Absolutely, positively, hands down, bar none! If you have had the opportunity to run in any of the Nike Women’s Half Marathon series races, I bet you know what I’m about to share. Yes, the best finisher’s
medal necklace EVER! Compliments of Tiffany & Co. Now, don’t get me wrong, I paid for that finisher’s necklace in a round about way, but it’s the only medal necklace I ever wear. Nike was pretty smart, I thought, when they paired with Tiffany & Co. What girl doesn’t want a piece of Tiffany jewelry that showcases her favorite sport and passion, running! Drum roll, please!
And then there was the Nike Expo. My BFF & BRF, Holly, ran Nike with me in 2013 & 2014 and when we were at the expo we were like, TAKE.MY.MONEY.NOW! I mean who can’t resist a pair of these awesome sneakers. Not me 🙂
Honestly I’ve run my share of 5k’s, 1/2 marathons, and marathons, but nothing compares to the Nike races I was fortunate enough to run in Washington D.C. You can read the race recap here.
While I’m on the topic of extremely impressive race swag, I can’t help but to mention the Baltimore Running Festival. Their UnderArmour race shirts are the best and they never, ever disappoint! I have several half marathon shirts and a 5k shirt. I just need the marathon shirt to round out my collection. I may, just may, earn that shirt this fall but I’m truly on the fence. I would love to run Baltimore again in the fall because when I ran the half-marathon last fall, I came home with this:
Yes, I’m a sucker for commemorative race jewelry and chances are if Pandora is going to show up in Baltimore, I’ll be there too in some fashion. In the meantime, I’m headed to the beautiful city of Pittsburgh on Sunday to run the 1/2 marathon. Who knows what I’ll bring home from there, but I’ll be sure to keep you posted!
Join in on the Fun!
