Virtual Run - Now With Bling!

Have you read all about the Tink in Training Virtual Run and still need a little convincing to sign up?

How does a bit of bling for your medal wall sound?

I want to keep the costs as low as possible but also want to offer a little something to people as a "medal".  Unfortunately, in all my research, I couldn't find a cost effective "real" medal option.  I think our choices are bit more limited here in Canada than for the virtual runs operating out of the US.  I didn't want a medal for each person to cut into the proceeds by $5 or more, because that's money that could go to Team in Training.

The solution?  Etsy, of course!  I found a relatively inexpensive option that should also be fairly cheap to ship (especially compared to a heavy medal).  I found these Tinker Bell themed "medals" on a shop called littleprincessbling.  What could be more appropriate than that?

These medals are currently available to the first 20 people to register, regardless of whether you are running the 5k or 10k (but only one per person, even if you run both).  I may order more in the future but cannot guarantee them beyond the first 20 registrants at this point.  (But remember no matter when you register, you will get entered into the draw for the amazing prizes!)

Update: I have decided to order enough bling for everyone once registration closes!

These are bottlecap necklaces.  They are not traditional medals but it is definitely something unique for your collection!  From the shop description:
...bottlecap necklaces, each with a cute Tinkerbell graphic and sparkly pink rhinestone to add a little bling. They are strung on light pink organza ribbon and cord necklaces that measure 17" and close with a lobster clasp. The graphic is covered with a water resistant epoxy dome. 

Each medal will come in its own bag, mounted on cardstock that says "Tink in Training Virtual Run".

There are currently seven people registered for the run so there are 13 medals up for grabs!  One of them could be yours!  Visit the main post to register today!
