Before this year, I ran only one race each year. Then I became good friends with people who run races all the time–and have even run a marathon and are planning on another! They got me into running races more frequently, and I’ve been looking for a way to store and display all the bibs I now have.
One of my friends has a special bib album, but it was more expensive than I wanted to spend. So I did what I do best and made my own.
My mom had made a family recipe book using a binder and sheet protectors, and that’s what I did for my race bib book. A quick swing by Staples, and I had a small binder (in my favorite color no less!) and some pages for less than $15!
I’ve taken pictures before, during, and after every race, and I knew I wanted to include some of them in the album. I placed an order at Walgreens Photo, since it’s quick, reasonably priced (especially with a coupon code), and there’s one around the corner from my apartment.
Then it was time to put it all together! I put the bibs on one side (with a sliver of the edges folded under so they fit in the sleeves), and pictures from the race on the other.
