2016 Race Bling

Sharing is caring!

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?


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.

What was your favorite bling this year?

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.

*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!

I know! They are pretty cool medals. It's why I keep going back!

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.

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 ;-)

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!
