Weekly Roundup January 18th

After a short trip to Boston, I arrived home Sunday totally energized about my race in April.  After having the opportunity to run the hills of the Boston Marathon course with my sister, my confidence is building.  We all have ups and downs in our training cycles and of course there will be more tests of my will before race day.  Keeping an eye on my training plan just one week at a time helps alot too!

Tom hung my medal hanger in our new house this week and I was so excited to pull out my hardware.  These medals sat in a plastic container since last June and it was fun adding all my news ones I received from races in the summer and fall.

My mailman brought a surprise on Thursday.  The box had the return address of Sports Backers who is the race company that puts on the Richmond Marathon. It was my award from the 8k race! Tom is going to install a shelf next to my medal hanger for awards and race photos.  My shrine in the bedroom is taking on a life of it's own!

Now for our workouts this week.  We both got in a couple good runs and some cross training.

    1. Aww thanks Karen. My favorite ones are the AG medals. They may be small, but I fight hard for those!

  2. Pretty impressive medal display and congrats on the age group award! Looks like you both had a great week of workouts!

  3. I love your medal rack and WOW it's full. I recently received two new medal racks. My husband made me a beautiful one out of maple with pewter hooks. I also received a iron one that says "Believe". I haven't installed either one yet. I may put my half medals on the maple one and all others on the iron. Can't decide!

  4. Lovely medal display! Can't wait to see it 3 months out with another new edition :)

  5. Congratulations on your award! Love the medal hanger. I recently just got a Disney one so I can display all my Disney medals on the same one. -L

  6. Wow, that is one full medal rack!!!
