My Columbia Triathlon Finisher medal, which arrived in the mail some time over the weekend! It really is nice - it's highly polished silver metal and so it didn't scan very well, but it's quite attractive. And BIG.
I really was quite impressed with the organization of this triathlon - very high on my "recommended" list for people like me who enjoy a well-run event and are driven nuts by a disorganized event. Kudos to RD "Vigo" and all the volunteers!
Now I'm REALLY looking forward to getting that Eagleman medal! It's organized by the same folks, so it should be equally a high-quality event with medals that ROCK! (They don't call me "Medal Ho" for nothing). And as much as I like this medal, it's MUCH more fun to actually get it at the finish line and be able to wear it around. If I get that half Ironman medal in 2 weeks, it's entirely possible that it may not come off my neck for about a week.
