When Neil and I were house hunting one of my key requirements was a space in the house that I could spin and set up a workout room. I wanted a lot of visual cues for motivation in what would be my pain cave so I figured this would be the perfect place in our home to display my race medals.
When I first started racing I would put together shadow boxes to show off my medals. I’ve also had a few of my really important medals framed with some race photos – my first two half Ironmans and my first Ironman.
I wanted a way to hang up a lot of medals in a way that I could still show off their beautiful ribbons. I also wanted some flexibility to add more medals.
Curtain rods! I picked up two inexpensive curtain rods from Target when they were on sale. I love the thickness of the curtain rod and the mercury glass finials.
I’ve got lots of space between the medals at the moment, plus I’ve left some room on the end for the Goofy Challenge medals I hope to be earning in January!
How do you display your race medals? If you want to see my race medal display in our old house…head on over here!
