I love to organize. Just ask my husband.
I make piles and lists. Lots of lists. And as you know, I also collect some goodies in baskets.
A few weeks back, I shared some photos of a few of my favorite medals. Then, many of you were kind enough to share some photos of YOUR special medals.
Last month, I received an beautiful medal rack from Marcey at Sport Hooks. The five-hook rack is stunning, and made of a heavy medal, so I am absolutely loving how durable it is.
My new medal rack, freshly-installed by yours truly!
That’s right! I found our drill and used it for the first time – all by myself – to install the rack. It literally took about a minute. Easy peasy! The lengthy process for me was deciding where it would go. Once up, I decided to display some of my fave medals — the rest remain in ye ‘ole medal basket.
Part of what I love so much about this rack is the woman behind the design. Marcey is a runner like you and me — though she’s a marathon maniac, having run 86 marathons since 2000. Now that’s an incredible accomplishment! Let’s give Marcey a huge hand!
As she collected bling in the past decade, Marcey said she realized she needed a medal display that was both functional and stylish. Thus, Sport Hooks was born!
Sport Hooks by Heavy Medalz has been in business for seven years and offers 1-hook, 3-hook, 5-hook and 10-hook displays. Her designs transcend all sports — running, swimming, triathlons, gymnastics, dance, martial arts, softball, golf. The list goes on and on!

And click here to learn about the team sport medal rack choices.
And the company also makes some unique medal racks, specifically for IRONMAN triathletes and fans of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series, as well as runDisney fans! Others have inspirational quotes or distances.
All of her displays are quality and beautiful conversation-starters.
Here are a few of my faves:
Chasing Boston? Then this rack is for you!

Disclaimer: I received one Sport Hooks medal hanger for review. All words and opinions are my own. Giveaway prize donated by Sport Hooks.
Currently my medals are just hung from nails on the wall in our workout room. Not very creative. For 9 years we’ve been collecting medals between the two of us. I have GOT to find a better way to display them.
I hear ya Tanya! Mine were in a basket (actually, many still are). There are a lot of great racks on the Sport Hooks site. 🙂
Currently all our medals are hanging on nails in the wall in our workout room. We’ve been collecting them for 9 years now. We have GOT to find a better way to display them. This would be PERFECT. 🙂
haha, hi! You commented twice 🙂 xo
My medals are all in a pile on the blanket chest. Should probably dust them off today. 🙂
I love that they are out and displayed! How did the dusting go?
Right now mine hang on the intercom speaker in my room. It makes the speaker look more pretty! 😉
I love it! Yes, medals definitely make the speaker more appealing!
My medals are all over the place and I have been wanting a medal hanger to display them!
The giveaway came along at the perfect time then, right? Best wishes!
My medals are hanging on one of those plastic Command Hooks. You know I have to keep it classy here at the Nuthouse.
I think if I win, I will hang it in my kitchen or beside my front door, so that EVERYONE will see them, not just me.
If I don’t win, I may just start accessorizing with them on a daily basis. 🙂
I’d expect nothing less at the nut house!! I love it Suzan! 🙂
We think so too!
I don’t have any medals yet! I’ve only done 5k’s so far, but I’m signed up for a Disney race in February and having a place to hang it would be good motivation!
oooh, Which Disney race are you going to be running? the 10K or the half? (or both?) Disney knows how to make a stunning medal, so you will have a great first one!
I’m doing the 10k! Maybe the following year I’ll work my way up to the half 🙂 I can’t wait to see what the medal looks like!
Me too! The 10k is going to be something special since its the first year and all 🙂
I am displaying my whopping ONE race medal by laying it in my kitchen table. I’ll find a place eventually, I’m sure!
Front and center sounds perfect to me 🙂
Hahaha- How are you currently displaying your race medals? http://wp.me/p3a7YL-V9
They are all just hanging on a Home depot hook 😛
One hook for all of your medals? Are they feeling a bit crowded?
I hang mine on a rack, but happily the rack is FULL and I need a new one 🙂
Congratulations! That’s fantastic. And yes, you need another medal rack STAT!
All of my medals are hanging on a clothes hangar in my bedroom! I need an upgrade! 🙂
I never thought of using a clothing hanger. Very creative! But yes, I’d agree you need to display those bad boys with a bit more flair!
I haven’t gotten any medals yet; my first one will come in about three weeks at the Rochester Half Marathon. If I win a rack, my medals will definitely go there.
Three weeks Ben! You are going to be amazing! I can feel it — The first medal is always the best.
My medals are in a stack on my desk…pretty pathetic way to display them.
I was about the same until I got this pretty rack. In a basket, in a box. Best wishes on the giveaway!
Currently my medals are shoved in a drawer in one of those plastic organizers on wheels. TY for this blog; definitely need one of these and would make awesome present too.
You’re welcome! There are some great options on the Sport Hooks website! 1 hook up to 10 hook!
My medals are on a hanger but I have so many that I need another hanger!
Way to go!! Keep racking up those medals Mindy!
Currently make shadowboxes,but I’d like to hang some separate now that I am doing more.
Shadowboxes are so neat! What a great way to remember race day! Good luck on the giveaway 🙂
I currently have them hanging on a medal rack but my son’s medals are on a door handle. He needs this medal rack! He’s 9.
