My medal for the cancelled Leicester Half Marathon (which became a virtual Half Marathon) arrived in the post today. I ran the distance on the day that the race was scheduled early in October.
I like this medal. I also like the snazzy red packaging that it came in. Most of the label peeled off nicely, so it will come in handy for Christmas. Back to the medal. I am not sure why it has a hole in the middle. As far as I know Leicester does not have a great big hole running through the middle of it. In line with my recent aim to get medals that only have animals on them I wish it had a Leicestershire Sheep. My next medal will be for the Benidorm 10K. At best I am hoping for a Spanish bull but at least a stuffed donkey will do.November 11, 2019 at 10:27 pm #6698Richard WoodfieldParticipant
Smart medal Barry. I reckon that shape is meant to depict the route of that event. Alternatively it also looks rather like a piece of fox’s poo – long, fairly thin and of rather indeterminate shape.November 12, 2019 at 3:36 pm #6759
I will take the fox’s poo Richard, as it is animal related 😀November 12, 2019 at 7:45 pm #6764Vicky PixiKeymaster
@barrygriffin LOL Barry – No line running through Leicester but there should be😱 a big line through the marathon..haha.. im allowed to say that coz i done it and hated it (1 big poo hole – ooooo look theres the hole)
But another medal to add to your collection!November 13, 2019 at 8:17 am #6772
@Vicky Pixi. I will always think of Leicester having a big poo hole in the centre of it now😖November 13, 2019 at 8:34 am #6773sharnie1Keymaster
Lol to Vicky – having been to Leicester a couple of times I’m not sure about it as a destination for a race and think you had a lucky escape getting to pick your own route on a virtual run 😉 nice that they did that with the medals though and it’s not a bad bit of bling – though woefully lacking on the animal theme – though if you screw your eyes up and tilt your head you can almost get the hole to be a slug 🙂November 13, 2019 at 9:39 am #6774meercat58Participant
Surely thats a caterpillar Barry 😆😆November 14, 2019 at 5:30 pm #6787Chris PattisonParticipant
ha ha .. a lovely piece of fox poo bling Barry. Hopefully you’ll get to run it proper next year, I’ll be tempted myself.November 16, 2019 at 10:01 am #6794jason dawsonParticipant
nice photo of a nice medal, well done and well deserved.November 20, 2019 at 2:51 pm #6844JillyMPParticipant
Fox poo? I shall ask Salsa, she is an expert. Good bling though and nice reusable packaging.
Perhaps the stuffed donkey will be wearing a sombrero?
