Reindeer Run Race Photo and Saving Memories

Just ordered this pic from the Reindeer Run - I was able to download the small version.

Today I was cleaning up my room and uncovered all the race numbers I have been saving. I really didn't start collecting them until last year - so I have all my race numbers from 2006 and 2007.

I also ordered race pictures from pretty much every race I have run.

Now what is the best thing to do with this stuff besides leaving them in a pile somewhere? I thought about putting them on the wall but it would fill a wall. So I figured I could put the race numbers with the appropriate picture in a photo album. I would save the wall for marathon stuff and significant events (my first 5K and my first half marathon). I looked at the scrapbook stuff but: a) I am not a scrapbooker and don't have the time to learn, b) the photo album stuff was cheaper.

Just lift up the page, stick in the stuff, and put the plastic back over it. A race number takes up an entire page. I can put pics and other stuff on the facing page.

As for all of the hardware I have collected....well, I will have to think of something creative. Right now they are hanging in a pile on the corner of a bookshelf.

Any ideas?

Hey Chris - I have a 1m by 1m noticeboard in my study and everything is getting piled on there. It's my "wonderwall" and it's quite a boost to have it there. There's a photo of it on Terry's site dedicated to race numbers etc. but I can't for the life of me remember what it's called.. it'll come back to me..

I really like your scrapbook idea! Or you could do what I did and devote the interior side of a closet door to posting up all of that stuff. It works and is not in anyone's way or view -- unless I want to show it off.

Great pic!

Mine are just collecting dust on a bookshelf too, but waiting to go to Kona some day where they'll probably be on a wall :-)

Terry's site is "Catch Me If You Can." Google it!
