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!
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?
I love the #avengershalf weekend hard. It's my personal favorite of all the race weekends ❤️ The Doctor Strange 10k was awesome: nothing beats running #disneyland at #Christmas! And the medal is magical- but I wasn't able to portal to the finish like I hoped ? #rundisney #doctorstrange #drstrange10k #eyeofagamotto #marvel #disney #disneyig
My favorite 5k. Mostly because this medallion is pretty adorable. Yes. #stormtroopers are cute- just misunderstood! ? starting up my #runDisney race recaps from the #starwarsdarkside races. Just in time for 2017 registration! (And yes, I'm selling bibs if you need to buy!) #ontheblog #maytheforcebewithyou #run #runchat #waltdisneyworld #disneygram
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.
