Anyone who has ever taken to running, knows training runs and races do not always go as planned. Over time you realize that all runs do not go well. Some go better than others. Sound advice, for runners of all levels, from one of our very first customers, Jessy Bobby, is to approach any run or race “One Mile At a Time”. In training the “One Mile At a Time” approach does two things, it allows you to get the best out of your training and it also allows you to fully enjoy each and every running moment in time. #goodtimesnoodlesalad
The Blue Diamond story of our first Medal Display, for our cherished Medals…….
The Medal Display would have to be something very special that properly celebrated and presented the years and miles of effort, including the 10 Mile runs with 5 @ Tempo in 85° temps with 80% humidity, single digit temperature 20 mile long runs in the winter along Chicago’s Lakefront Path, that many times resulted in numb extremities for hours afterwards, Hard Intervals that sometimes resulted in dry heaving at the end, that went into first qualifying for the Boston Marathon. Blue Diamond Athletic Displays innovator, Ken’s story, is much like many other BQ hopeful runners whose passion and determination drive them to excel and do things that at one point may have seemed impossible.
A doorknob, a lampshade, a shoebox, a shadowbox, hook, rack or pegboard would not be sufficient for Ken’s Medals (especially the Boston Marathon medals). So we created the best possible Medal Display for our medals at home and now it is yours to celebrate your medals or give it as a great gift to that special endurance athlete in your life.
