Do you know what this is???
If you guessed 20 years worth of Cleveland Marathon (Rite-Aid/Revco) race memorabilia, then you are a winner! This obviously is not my race memorabilia but it is my friend Joe’s. I met Joe at a race a couple years ago and I consistently see him at local Cleveland races and we occasionally meet up for long runs. I know he regularly runs the Cleveland Marathon races but I did not know he had saved it all. He admitted he is missing a 2005 bib but while digging this out he did find a race bag from 1999 that still had a cliff bar in it (let’s hope he didn’t eat it)
I save all my stuff and hope to have a collection like this one day. Sadly, my race medals are all in a box in my living room, my bibs are crumpled in a drawer somewhere and the shirts are everywhere. But I swear I have saved it all. I would dig it out and take a pic of my own but sitting on the couch eating swedish fish has my full attention.
Do you save your race bibs, shirts, etc? Do you do anything special with them?
