Finally!

 I won this medal hanger MONTHS ago from The Althletarian. I finally got it hung up and my medals on it.  All 6.  I think I need more.  Lots more!


Makes me happy to look at them.  Makes me want to run  :)

It is motivating to see them on display and not just piled in a drawer with all  my race bibs.  I need to do something with all those too.  

 I am excited about getting it all filled up and putting some more medals on it this year. 

I have it hanging in a corner in my bedroom.  When I am on the elliptical this is what I stare at.  I plan to put up a cork board or something and make this my corner of inspiration.

Needs a little something more doesn't it?  I think the corkboard with pictures, quotes, some race bibs.  Anything else you can think of that you add to yours?

Do you have a wall or corner of inspiration?  What room of the house is it in?

  3. I've taken over a small corkboard in my basement with medals and bibs and such. Much like my stories about running, it looks more impressive than it really is.

  4. I love it! Once I actually invest in a treadmill, I have big plans for an inspiration wall next to it in my basement.

  6. Love it!! Yes put up a cork board and then I like to put my race bibs, stickers I get from expos, if I see a race I want to run in a magazine I put it up, inpirational quotes. I found some cool stuff in the sticker scrapbook section of Michaels and put that up too

  7. That is really cool. Love it.
    My husband put a big piece of ply wood, painted white, out in the garage. Then we tack all my race numbers to it. There is also two big hooks(that would hold my bike if I didn't store them next to my bed) that I hang my medals on. If we ever move we can just take down the board and move the whole thing without removing the numbers.

  12. I love that! I think a corkboard is a great idea! I also saw Jill (jillconyers.com) did a wall with photos and framed bib numbers which was really nice!

  13. I think you're right, a cork board with pics is in order! I need one of those medal hangers pretty badly! I'm just to something to get one on my own.

    I like that Montana medal! Maybe it's the green but it's really eye catching!

  14. I love it! And I have no doubt you'll fill it up :) I really want one of those!!! You could hang all of your bibs up on the wall like wall paper. I have always had mine hanging up and I love looking at them!

  17. Love it! I love my hanger that I have. So far I have one sticker next to it, but I also have a white board and I plan to add some motivation quotes and photos if I ever print them out. :)

  20. I just saw your comment on Redonkulous Runner and I totally feel the non supportive husband issue! I am in the same boat : ( He is super annoyed by my marathon training. I am going on three years and he is just now starting to come around a little.

  24. Love it! A cork board with quotes, pictures, etc would be perfect! I have my bibs in a bibfolio so I don't misplace any of them.

  25. So very jealous of your medal holder. I want one so bad, but like you, want more medals for it! Love the idea of having your own little corner. Very cool.

  27. this is the first time i've seen a heart shaped medal- so unique. I personally just have my medal hangers and thats it, but I know a lot of people do have quotes and such around theirs

  28. So jealous!! I want one of these so much!!

  29. I would like to work on an inspirational board too. And I need to hang my medal hanger up. I made one out of wood. :)

  30. it looks great and now I want one! I showed it to my husband...you know hint hint!!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oh my gosh, that's so fun!!! where do I get one of those?? Mine are all sitting in a drawer! lol

  32. Man, your medals are so colorful! I've got seven medals on mine, and all but one of the straps are black.

    I've been wanting to put something else around mine, too, but I don't know what. I thought about putting race photos around them, but a) the thought of putting photos of myself on the wall sounds completely narcissistic and b) I'm too cheap to buy race photos.

  33. Looks really good! I've got to hang mine up.
