I do certainly love a heavy finisher’s medal after a marathon; or an age-group ribbon when I actually race at a 5k or 10k (thank you, ORRC, for awarding age group ribbons 5-deep) … but a little “bling” ranks right up there with free Jamba Juice and winning a massage in a raffle.
At the 2011 Happy Girls Half Marathon, all finishers will get a beautiful necklace that’s dainty enough to wear on a run and suitable for the post-run socializing. The necklace is made by Silverado Jewelry Gallery in Bend!
