When Erin and I got married last year, we held a 10k/half marathon that morning for our runner friends. After the run we all came back to the house and ate caramel rolls. A tradition was born that we wanted to keep going this year. Last year we decided at the last minute to make some medals so we wrote with sharpie on some washers and attached some ribbon. It was a nice token but we wanted to do a little better this year. Here's how we made this years medals.

The way the course was set up was everyone runs the 10k route which finishes at the house before the half marathoners head out again to finish up their event. While we were out running, Steph set up our aid station with cold water, Jolly Ranchers, Watermelon, Salted Nut Rolls, Gummy bears, Endurolytes, and Poweraid.
