A midst all my excitement about my half marathon this past weekend, I completely forgot to picture one item I received upon crossing the finish line.
My finisher’s coin.
I was not expecting to receive this coin along with my finisher’s medal, but was very much in love with the idea of it.
I have only ever received one other race coin, and wasn’t sure what the protocol [or if there was one at all] to receive a coin was.
The only other race in which I received a finishers coin was The Sawtooth Relay. And the Soldier Marathon & Half Marathon had a marathon relay option as well.
So I thought I would pose these questions to you all today to see if I could get some clarification.
Is the coin usually given out instead of a medal during a Relay race? Or in this case is it just an additional way to commemorate the race?
Just curious…as I now have small collection of race coins and have never really heard anyone talk about them before.
Have you ever received a race coin?
Tonight I will embark on my first real Army Wife get together. We are going to a meet and greet of J. Alabama’s class, and I will finally get to meet the two other army wives that are here from the group!
