If you've been running for a while, chances are you're saving some of your goodies to remember your races. If not the actual race gear, then perhaps some of y'all collect certain things at expos like wine glasses, shot glasses, magnets, etc. I save my bibs and medals, maybe a heat sheet if they're being given out. Someone suggested using the heat sheets as a Christmas tree blanket if you have animals. My mom has a wonderful tree skirt that she stitched, but cats = claws, and even if they don't pick at it, our cats shed. A lot.
Since I have an office at work, I split my collections between work and home. The medals stay at home and work has the bibs, which have been talking points. We even had a state auditor in a couple years ago, saw my collection, and said she was running Princess that coming February. There's even a runner in the office suite next to mine, and he and I talk shop when we can.
The other collection I have, and am saving, are the race shirts. I wear some race shirts, but not all. Once I feel I have enough, I'll send them in to be made into a quilt. There's only one or two that I actually wear, and the rest sit in the dresser, waiting for the light of day. I'm very picky about my running gear, and I don't end up wearing race shirts to workout in. Weekend getups, yes, but no workouts.
