Commemorating life milestones is something we all do. From pictures or artwork to jewelry, we like to have memories of our greatest accomplishments in clear view. I have my college diploma framed somewhere. I have a bracelet my mom got me for my 30th birthday that I wear every day. And now I have this…
One of my proudest moments was crossing that finish line in under 4 hours and now I (and unfortunately Roomie too) get to be reminded of that cold and wet day regularly. This personalized marathon print was made for me by JHill Design. Based in Boston, Jennifer creates personalized marathon prints featuring your hard earned time from over 15+ races. She also makes city maps with a similar artistic geometric shape design that I’m also obsessed with.
Today I’m giving away one personalized marathon print.

Boston was my proudest race! I actually met you in the VIP tent before hand. I finished the Boston marathon in 4:59:19
That’s right! That was such a hard day to 26.2… I’m still glad it’s over 🙂
I think my proudest was my first marathon, which was NYC in 2013, but since I ran my second one faster, I guess it would make more sense to go with that one…. 🙂 Sugarloaf marathon (Maine) May 18th 2014 3:56:33

That’s actually really cool! I hope to someday say I ran Boston and hopefully frame it in a print like this.

I’ve only done 1 marathon and it was in Honolulu! I was slow, but steady and finished in 5:37 something. It was 8 years ago and I still need something to commemorate it.

Pittsburgh half in 1:50!
My proudest marathon was my first -- Portland, OR! I had trained so hard for it and felt great and ready until a week before when I came down with strep throat, but I still rain and finished -- in 4:32:22! I was training for a 4:10, but given the circumstances was super thrilled with my time and amazed at what I was able to accomplish. I’m hoping that the Chicago marathon this year will replace that memory!
Congrats Tracey! You won. Emailing you now 🙂
When it comes to halfs I’m still proudest of my first. It was the 2003 Garry Bjorklund Half in Duluth, MN (aka the Grandma’s Marathon Half). I was 19 and it remains my PR (2:26:23). While i’d love to beat that…and someday be sub 2:00, I’m still very proud that I tackled my first half on my own despite being unprepared and not knowing what I was getting into.
I just ran my last marathon in the open division 2 weeks ago and as of today I’m in the masters. I PR’d at the Pittsburgh Marathon with a 2:46:41. To celebrate my birthday I am running the Horse Cap Marathon in Lexington, KY tomorrow morning and then high tailing it to Cleveland for the marathon on Sunday. It’s going to be an EPIC weekend!
I have only run a half marathon but I think the race day prints would be perfect for ANY race. I ran my first race and half marathon was on April 4 in Springfield IL! So glad I have had that experience and I just signed up today to run my next race! 🙂

Mine would be my first! Colleyville TX 4 hrs 30 mins
I would like one for my Boston Marathon run this year -- not a PR (4:11) but a BEST experience running a marathon (it was my 11th!). I love these prints!!!
I ran the Rock N Roll DC marathon this year where it poured the entire 26.2 miles! Fortunately, the rain gave me motivation to run fast because I set a 45 minute PR and finished in 4:15:03!
The race I’m the mots proud of will surely be the 2015 NYC marathon… I got pick in the lottery! I started running about five years ago and in my mind, I hoped that one day, I would be running NYC. Well, 2015 is the year I’ll achieve that! Otherwise, my current favorite run of mine is the 2013 Montreal marathon. I PRed (it’s Not my PR anymore tough), but I was such in a happy place for all the race… And it started with rain and puddle of mudd! Good job for Boston. I’ll never run it because I will never be fast enough, but I so wish to break the four hours in NYC!
Mine would also be Boston this year, after such a hard winter to train in I was so happy to finish in 3:09 beating my last year’s time by 5 minutes!

Mine would be my first half marathon in Pennsylvania. I finished in 1:48:30 and was really happy even through I had been hoping for under 1:45. Thanks for the giveaway:)
Love this idea! If I were to be picked as the winner, I would get a print for my cousin, Anne, who finished her third Boston Marathon this past year. Her first time running was in 2013; unfortunately she didn’t get to finish because of the events of that day (but she and my aunt and uncle were luckily all safe).
Three weeks later she was walking just outside of Copley Square when a driver turned without seeing her. The driver ran her over, breaking her tibia and fibula in half and fracturing a bone in her spine. Have a titanium rod put in her leg and a “stylish” back brace on for 3 months didn’t deter her. After getting the all-clear to start training again that October, she set her sights on the 2014 Boston Marathon as her recovery goal, and she did it (as if recovering from the broken back and leg wasn’t bad enough, she spent the 2 months prior to the race on the other side of the world in Singapore and Australia for work, trained there, and returned home about 2 weeks before the marathon).
This year she ran as a part of the Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Marathon Team as a way to give back for all of the great care she received when she was injured.
Congrats to all finishers of half-marathons and marathons all over! 🙂
My proudest race WILL BE this Saturday. I’ll be running the Bayshore Marathon -- my 1st! -- up in Traverse City, Michigan. To help me keep my commitment to training and actually following through with running the race, I joined the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training group. I formally wasn’t at all familiar with blood cancer research or new anyone afflicted, but now I’ve found I do. Through raising money and awareness, I’ve made new running friends and felt that my running has actually affected an important cause. Very excited and honored to run my first marathon for this group!
I would choose the Marine Corps Marathon where I ran a PR and qualified or Boston!
