I've never been someone who has hung onto medals or awards that I have attained. I think that mum has a box of school trophies and such lying somewhere at home, but today when I was cleaning out some of my closets I came across the medal below.
Not sure why I chose to keep it as it certainly isn't the biggest or most prestigious race that I've ever entered. In fact the 9KM that I completed that day in 2006 would just be merely a recovery run in my current fitness. It did however signify a time when I was still massively overweight and in need of drastic help to overcome my weight problems. It was the first step on my journey to current fitness.
A small 9KM and an even smaller medal on the road to a huge journey of change. One couldn't have existed without the other.
What small things mean the most to you?
