Now let’s talk about the bling, shall we? After helping with an office holiday party and some fun superlative-esque awards, I have had the “best of” categories on my brain. I figured it would be fun to apply something similar to my race medals.
Best Accessory: Zooma NapaI love the little wine glass charm from this medal. I have heard lots of people remove them for adding to a charm bracelet but I like my bling blingy so it will be staying on my medal!
Most Interactive: Tower of Terror 10 MilerI LOVE that the elevator car on the medal moves – definitely a cool medal! And it goes without saying that we are grateful we got to experience this runDisney event before it concluded its final running this fall.
The one I still don’t love: Richmond MarathonThis race still makes me a bit sad that it went so off course. But as your stereotypical girl who loves fall, I really do adore the theming on this medal and it is really gorgeous in person. I like to think a small bit of my soul is housed in this medal, where I proved that no matter how bad it hurts or how much it sucks, I can get myself across a finish line.
Stinkiest Ribbon: Rock ‘n Roll Virginia Beach Half MarathonA warm summer day meant this was without a doubt the sweatiest race of the year…so I can only assume this ribbon has some sort of sweaty, stinky residue from that day. I’m only kidding here guys!
Best Holiday Theme: Surf-n-Santa 5 MilerI love that this medal can also be used as a Christmas ornament on the tree. For now, it will happily reside on my medal rack for me to enjoy all year long.
The Divas: Dopey Challenge BlingThey didn’t belong on my regular medal rack so they got their own space as a permanent shrine to conquering 48.6 miles.
If you could give an award to one of your medals, what would it be?
