A highly decorated Christmas Tree

Keely Linn’s 2014 Christmas Tree of running medals.

Keely Linn, a Salem runner, created this masterpiece out of all the medals she earned in 2014. “28 half marathons, 4 marathons, 1 15K, 2 10Ks, 2 relays … ” and fun runs and training miles logged made for a very sparkly look back at her 2014 running.

Run Oregon thinks this is a great way to display your medals, ribbons and awards; and a great conversation starter at a holiday party. Best off all, during a busy season jammed with parties, gift exchanges and trips to the post office, it’s a reminder of all the good times, great races and time you spent doing something good for yourself this year.

Whether you have enough medals to make a new tree each year or are selecting your favorites from over a longer time frame, feel free to share your running-themed Christmas decorations on the Run Oregon facebook page or tag run_oregon on Instagram!

About Kelly Barten (1152 Articles)
I started the Run Oregon blog in February 2007, because I felt like running in Oregon and SW Washington deserved more positive coverage. I also wanted to level the playing field so that small, non-profit races could compete with big events; and to support LOCAL race organizers. I'm a Creighton Bluejay (undergrad) and an Oregon Duck (Sports Marketing MBA), and I live in Tigard with my husband and two kids. My "real job" is working for an incredibly awesome math textbook company doing marketing and production.
