Medal for Fit Girl

You’ll remember Fit Girl ran her first half marathon on the 8th March… https://lornpearsontrains.co.uk/2015/03/08/fit-girls-first-half-marathon/

She loved it and was so chuffed that her knee held up and she was able to run the whole thing in under 2 hours, well under 2 hours, in 1:52:42.

But she was WELL disappointed when we got the goodie bag in the end and it didn’t contain a medal. 😦 We got a t shirt that’s too big, a banana, a water and a caramel biscuit.

I explained that sometimes they don’t give medals after events, some people don’t want medals, so sometimes they’re not included. She was well gutted though. 😦

So the other day I went online and ordered her (and I) a medal, with an engraving of her time and the event. And a green and white ribbon, just for her. 🙂

So here goes, £4.50 plus postage for two medals.

And I get to add mine to my medal collection in my spare room too. 🙂 https://lornpearsontrains.co.uk/2014/07/28/my-medals/

    Is that not half the reason for running? “It’s all about the bling” the medal and the technical t shirts? I run quite a few of the organised events with a load of my friends from parkrun and get a little miffed if there’s no reward after all my efforts. Just that little momento to remind me of all the fun I had.
