Since I won't be running another race until January, it felt like the right time to wrap up my year in bling. Even though I ran a few other races of varying lengths, I'm devoting this post to the medals earned at the half and full marathon distances. .
This is nothing but a quick [shameless] show me the medal post. One can never have enough bling -- or so they say. I'll be reviewing my year a little later. I've linked each medal with its corresponding race recap if you are interested in reading more detail. Please feel free to post your Yearly Wraps here on the Weekly Wrap as we wind down the year.
|First Light Half Marathon (#50)|
The medals and awards were hand crafted by adults with disabilities.
|Callaway Gardens Half Marathon (#51)|
A beautiful but hilly run deep in the Georgia woods. It's a favorite race I keep on repeat.
|Mercedes Half Marathon (#52)|
This was the pinnacle of humbling humidity.
But, it's always a fun time when Wendy and I are together.
|Montgomery Half Marathon (#53)|
Calf cramps get me every year at this race. This year was no exception.
|Raccoon Mountain Half Marathon (#54)|
This was an add-on to a hiking trip with middle son.
Not even measuring 12 miles, it became the half that wasn't.
|Centerpoint Half Marathon (#55)|
Running this race several times in a neighboring town,
I'd never placed...until this year - with my worst finish.
|Tear Drop Half Marathon (#56)|
|REVEL Rockies Marathon (#4)|
I hoped to set a marathon PR, but the high altitude had other ideas for me.
Teresa and I had fun but spent our weekend trapped in transportation hell.
|RnR Chicago Half Marathon (#57)|
The one where it rained and rained and rained...
Meeting so many blogging friends made this race all worthwhile!
|Candyland Half Marathon (#58)|
Although a last minute substitution, this race was big on Christmas cheer.
|And that's a wrap!|
