It is a Sport Hooks by Heavy Medalz race medal display! I have actually wanted one of these for quite some time. In fact, I posted about them previously both on this blog as well as on the Runners World forums. It is very cool. There are 5 hooks to hang medals on that you receive at the end of each race. I don't really want to show them off per say (I don't offer up to people that I run as much as I do unless they ask specifically) but I don't like that they are just stuck in a closet somewhere.
As the name suggests, it is VERY heavy duty. It is 1/8” metal which means that as long as it is anchored into the wall really well it should have no trouble holding 10 or 15 medals. (On a side note, searching for that race medal display is probably the most searched running related thing that points people to my blog. Here I thought it would have been about me freezing my giblets off or about being hit by a car or something…. I guess everyone else doesn’t have the same odd internet habits that I do)
The bad thing is that I can’t really put it up now because we are trying to sell the house. I would have to drill a few pretty good sized holes in the wall that couldn’t easily be patched up. Since I am pretty much past wanting to do ANYTHING more on the house that I am in, that is pretty much a no-go. So, I am thinking about putting it on my desk and just admiring it. I may even try to rig up my medals on it somehow. Either way, I now have NO excuse not to run at least two more races. It wouldn’t look as good all lopsided.
