My Shrine

Put your hand up if you have a "shrine" in your home, apartment, place of abode!  If you have been running for a while, you will have multiple medals, perhaps a few age group awards and maybe a plaque or two.  While Christine visited during the Easter weekend, she commented that she was going to redo my shrine.  Yup, that's what she called it.  I have a bookshelf over my desk that houses races photos, a special tennis trophy and other souvenirs from races.
Before the transformation
The next step was finding photo frames and places for all my goodies!  Everyone has race memorabilia, but what do you want to have on display?  I chose special race photos, the runDisney race buttons, and a few other items like my Mickey Vinylmation and some age group awards.
My favorite age group awards!

And my medals went from this:


To this:

Now I have all my race medals in one place!

And here is the result of my shrine makeover!

Thanks Christine for making my desk less of a mess and for rearranging everything so well.  I love the new look and especially my new monogrammed frame with one of our Dopey Challenge photos!

Do you have a place where you display your medals and race photos, souvenirs?  Please tell us about it, and better yet, send us a photo at werundisney@gmail.com and we will feature some in a future post!

  2. SO.MUCH.AWESOMENESS! I love it. I don't have a shrine yet unfortunately. Robert and I are moving to an apartment in the Woodlands in a few weeks, though, so maybe with all the unpacking, I'll get to making one!

  3. This is so cool! I am actually surprised that you didn't have this done before! Glad to have seen your Enchanted 10K age group award. I knew you had won it and was waiting for it in the mail. I do have a display I am working on as well. I'll need to finish it up this weekend so I can snap some pics. Thanks for the motivation!

  4. I used to have all my medals and stuff on the fireplace mantle in our bedroom and then I eventually felt bad because I didn't necessarily think my "shrine" of running stuff belonged in our bedroom so I took it all down. Right now it's all packed away since we (hopefully!) will be moving at some point this summer. Hopefully we'll have an office that we can put all our running/ hockey/ disney stuff in!

  7. I love the new shrine! I can't wait to collect more race goodies so that I can start mine! Right now all my medals are in a drawer...I definitely need to do something about that.

  9. So organized! And colorful! We have two medal hangers up on the wall to corral the bling, but no trophies or plaques - for a 'shrine' area. You have me thinking we need to print and frame some race photos though - all the ones we have are digital only.

  10. I don't have a shrine in my house...well I have a medal hanger but that's it! I have all of these other goodies I'd like to diplay. Once we move into a new house I'll be finding the perfect spot to proudly showcase my running bling :)
