Not only is the display awesome, it's the best service you'll ever get!
I do not work for them or know them, just very impressed with the product and the service.

Check them out on Facebook for the awesome pictures.
I've had one of theirs bookmarked and I'm going to spring for it this month. I now have 4 medals and they are starting to clutter the top of my dresser.

Well, race week here for me. A local sprint triathlon.

Anyway, each race week I change my facebook cover photo to the below as a Disney inspired "Beast Mode" pic...anyway, thought I would share in case anyone wants to borrow it or just use it as motivation at any point.

Anyone running the Broad Street run in Philly this Sunday? I will be, though I'm not properly prepared yet. My goal is to finish in injured :-)

Just signed up for the marathon last night--so excited!!!! Well, not excited enough to not wait for my Disney Visa to arrive so I could get the $15 discount . Card arrived, marathon entered, all is good.

Oh, yeah. There's that training thing to do...haven't run in years. But I used to run a lot, so I'm looking forward to getting back into that.

See ya there!

Time for me to weigh in......
I'm going Goofy in 2014 and I'm excited, nervous, scared and a bit nuts.....but that's ok!

Today was my second Half Marathon (BMO Vancouver). My first was Donald at the 2013 WDW Half. I've never been a runner, and started running last summer only to train for Donald this year (with DW, but she had to pull out because we're expecting our first baby!). In high school, I couldn't run more than a lap on the track without huffing & puffing, and near-collapsing. Now (14 years later) I've got 2 half marathons and 3 10k's under my belt and I'm flipping addicted to this running thing.

I did way better than I thought I could today. My legs hurt, I have to take a 5-hour redeye flight home (wearing my medal & compression socks, of course!), but I'd do it again tomorrow if my body could.

........

Goofy, however, is another matter entirely. What have I gotten myself into???

~~~~~mad grin~~~~

Iron Sport Works makes great medal hangers too. The Texas Marathon Challenge in the middle of the home page is one they custom made for me. They're owned by two Disney lovers in FL, right outside Orlando. http://www.ironsportworks.com/

Talking

Hi everybody! Wasn't planning on it, but somehow got talked into doing the Half in 2014! Hopefully, the IT's will control themselves and let me do both this and the 2013 W&D. I've never done this particular race before so any newbie advice would be greatly appreciated. Last year's W&D was my first Disney race and needless to say.....I'm hooked! Looking forward to meeting all my fellow WISH'ers in both November and January!

You can do it...

You have one under your belt and this one will feel easier. Well, after the pain of waking at 0200.... I say pain, but honestly, no one really sleeps the night before a race.
