Look what I got in the mail today…!!!
And yes, this totally made my week.
My half marathon sticker!
I wonder why they don’t give these away at half marathon races. I had to send a self-addressed envelope to Marathon Israel, and they mailed me the sticker. Not a big deal, but I wish the process to get it was simpler.
If you must know what my husband said when he saw the sticker in the back of the car…
Husband: (annoyed) “Who put that sticker in the back of our car??”
Me: “I put it”
Husband: (still annoyed) “Why do you put a sticker of a past event that took place on January 21st (21.1)?”
Me: “Don’t worry, it’s January 21st 2015”.

Haha very funny comment by your husband. I can’t wait to get my half marathon sticker! I don’t have any bumper stickers on my car but that’s one sticker that I want to have!
That’s the only sticker I have on my car too, nothing like advertisements or anything like that. Saving space for a 42.2 (26.2) one day.
haha love it. This made me laugh.
I have ran halfs but don’t have one of those stickers. Maybe when I run a full I will get one.
It’ll be about a year (if not more) until I run a full, so definitely happy with this one in the meantime.
I am hoping maybe this fall for me now to run a full. I had to revisit my goals for this year due to an injury.
The next sticker is for february 42nd?..
As long as I get it one day… 🙂
Nice! I have my 26.2 sticker on my car! A friend of mine also thought they gave them out at marathons and kept asking for his after he finished his first – he quickly found out he had to go to a running store to buy one!
I wonder if they Marathon organization checked that I actually finished a half before they sent me the sticker…? Buying them at a store is definitely easier.
My original 13.1 magnet got washed right off my car at the car wash. So I had to get another one. 😉
Oh no! That’s surprising, they seem to stick so strong.
I know, right? Thankfully it was right before I ran Disney’s Wine and Dine so I was able to buy another at the expo there. 🙂
I don’t like stickers/magnets on the car as the paint below then won’t fade evenly with the rest of the paintwork, leaving a mark.
That’s what my husband said.. I’m sure he’s right.. And yet. 🙂
They totally should give these stickers away at races!
I have a “26.2” and a “70.3” sticker on my car. I get a lot of questions from random people on the 70.3 and usually get a post ice response when I explain that it’s for a half ironman. I can’t wait to replace both of them with a 140.6 sticker in a few months 🙂
If I had a 70.3 sticker I’d just sit there all day looking at it.. That is such an accomplishment.
Be proud! You’ve earned that sticker and the right to have it on your car! Awesome! My brother bought mine for me at the pre-race expo last week. My hubby doesn’t want it on the car either. Argh!
That’s nice that you can just buy them there. Oh I’m proud.. 🙂
Love it! I don’t like putting bumper stickers on my car because I know I’ll have to get a new car one day and I don’t want to lose my bumper sticker! I put them on my guitar case instead.
That’s too funny! I thought the same thing, but they actually sent me 2 stickers, so I’m covered for a while.
For some reason, non-runners find these stickers extremely obnoxious. I don’t have any, but then I’m so much worse writing a runners blog.
Whatever rocks our boats, right?
