I’ve seen a lot of people proud of their race bibs by trawling through blogs. Some people have a cork board with bibs and medals hanging off it, some people blu-tack them to a wall as a kind of motivational thing, I even saw someone wallpaper her study in them! While I like keeping the old race bibs, they have usually just been stuffed somewhere out of sight for me to come upon during a particularly thorough ‘flat clean/re-jig’. And then I’m torn between nostalgia and wanting to throw them away (because, essentially, it’s just clutter).
And so – starting this year (technically May 2011, but whatever), I’ve started keeping race bibs in a handily sized photo album. The album is from Paperchase* (WARNING: EXTREME STATIONARY PORN!), and every bib I’ve had since I started has fit in it just fine. There is a range of colours, but I went for neon orange, because it was so cheerful.
Anyway, I quickly filmed myself flicking through for anyone bored enough to have a look. I like that I can just slip it onto one of my bookshelves. Neat and convenient! I’ll warn, I was listening to music and the sound seems really loud when I play the video back on my laptop!
So what do you guys do with your race bibs? Bin them? Stash them somewhere discreet? Display them with pride?
