Just as it says on the tin!
I chuck mine in the bin.
I put them in a tall vase on the shelf. Holds loads and all the different coloured ribbons make for a nice visual effect.
My marathon medals are in a little wooden display box that was a couple of quid from Ikea and my marathon numbers are framed on the wall with the times underneath.
Celebrate your achievements guys!
I've thrown some away - some are so naff! Others I've kept, but in the back of a drawer.
I've got the numbers from significant races stuck on my fridge.
finishers medals and place medals for minor races are all in a shoe box. Trophies are on a couple of high shelves in the lounge with regional, national and 2 international medals hanging off them.
I haven't raced for ages so they are looking down at me ............ frowning
I have my medals hanging from a rubber plant. I call it my tree of success. It does look rubbish though!
I like medals and always feel a little disappointed if I don’t get one after a race.
How can anyone not love medals?
I keep mine (all 75 of them, yes I do keep a count) round the neck of a large plush version of my alter ego. And I refuse to accept that it is in any way sad, so there.
my daugher use medals playing with hers barbies. Medals are not importan for me . Running to feel well and joking with my friends are important when i met them for ours training sessions . Mybe i prefer t-shirt that remember my the contest . I can use during my session training or my sons to go out with their friends , too.

You could even sell them on e-bay to fools who want to pertend they are fit?
Used to just stick then in a box drawer ect.. Now hang a few up on the bannist in my room to motivate me into geting my arse out of bed and get some training in.
Mr LB wants to get some sort of a display case made for his 5 world marathon major medals. We saw somewhere in the US that did them but shipping was more expensive than the actual case!
If anybody DOES know somewhere that does this, I'd be interested....
Other than that, they're all flung in a drawer.....
Mine used to hang off the sides of mirrors when home was a Batchelor pad...strangely enough seem to be on show in the bottom drawer in the bedroom now.
still have some trophies on show properly (well sort of) from when I was kid - just to show that at some point that I did manage to blag some.
Not many medals given out these days around these parts. Its all chamois leathers (sorry T-shirts) or lumps of cheese!!
