Your mylar blankets?
Why or why not?
I've recently come to the conclusion that I have too much crap from races, crap that doesn't really mean anything to me. I don't save bibs, except for special races (I have Mt. Washington and the ESBRU on my wall at work). I don't save blankets, unless I'm planning a Halloween costume and need them for that.
|The medals from my first five marathons are stuck in this tin.|
|My favorite bibs are taped to a bookshelf|
in my office. Right above a shirtless picture
of Frank Shorter. So I like me some eye
candy, you have a problem with that?
|My last few medals are stuck on the rack|
where I hang my keys next to the door.
|Here are all the rest. On a corner of a bookshelf.|
I'm considering getting rid of some medals. None of the marathon medals, mind you, but maybe some of the medals for lesser races? On one hand, each represents an accomplishment of some sort. But on the other hand, I'm not at the point where I really need a reminder that I finished a 5m race. I think running is cool, but I don't think that I'm a winner just for getting to the finish line.
