It’s been a busy week so sorry for not posting, but on an exciting front, less than a week until the Berlin Marathon! Anyway as you all know one of the most exciting parts of completing a race for me is getting the medal! Fortunately I’ve had a number of races this year in San Diego, Chicago, Portland, Pasadena, and Seattle so I have medals from all of those races as well as the heavy medals. Well a company sprung up that makes some beautiful metal medal displays. They’re called Sporthooks and I think that they’re a pretty small company, but one of the owner’s Marcey is really pleasant and easy to work with.
I actually ordered the R ‘n’ R winged holder and had a little customization to it. I had them add 2012 in the middle to symbolize all of the races that I will have run. Fortunately with a quick e-mail to Marcey I was able to get a drawing within a day. In fact within 2 days the rack was cut and put in the mail. I finally hung the rack up this week and put the early medals on it and I think that it looks gorgeous. I can’t wait until I get the last medals of the year. Overall the rack is lovely and working with Marcey was a breeze!
