But when I cross the finish line, I accept the medal with pleasure.
And I am very dissapointed, if there is no medal. Some races (in South Africa) stopped handing out medals, and for me personally this makes it less attractive to run such a race.
Because I want to see my medal collection grow and it reminds me of all the races I did.
