Running longer and faster… a few thoughts…

A medal is a medal

You receive a medal when you’ve won a race or are in the three best, right? Marathon is an interesting distance for which broad range of runners of all kinds will endure or enjoy a 26.2miles and get a medal for it… As in this mini film on YouTube were it is said “that’s stupid, you don’t give medal to losers”… Ran 5 marathons, 4 half marathons and a few 10K in the past 1.5year and never have I felt like a looser. When I was swimming (younger age 🙂 ) medals were for the 3 best. I have a few and proud of them.

Here is the one from NYC marathon 2012. Mixed feeling about it as despite the Manhatthathon run, the REAL marathon was not run and therefore should not be a medal for it.

  1. Den ser ju helt annorlunda ut än min medalj. Trodde de skulle vara snarlika, ungefär som Berlin. Men du har förtjänat den, du sprang ju en mara i NY. Jag hade nog också gjort det.

    • Tack! Jo, en medalj är fortfarande en medalj 🙂 Var jätteglad att fĂĄ den kan jag säga när Erik “Tricky” sa att han hade hämtat ĂĄt oss! Den kommer dock inte att vara en av mina favoriter… Eller skall jag gravera “Manhatthathon” pĂĄ den, he he he!
