As a relatively new runner who considers every race a huge accomplishment (not too long ago running a mile was a huge accomplishment!) I love to document each of my race experiences and the blog has been such a great place to do that! But I still had race bibs, event programs and other things (keepsakes to me, trash to others!) that I really wanted to keep and wasn’t quite sure what to do with…until I found RACEDAY Books!
RACEDAY Books are runner specific scrapbooks for up to 10 races that have places to list your race statistics, put your race bib and other memorabilia and then 2 pages (for each race) for pictures! Each 10″ x 12″ book is wire bound and has an elastic closure to keep everything secure.
I love that I can organize all of my race keepsakes without really having to do all the work of scrapbooking! I was able to include all of my race bibs, event programs and final instruction sheets, park maps and tickets (since a lot of the races I do are at Disney!) and LOTS of photos!
(To all my runDisney friends – how great is this for all of those character photos!!)
These books are perfectly tailored to runners because RACEDAY founder Lauren Kapeluck is a runner herself, so she was able to utilize her degree in printing and packaging sciences (ummm, how cool a degree is that?!) and her love of running to develop the ideal race memory book!
As I was starting to put together this post to share this wonderful find with you I, on a whim, e-mailed Lauren and asked if she would be interested in spreading a little holiday cheer and give away a RACEDAY Book to a Live, Run, Grow reader (because come on, isn’t this the perfect holiday gift for any runner??)…and guess what?!? She said yes!
