Building The Wall of Memories
I can't believe it's been almost 6-months since the City of Trees Marathon. Now that all the training is over, I'm finally at a point where things are settling down and I'm looking back over that long and tiresome race with fond memories—though not quite so fond that I'm ready to sign up for a second marathon.
I was approached by Printcopia a little while ago about trying out one of their canvas prints. Of course I jumped at the chance, since I hadn't had a moment to get one of our marathon prints framed yet and knew it was going to be the center-point for the future "running wall" that will eventually hang somewhere in our house. I've saved all my race bibs and medals over the years, and plan on framing each alongside a photo from that race—each of which was run with my mom.
If you're interested in snagging a good deal on a canvas of your own, Printcopia is having a special deal (thru 3/9) right now for one 18x24 print for $34.99, plus free shipping.
This canvas print is the first piece of the running wall, and I look forward to add other pieces as time goes on (like these tiny printed polaroids!). I'd love to know—do you have a wall of memories in your home? A place for race numbers, trophies, things that hold a special place in your heart that signify an accomplishment you achieved?
Disclosure: While I did receive the canvas for free, I was not paid to write this post. I genuinely love and support this business and can't recommend their services enough.
