5k, 10k, Half Marathon, Marathon–are you a runner?

I remember the first time I ran a 5k and completed it without stopping, it was exhilarating!  I crossed the finish line, grabbed a few pieces of fruit and sat down to savor my accomplishment.

Last year, I ran a quarter marathon.  I completed it without stopping although prior to that day, I had never ran more than 4 miles.  I was ecstatic!

But unless you’re a top finisher, you sometimes have nothing to commemorate the experience except a t-shirt.  It was this thought process  that led me to come up with map inspired 5k, 10k, half marathon and marathon necklaces.

I love using domino tiles to make upcycled necklaces and I love the way these turned out.

These are so cool! Congratulations on the marathons. I enjoy working out daily but running has never been my favorite sport. Besides my weekly friday Anything goes linky, I am starting to host a monthly linky for Etsy shops on Pinterest. It will start tomorrow. Please stop on by for some free exposure.

I'm not really a runner - but I did do a 5k last year (dragging my daughter behind me). Needless to say, my time was sad! But I finished - and I have nothing to show for it!!

Love these - what a perfect way to mark such a grueling occasion (ok, maybe the 5k wasn't grueling)!

And I love seeing all your pretty pics of Rome - what a fabulous city and I can't wait to return!

Happy to be following!
