It only comes once a year, so take your aluminum pole out of the crawl space, stretch for the Feats of Strength, and think about all of the ways people have disappointed you this year for the Airing of Grievances because it is a Festivus for the rest of us once again! And please do not rain down blows upon another patron a the store over a doll for your son.

One of these should be in my future!

One of these should be in my future!

Well, it looks like I will be heading to Birmingham, AL in February at add state #6 to my half marathon running trek! I won a contest from the 100 Half Marathons Club for a free entry into the race and I sent off my registration info earlier this week! Now, I am just waiting for my registration confirmation. I am looking forward to the race, and the awesome finisher’s medal! I guess I need to book my hotel.

Over the weekend, runners at the Wine and Dine Half Marathon festivities were treated to the first look at the Star Wars Weekend medals. Today, runDisney officially released the images of the medals for all the races for the weekend. And they are awesome!

It has been well established on this blog that I am a nerd. I am not ashamed of this. When both the Avengers and Star Wars Half Marathons were announced, I was beyond excited, even though I knew that I would be unable to run in either event. And then the Avengers race medals were released, and I was honestly underwhelmed by them. I guess I built them up too much in my mind. This is not the case with the Star Wars medals. RunDisney knocked it out of the park with these medals, and now I really wish I was able to be in California in January for these events. Good luck to all of you that will be running in these events and have fun!

Very true

Very true

This was shared from the Route 66 Marathon Facebook page in a group I am a part of over on Facebook. I think it fits nicely with 99% of the runners out there, and certainly the vast majority of the readers of this blog as well as the author of this blog.  So next time someone asks you why you run or why you deserve a medal for finishing a half marathon in two and half hours, think about this. Have a great day!

WDW Marathon Medal Display

Susan and I made this for my WDW Marathon race medal since it was my first marathon and we wanted it to stand out.  This is very similar to the display I have for my very first half marathon expect Susan and I made this on our own.  She did the painting and I cut it and added all of the mounts.  We may put Disney World down the right side, but we are very pleased with how it came out.
