2012/2013 – A PERIOD IN COLLECTIONS

September 12, 2013

Just for a little change of pace, here is a little photographic montage of random items that have been associated with the running events I have entered for the period between September 2012 and September 2013.

We begin with a collection of Bibs that I have run in over this 12 month period. These numbers won’t have anything to do with my ability or lack thereof. Most of the time it merely reflects how many entrants there have been by the time I completed my nomination form. Perhaps my number for these events in the future (provided I run in them) will be lower in the next 12 months.

The next couple of pictures are either finish line goodies or promotional gear sent out with the above race bibs. The only thing that complains about this is my wardrobe which isn’t yet overflowing but it IS getting close. I do wear these shirts from time to time, sometimes for training, other times just to wear around to get out of work uniforms.

 

 

Next comes the fruits of the so called labour of pounding the pavement. It’s a big reason why many of us don’t do it for money and it’s a big lure to get to the finish line. All of these have been collected during 2013, but may well be  kept forever. After all, these aren’t exactly medals that sell at an auction house or on EBAY, and for good reason.

Certainly this isn’t the end of the running for the year, nor is it a complete collection across the events I have entered for the past year. Sadly I didn’t get a picture of the bib for the Rocky River Run this year, although this was almost an 11th hour (as opposed to last minute) entry. There are also other events that I am competing in over the coming months before 2013 comes to a close. Indeed the next stop is this Sunday in Adelaide for the City-Bay Fun Run where over 30000 will take part. There are other events that certainly have tickled my fancy that are in the intervening period between the conclusion of Sunday’s event and the City2Sea in Melbourne in mid November which will definitely be the last event I will be taking part in this year. A decision on whether I lodge an entry will depend mainly on transport and associated costs of the event, as well as work commitments.
