Bling Blings!

After joining the recently concluded Nature Valley 21km race and getting a huge medal from finishing this hard (at least for me) race, I decided to look for all of our past medals and see how many we've gathered.

No podium finish but for a certain runner, that isn't the important thing:

"For all of us, the miracle isn't that we finish, the miracle is that we have the courage to start." -- John "The Penguin" Bingham

The various New Balance races including the first very long race I did at Clark with the 25km distance...

10k Book Run at Fort Bonifacio

My first 21km road race at Kota Kinabalu. Ran it with Benny while everyone else from our group slept!

Our fave medals so far because of the memorable experience and the very colorful and eye-catching medals. We will never look at Golden Gate Bridge the same way again...

Run the Wall and get The Wall Medal! What a World Wonder: Great Wall 10k and 21k race

The very popular Condura races!

Various 21km Road Races

RunRio 21km Races, including the recently concluded RunRio Leg 2 : Nature Valley 21km

The hardest medals I had to earn: Four 42.2km medals! Who would have thought?! Not this Fatboy!

Now for some non-running medals:

Star Cruise Medal that I won over a game they had there. Took this relaxing ride January 2010!

And a souvenir I bought (cheaply!) at Tianamen Square from recent China trip!

What we have so far! 25 finisher medals and 2 non-running medals!

What about you? What's your race collections?
