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.

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 first Marathon - what an awesome day!
I may be average, but my kids think I'm a rock star!
