racing bibs and medals

With all the races we participate in, what do you do with your medals and bibs?  Do you display them somewhere?  Mine were piling up on my dresser (of all places!) until today.  I finally found my box of bibs and medals from the races prior to our move to California three years ago.  I've looked for this box in the past.  It was just one of those things you tuck away in a special (bigger) box and can never find again.  I'm sure you know how that goes.  Anyway, I now have them all together and I don't know what to do with them.  Ideas? 

*The Napa Valley Marathon is my favorite medal.  My Chicago Marathon medal has special meaning because although it was a terrible race, it was my first.  I keep that one in the side pocket of my purse.  It reminds me that I can achieve any goal I set for myself.

I have a bib book from gone for a run, and my medals are displayed at my parents house for now. ;)

check out allied medal hangers! http://www.alliedmedaldisplays.com/ They do great custom stuff too. I have two that I hang my medals on!

Wow, that's a beautiful medal.

I don't really know what to do with mine so they are just hanging from a coat rack - you can only see them when there's no coat on that hook.

I know some friends who post all of their bibs in their garage on a wall, with their times. It's a fun way to see and remember what you've accomplished.

Great ideas! I hadn't heard of these two websites so Thank You for posting them. I'm going to look into getting a book and some sort of wall hanger display for myself, too! :)
