Races bring people together for fun, but usually for a greater-good cause, as well. I don’t recall many races that weren’t bringing about awareness or raising funds for community needs. We get to be part of that by running the race and sharing our experience. Each medal earned represents a part of history. We each get to be part of something great, no matter how small our role. How many of us have raised funds for veteran organizations, medical research, and community charities? Some of us do not get to see the tangible effects of this fundraising. Some of us do. Either way, we earn the medal along with all the other amazing runners. I hope you look at your collection and feel like a super hero, because you truly are.
Show me your bling! Post pictures of your favorite medal and tell me why it’s meaningful for you.
