As most of you by now know, I have a passion for collecting. The beauty, the rarity and the history behind each item collected is my motivation.

 

When individuals visit my home office, one of the first things they see is my medal collection. These medals come in all shapes and sizes, but each has a common theme.

 

My personal goal is to collect eight or less each year. The most I ever collected was ten in one year. Don't get me wrong, I can collect more but it's nice to get them at a "good steady pace". This medal collection shows one facet of my life that provides me balance and focus.

 

I started my collection in 2005. Each medal in my collection is priceless. I will never sell or trade any piece in my collection. You can say they are a part of who I am.

 

These medals are not high dollar items, but there is monetary fee to get them. You really have to be physically and mentally prepared to seek them out. You just can't pick them up on a whim or slap a handful of dollars on the counter to purchase one.

 

When one is handed to you, it really is the greatest feeling in the world!

Have you run any half marathons in Hawaii? I used to run in 5 and 10K runs, but of lately have gotten a little, OK, a lot out of shape. I gotta get back in the groove. :) It seems the three things you love, I love too.
