New shoes, old shoes and a homemade medal and PB board :)

As promised to Ancientmum yesterday here is a picture of the long awaited medal board complete with places for post race photos, PB chalk area, numbers and medals. Made this myself with credit to the hubby for cutting the wood, trim and drilling the holes for the screws, I take credit for the painting, photos, medals and numbers ;) oh and if you're wondering where the marathon PB section is, I didn't add one, 1 HM was enough and I don't need an empty slot to tarnish mentally my accomplishments so if I ever go insane I can add it to the 'other' section in which I'll add the Blaydon race 5.7mile distance too ;)

In other news my house which has been on the market 2 1/2 weeks has sold STC so I can now concentrate on my running again after managing 2 runs in 2 weeks (14 viewings and trying to keep on top of the house was interfering!) So here goes the next chapter, just one small job left to do, find somewhere to move to! 😂

Happy running folks! Today's a good day! :D

That's brilliant, well done on making it yourself! I have to admit I copied Rignold and ordered one off ebay. It's nice to be able to display things, keeps us motivated, reminding us what we can do!

I'd seen Rigs one on Amazon & it sparked the idea to make my own, I can't wait to find a wall for it when we move as I love looking at my photos and medals, it's definitely motivating :)

It looks smashing! Very professional job there, and well done to hubby for getting the trim so neat. I really like that you have included pictures, that brings it to a whole new level. It is, to put it simply, brilliant!

Congrats also on the house. That must be a huge relief!

I bought something similar for hubby rob and his westie, but your homemade one is just as good if not better! Clever you! Are you taking orders?

Not at the was hard to make it around house viewings.....kept having to hide it :D Have loads of paint left though, think I could make a fair few from a small tin!

Bless you I wasn't being serious, but will take you up on it none the less. You get yourself into a new property first, I really appreciate the offer though. No hurry at all.