Oh yes! He totally needs a medal rack — and Sport Hooks has them for all sorts of sports such as soccer, baseball, basketball, even martial arts! What’s his sport(s)?
Lol! Right now mine are hanging on one of those expandable, accordion style coat racks right now! It was all I could find to do in a pinch until I buy (or win!) something new!
I hear ya! A friend of mine uses curtain rods. I actually thought it was a pretty genius idea! Not too pricey
I don’t have a way to display them, so thats a problem!
Well we must take care of that STAT! Best wishes on the giveaway, Laurel!
I actually have all of mine on a nail that used to hold a picture in my room. And that’s with bibs attached to them and my Mud Factor bandannas as well!
Cecil, I think you may need a new way to display your medals… or at least another hook! Good luck with the giveaway!
I would say that I do as well. Hopefully I win! Thanks for the giveaway.
I’m currently just displaying them in a corner really. These are super cute and I’ve always wanted one!
I bet you have some amazing medals too Hollie! I think you need one of these to show off your super stellar bling! Good luck love!
I really need something to display the medals I have. Right now they are just sitting on my dresser 🙁
Oh yes! It sounds like you need a display to show off your hard work! Good luck with the giveaway!
My medals are currently sitting on a desk top – they need a pretty place to hang, especially the new ones from Dumbo Double Dare!!!
Congratulations! runDisney medals are so beautiful, and I’m loving the new Dumbo medal! Well done! Sport Hooks has some great racks, even Disney themed ones! Best wishes on the giveaway!
I have a medal hanger that my friend made me and I love it but it’s reached max capacity!
What a lovely friend! Yes, it sounds like its time to expand. Best wishes on the giveaway!
I checked out Sport hooks at the Disneyland Expo, def need to pick one up.
YES! I hope to meet up with the Sport Hooks team at my next Disney expo! Fingers crossed for the giveaway! 🙂
I really need one of these! My medals are sadly packed in a box! Not the place for some of the accomplishments I’m most proud of.
Oh we must get those medals out if a box! Best of luck on the giveaway. You can come back daily for one more entry via a tweet!
My medals are on a single hook in my bedroom-it’s too full right now though so this would be much appreciated!
It sounds like you are in great need of a medal rack. good luck!
I actually don’t have any medals yet, but I’m planning on earning them! 🙂 I would LOVE one to be my extra motivation to earn one!
Here’s to your first medal… and medal rack!
Right now all of my medals are hung on the sides of my mirror in bedroom. I’ve been looking for a medal rack but just haven’t quite found that perfect one that is just “me”.
I totally understand. I loved this one because the message really “spoke” to me. It’s gotta be the right one for you 😉
All my medals are in my nightstand drawer. Need to get them on display!
Break those medals out John! You worked hard for them, now show them off!
I have a small medal hanger but since we are looking to buy a house, hubby won’t let me install it yet. But I need another one since I’ve gotten so many more medals this year! (and they’re all hanging around one trophy that’s about to tip over!)
(Side note: I liked the facebook pages from my running page, Once Upon a Run, not from my personal page which you have to use to log into rafflecopter)
I am wary about putting things on my walls too. Most of my rooms don’t have anything up because I don’t want them to look too busy.
But congrats on all the medals! Good luck on the giveaway!
currently, i make shadowboxes and hang it on another display rack. i love making the shadowboxes, but they do take up a lot of wall space!
Shadowboxes create that special memory. Good for you 🙂
Medals are currently in a shadowbox, I’m making collages from them but I’d rather just hang them from a rack!
Understandably! Here’s to hoping for a win with the giveaway! Someone has to win, right?
My medals are currently sad, wrapped up in a basket. They’d be much happier on a cute display rack! 🙂
I can hear them calling… Those medals want to be shown off! I can’t really talk, as mine were in a basket until recently too, and many still are. But yes- display them!
It ain’t pretty – they’re hanging off the shelves above my desk, anchored there by candles. One more and I’m gonna need a few more candles…
Well done for making it work! (And candles work well as anchors, great tip!) best wishes on the giveaway
I have my medals hanging off a framed picture of one of my races. It’s really looking messy right now, totally need some hooks
you totally do! They tidy up a messy medal collection! Best wishes with the giveaway!
Sadly, they are in a box with the ribbons wrapped around them 🙁
Ribbons are nice, but yes, we need to break those bad boys out and display them!
I got to see the Sport hooks for the first time at RNR VA Beach this past weekend. Very nice products!
yes indeedy! Did you see their RnR medal racks? They have a few designs 🙂
I just have them pinned up. Would love the RnR rack!!
Sport Hooks has a few RnR designs to choose from. Have you run a lot of RnR races?
No, but I’m running my first one in a few weeks and have signed up for two more. I’m a new runner and a musician so I think it will be my “signature” series 🙂
I only have one displayed and it’s at work, pinned to my cubicle wall.
I love that you show it off at the office! How fun! Which race?
Currently displaying my medals hanging shoddily from my dressing table mirror… looking forward to getting a Disney SportHooks for all of my magical Dopey miles!
Ohhhh, you’re doing Dopey? So awesome! Best of luck to you!
I have a small medal hangar already, but I now have so many awesome medals that they are hanging 3 and 4 deep and I cant see them! I would love to win a cool medal hangar
My medals are in a drawer. I need a hanger so I can remember which races I have run!
