I now have this medal along with 2011 Tough Mudder and 2011 Warrior Dash up on my wall, literally right above where I'm sitting this very second. It's a proud thing to have medals or other souvenirs that acknowledge competitions you've participated in. I would truly encourage anyone to try amateur races of some sort if you have good cardiovascular endurance. I haven't won any of these but that's not stopping me from acting like I'm the #1 race winner/movie star. Jeez I even made a whole YouTube video about it!
