Allied Medal Display Giveaway!

This is an exciting day here on my blog for a few reasons- the first off being it's Friday (yay!) and the second being that I am hosting my first giveaway! Read on for details.

A few weeks ago I ordered something shiny for Phil and I to hang in our living room. A custom medal display from Allied Medal Displays! We had our medals collecting dust on our book shelf and I wanted to find a way to proudly display them. Viola!


The display was easy for me Phil to mount (obviously I just stood there telling him to move it an inch to the left and then an inch back to the right) and that sucker is sturdy enough to hold all of our medals. Pretty fancy, huh?

So do you want one? Because you can have one! The kind folks over at Allied Medal Displays agreed to give one lucky reader of my blog a medal display of their choice. You have 4 different ways to enter the contest:
  1.  Leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite medal is and what race it is from!
  2. Head over to Allied Medal Displays Facebook fan page and "like" them and then leave a comment on this post letting me know you did that.
  3. Head over to my Facebook Fan Page and "like" it and then leave a comment on this post telling me you are a fan on Facebook.
  4. Repost a link to this contest on your blog/twitter/facebook page and leave a comment on this post letting me know.
Make sure for that each way you enter the contest, you leave a separate comment on this post! I will use a random number generator to pick the winner next Friday, June 24th at noon.
If you can't wait until next Friday for your awesome medal display, you can head over to Allied Medal Displays now and enter code LAURENSTRIBLOG at checkout for a discount.


 Thanks Allied Medal Displays! You guys rock!


For more chances to win an awesome dispay, my good blogger friend Erin is also hosting a medal display giveaway so head over to her contest and enter there, too!

Happy Friday!
(ps- I am not getting paid for this- I loved the product I ordered from Allied Medal Displays so much that I wanted to share the awesomeness with all of you!)

  1. Hmm...my favorite medal. Well, I don't really have that many running medals, but I do love to make fun of my Route 66 Half Marathon "spinner." It's ghetto-fabulous.

  11. I'm a fan of you on FB. I'm a fan of Allied Medal Displays on FB (they have some really great stuff!) and I shared the link on my FB :-)

    My favorite medal is the one I got in September 2010 for the Nations Triathlon- it has a Lincoln on it so it looks pretty fly. It was also my first Olympic Distance Triathlon and I did it under my goal time... so I was happy about that :-)

  15. My Broad Street Run medal! I’m not a runner and never thought I could run ten miles. When I crossed the finish line, I felt surge of pride that has yet to be match... I’ve never been prouder than finishing that 10 miler—not any tri, not graduating college, not even getting into law school has surpassed that feeling.

    (I liked everyone and am posting this to my twitter!) Thanks Lauren & Allied!

  16. You did the Spartan race? Its on my bucketlist of races

    I love my Allied hangar and need a new one.

    My favorite medals is from Tri for Joe, because it was my first time I ever poduimed at a race, taking 2nd and this year I won my division, my first top of the poduim finish. They are next to each other on the hanger

  21. I have a tie for my favorite medals:
    1) the 4.4 mile Chesapeake Bay swim that I just finished on June 12, 2011. I worked SO HARD for that swim and it was the hardest thing I've ever done.
    2) the Richmond 1/2 marathon in November 2010. My background is that I've never been able to run, however last year I successfully finished the Richmond marathon 17 minutes faster than I expected :-)

  23. The race that gave me the 'bug' was Ragnar Relay, DC last year. I love this medal because it was the first one I got that has a bottle opener integrated into the design. I have more now, but that will always be the first.

    Also linking this in my blog!

    My favorite medal is the one the gave for Big Sur this year... It's fired clay.
    I also like the medal given to finishers of an adventure race in the Nevada Desert outside of Vegas... It was a rock glued to a hanger in a ribbon. All finishers got one.
