What do you do with your medals?

I did my first ever race - a 10 mile Westminster Women's Classic Virtual - and have a pretty pink medal now, but... what do you do with your medals? And do you keep your bibs? If so, what do you do with those?

    My medals are hanging on the wall in the office. I'm a show-off like that. My bibs are in a box in the closet.

    My medals are hanging on a corkboard by my laptop. I would like to eventually purchase an official medal holder. :)

    I don't race or compete but just wanted to say congrats on your first race ! maybe pin up on a wall? or find a nice picture frame??

    Pint it up ona wall, my brother has one wrapped around an award e hung up - a few of mien I used as bling for an old cute teddy bear Mother had given me for Valentine's day and it's just teh right size but a few I hang on the knobs for the windows especially useful if one of the mechanisms is broken...A useless knob to open windows make s a good medal holder! But I'd like to buy a medal holder soon.

    as for bibs...I keep them in a drawer in a box-like space inside the drawer itself. Have kept them for every single race! On the back i'll write down the name of event and the year (depending on the race that's not provided on the bib) under the event name/date I'll write my guide's name (I'm legally blind), my time, the weather, how I felt and that sorta thing but all one under the other so taht it's neat in a way and doesn't take up say 2 lines on the back of the bib

    I have a wall in my garage with all my bibs, medals, and awards hanging on it like a big collage. It keeps me motivated.

    well, having earned medals in track in high school and college (from various meets), i keep all my medals in my bottom drawer in boxes, and my bibs and another other memorabilia from those days either in my scrapbook, or if i got shirts they are in the closet and i wear them as workout shirts.

    Take a picture with them then store them. In fact my first few body building contest trophies, I chucked. Why? Because I know I achieved those and don't believe in living on my past efforts but what I'm doing now. Yeah, it's odd, but it works for me.

    Medals : I'm making a holder for mine - still looking for the perfect doorknobs to hang the medals from. Right now they're scattered around the house.

    Race bibs: I only keep the big special ones (special meaning or bigger races), the rest get thrown out.

    Shirts: I keep the good ones for workout shirts, donate the rest.
