Last week I posted two pieces about bling. One on the importance of finisher’s medals and one discussing the proliferation of “Challenge medals.”
Given the responses from the community at large, finishers medals clearly have different meanings to all of us. For some of us it’s all about the bling, whereas for others the medals are a nice token reminder of a race but quickly forgotten.
Well, as an epilogue to those stories, I wanted to bring to your attention an option for those of you who are looking to “cull their bling herd” or have extra medals just collecting dust in a drawer. It’s a small gesture on your part, but it could mean so much more to a child.
