Ambassadors

Kathleen Taylor and Aiden Jaquez

I bought my first Blue Diamond athletic display years ago when the company first started. (I wasn’t sure of the year). I met Nell at a local race and fell in love with the displays. When Aiden started accumulating medals Blue Diamond made him a custom display which he loves. I think I’ve bought a total of 5 displays. They are the best. The craftsmanship is beyond amazing and I love supporting a local small business. Aiden and I are in the process of running a half marathon in every state. Aiden ran his first half marathon at age 6 and will finish his 50th in October 2019 at the age of 11, thus setting a world record to be the youngest to do so. Next up

Dave Ross

I’ve been running for some 37 years now, since I was a freshman in high school. I ran some OK times as a younger man including a 1:12:57 half marathon and 2:36:57 for the marathon. As a master I’ve run under 3 hours for the marathon a handful of times including a 2:59:43 at CIM in 2016 at age 49. I’m planning on running the USATF National Club Cross Country Championships in Spokane On December 8th and then half marathon races in January and in early March. After that I plan to try to switch gears and run some shorter, faster races in the sing and summer and will probably look to run a ‘fast’ half marathon in the fall. No full marathons on my

Andy Querio

My name is Andy Querio and I live in Aurora, IL. I have been a very happy customer of Nell and Ken at Blue Diamond Athletic Displays since their beginning. But, more than that, I have been proud and good friends with both of them over these many years. I’ve watched them sprout from a small seed and continue to grow over the years to where they help runners across the country proudly display their many accomplishments. The product speaks for itself – solid, heavy duty, and unique to each runner’s tastes. They both understand and get runners, aware of what makes us tick, and work with each individual. Nell and Ken worked with my idea and helped create a special medal display for my

Terri

I’m a mom of two, I work 2 jobs, and my passion is running. I run six days/week, and strength & cross train 7 days/week in addition. I’ve been running since high school, but not until my (now 21 year old) daughter ran her 1st cross country race, did I consider putting on a race bib. I just finished my 12th marathon in Corning, New York in September. I’m now training for my 13th marathon – Carmel, IN in March 2019. To me, the medal at the finish line represents far more than the 26.2 miles on race day. It’s the reward for 16-18 weeks of 4:30 am wake-ups, outdoor runs in sometimes brutal conditions, 50+ miles/week and cross training to exhaustion. When I bring
