Michael Phelps who?

To coincide with the end of the Olympics, I received MY medal in the mail–the ‘yay, you are a special snowflake like everyone else who did the half marathon’ one.

I’m pretty sure I’m going to wear it everywhere until someone asks me what Special Olympics event I won it in.

    You should fashion the ribbon into a military-style medallion and wear it as your badge of primary conquest.

      That is a fantastic idea. 😀

    Who the hell IS Michael Phelps? I heard the name in a commercial, and thought “who?!?”

      American powerhouse Olympian swimmer; he holds the record for most gold medals won in a single Olympics with 8 golds won in Beijing. I’m pretty sure he’s a robot.

      I think Michael Phelps is some kind of bird they found. They keep talking about its “wingspan.”

    Don’t poo-poo yourself–I don’t think I could run 13 miles. Did 6 once, but that was 18 years and 80 pounds ago.

      I’m just pretty sure that anybody who saw me muffin-topping around while wearing a medal would assume that 13 miles is a little out of my range. 😀

    This thread is useless without pictures.

    Does the medal have blinky lights on it? If not, accessorize!
