After I had been running for about a year, I had amassed a large collection of race bibs. I was trying to figure out what to do with them, when it occurred to me that they are the perfect scrapbooking item! I don’t have a lot of scrapbooking experience (this is only my second attempt), but I’ve been pleased with what I’ve put together so far.
I scoured the Internet and local craft stores for running-related papers and stickers; most of the stuff I bought was from scrapbook.com. While I try to order at least one professional photo after every race that offers it, I use the PostalPix app to order snapshots off my phone, and they do a decent job!
Most smaller races get one page each…
…while larger races can get two or more pages. (I took up four pages for Disney!)
In addition to my race bibs, it also holds things like my age group ribbon I won in the Barrel Fest 5 Miler!
One thing I still need to do is print out some labels with the race dates and my times. I’m happy with how it is coming along so far!
What do you do with your race paraphernalia?
