When I was young I displayed all my trophies and medals I won from gymnastics in my room. Ok, I had them out when I was in highschool as well. It wasn't until college that I took all my trophies down and boxed them up and put them in my closet.
So one would think when it comes to running and triathlons that I would love to display my accomplishments with my medals, but I don't. When I get home from a race I basically through the medal wherever. It might up under the bed, it may end up in my laundry room, or I at the bottom of a closet. Needless to say they are not displayed and I don't even kept them all in once place and for sure have lost most of them. I'm not sure why I don't care about the medals? I don't know if it's because I had medals displayed when I was younger or if crossing the finish line is enough for me.
Either way, if you happen to be someone who loves the race medals and loves to display them, I think that's great!!! You should be proud of yourself :) Plus there is a lot of cool medal displays out there.
In an effort to actually do something with the stuff I get from races, I started (about two months ago) to save my race bibs. I write the date and my time on the back of each, then bring them into work and put them on my cube wall. This is just incase my co-workers wonder why I always come in wearing spandex and look like crap most of the time....
Anyhow, I wish I had kept all of my bibs from my races so my wall could be filled, but it'll get there I'm sure.
Do you display your medals or bib numbers? Or do they get tossed into a box?
Happy Tues All :)
