Today I am writing to participate in the “Tuesdays on the Run” link up. Today’s topic is “Dream race swag. What’s the best thing you ever got? What would you love?”
The following three blogs host this “link up”
I feel like I’ve already receive the ultimate “race swag” … twice! Medals don’t always do it for me. I like a nice t-shirt, but nothing compares to the two years I ran the Nike Women’s Half Marathon in DC.
Nike Women’s Half Marathon 2013
Nike Women’s Half Marathon 2014
Necklace from 2014
I was lucky to run this race both years it was held in Washington, D.C. It was a lottery system to get into the race and my friend Amy and I got in both years. I have always wanted to do a Nike Women’s race. They’ve been held in San Francisco for years. I actually stumbled upon the first running blog I ever found through searching for the San Francisco race and the medal. Oh the medal… it’s no ordinary race medal…
It’s a Tiffany’s necklace! Handed out by men in suits at the end of the race. I ran fast to get to those silver platters that held tiny Tiffany blue boxes. I love both of my necklaces from the 2013 and 2014 races. I got a PR at both races too. I hope to run a Nike race again in the future and maybe get another Tiffany’s necklace! I’ve never gotten anything else from a race that I wear daily, so these two necklaces are extra special to me!
