You be the judge….let me know what you think!
So often I come across the debate between runners about the kind of finisher medals they like to receive. I recently read some posts from the New River Marathon, both positive and negative about this years award. A magnet. Previous years had been wooden medals. Then you read the positives and negatives about a wooden medal. Which do you prefer? Do you mind?
I recently had an amazing experience running in the inaugural Asheville Marathon on the Biltmore Estate in North Carolina. I just had to sign up for this race! The chance to run on this glorious estate? A no brainer. When I crossed the finish line in the frigid sub freezing temperature, I was wrapped in a logo’d blanket, and had a carved wooden medal placed around my neck. I love it! Perfectly appropriate for this race, the location in the mountains, and the rustic nature of the surroundings.
