Post Oak Lodge 50K Medal (2012)

Here is the finisher’s medal from the 2012 Post Oak Lodge 50K that was held on February 25, 2012 in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Come on Post Oak!! This is one of the worst medals we’ve seen this year. It looks like someone put the paint-pen to a left over Christmas tree ornament (from 1987).

No intent to be mean but come on now!  This is a medal that only Fred G. Sanford would be proud of!

As Mother Marathon Mary would say, “It’s not the medal that is important, but the effort and desire to start and finish the race that is being honored.”

MMM Recommendation: Play off the Oak name and create a natural wood medal similar to Recover From the Holidays (photo HERE) or Flying Monkey (photo HERE).

[Yeah, I just made up MMM! But I like her…and she is right!]
