my medals. I want a cowbell!! I'm going to look around and see if there are any of those races in Texas.
Average...whatever. You are amazing!!
