    Thought maybe we could have a little trophy cabinet in the corner of the pub!
    Not to be competitive or anything, but just to see what we can accumulate (or perhaps have already accumulated) between us.
    Maybe it'll be interesting to see the variety from different locations, etc...
    (or maybe the cabinet will just gather dust -who knows...)

    I'll put this one in to start:
    Nothing special -Draycote Water 10km -March 2019...

    I like this idea, so I stickied it.

    I hope to get time to add some myself.

    The pirate skull is not my photograph, but that is the medal we took home that year. ☠️
    All these races were in Florida, spread out over many years. I have several more but these were among the most unique. The fanciness of the medal is a big determining factor into whether I will join a race.

    Those are some cool medals @Kungaloosh Dan !

    Interesting timing with this thread. Usually I am modest/timid and don't toot my own horn. While I love running and also competing and pushing for PRs I never really gave much thought to the medals and such. They went on the corner of my mirror on my dresser, but it ended up a pile of about 30 medals or more together, none were really visible lol plus a bunch a just put in a drawer. Well a couple weeks ago I thought I ought to build a display to hold them and show them off more properly. Many of them are so unique and interesting it would discredit the designer not putting them on display right? I thought of something simple like the tie rack or a curtain rod, but it just wouldn't display them nicely the way I envision. So I set out to design something custom, where the width and height of each can be individually adjusted, in multiple layers, with a shelf atop to hold some of the plaques and pint glasses and other finisher things I've received other than medals. I do like to over-engineer things I've been told lol. Used all repurposed wood from breaking down pallets I had. Finally got it built but still making a few tweaks... stay tuned and I'll try to get some pics.

    Can't wait to see what you've done!

    I put my kids' taekwondo tournament medals over the curtain rod like a valance, and I think it looks amazing! And I don't mind bragging either...they've earned them through blood, sweat, and tears!
