It’s the second day of the Blogging from A-Z Challenge and today’s post is all about Bling!

When it comes to running, surely everything is about bling, right? Well, at one time that might have been the case. As a new runner, I was a real magpie when it came to race medals, but these days I can take it or leave it… unless, of course, it’s a particularly special piece of bling or I’m taking part in a particularly challenging race.

In terms of the bling that I have earned over the years, these are some of my favourites.

My Top 5 Race Medals:

London to Brighton 100K (2014)

L2B Medal


South Coast Challenge 54K (2016)


Winter Is Coming 5K (2016)


Extra Mile (2016)


Brighton Marathon (2015)

Brighton Marathon 2015 Medal

      Ha ha! How could I refuse when you put it like that?! 😀
      It really is a cute medal, but I couldn’t include it as I haven’t earned it yet. So yes, I promise I’ll do the Easter 5K, and not on the treadmill either.

      The 2017 Brighton Marathon is this weekend, so I’ll take some photos and do a spectator post for that… their bling is always really nice too and you get the same medal for the 10K, which is brilliant, so I might have to do that again next year. We shall see… 😉
