2016 Race Bling

Tuesdays on the Run Link Up- every Tuesday we have a new running related topic. Join your favorite running bloggers in linking up each week.

We might do it for the bling- but seriously, why wouldn’t we? It’s a pretty sweet reward after a hard run effort.

This week on Tuesdays on the Run we are showing off our 2016 race bling. Mine is all runDisney (NOT a big shocker) except for three local races. And that might be 3x’s as many as I ran last year, so hey, it’s an improvement!

Don’t forget to link up with Erika, Marcia and me for this week’s Tuesdays on the Run. Show us your bling!


2016 Race Bling

I counted down in reverse because my first bling of 2016 is my BEST bling. But I loved each of these races for various reasons and the medals still make me smile. I guess running isn’t all THAT bad, eh?






No really. They have cookies. #darkside #starwars #carrotcakecookie #hollywoodstudios #darksidechallenge

And my #1 bling on the year: I still can’t believe this happened.

What a challenge earning this was for me!


So looking back, I can admit that 2016 was a fun year. It was nowhere near my most successful year, but it was one where I learned a lot. Even when I didn’t want to run, I usually ended up appreciating something about the run. Even if it was the shiny medal at the very end.

Even when I didn’t want to run, I usually ended up appreciating something about the run. And sometimes it was the shiny medal at the very end. I do love a good medal!

  1. Coveting all that Star Wars bling!

  2. Those Disney medals are amazing!

  3. I want a death star cookie to go with that Star Wars bling!

  4. Congrats on your races! Disney medals are awesome! I have never ran any of the Star Wars races. I like how you displayed your Princess ones.

  5. For someone who doesn’t run a lot, you sure rack up the bling! And I’m kind of envious — I have so little — most of the races i do don’t have bling.

    Love the Star Wars medals!

  6. Wow- those are some impressive medals! I’ve never done a Disney race- it’s fun to see your bling. Congrats on a really awesome year in running!

  7. Wow the Disney medals never fail to impress me 🙂 Congrats an a great 2017!

  8. I love love love that shot of the marathon medal and the castle in the back ground!!!

    What a great year of racing and bling!!
    It is such a nice reward after all the hard work and training!

  9. I want to go after the Light Side 10k medal. I loved the Tink 10k at DL, and want to do another 10k out there.

  10. Run Disney does make the best medals. 🙂 I love that Doctor Strange medal!

  11. I love how most of your medal pics feature food or drink! 🙂

  12. You earned some nice medals this year! And its always good to learn something from a run, but a medal is definitely a nice reward even if you don’t have a great run!

  13. Run Disney just has the best medals. Period. I did three races this year at Disney: Princess HM, Star Wars Dark Side Challenge and Wine n Dine 10k. I have a few scheduled for next year too. I’ll finally be getting that Kessel Run Challenge medal! Every year I say I’m going to take a break from Disney because they are so expensive, but every year I obviously am lying about that 😉

  14. Very nice bling indeed ! I am counting the days until I can sign up for the Disneyland Paris half marathon in Sept. 2017. Registration doesn’t open until spring…. grrrr.

    Have a great holiday Patty and thank you for the link up.

  15. *Sigh.* I’m not a big Star Wars fan, but I adore that #kesselrunchallenge medal! And the Captain America 5k is pretty sweet, too. They both make me want to try a Star Wars or Super Heroes race weekend!

  16. That is an amazing year of bling! I am a big fan of Disney races and they certainly never disappoint with their medals. It is where I earned my first marathon medal in January 2016. Like you, I think it is the most special of the year for me.


  1. […] as always to Erika, Patty and Marcia for hosting our […]
