I plan to make my BFF a Swarovski milestone bracelet...I've seen them with the distance spelled out in beads "5K" "10K" "13.1" etc...buying one already made is expensive, especially when I can make my own So, question for you runners....say you've completed a half marathon, would you just want that on your bracelet or would you want it to say 5K 10k as well? I mean obviously you have run those distances if you've run a 13.1 so do they need to be on there or would 13.1 say it all? Guess maybe this is a silly question but I want to be sure I make it right....any opinions? I also plan to put a sterling silver runner girl on the bracelet as well TIA

I agree with Alethia. I would include them all!

I think it's fine either way I know when I used to race, my farthest accomplishment was always the most important to me (but that's just me ). I guess I would go by price! If it's not too much more to include them all, then that would be niec, but if it's a lot more expensive, then just putting 13.1 really does incorporate them all. Also, it might depend on what she usually runs now? Does she mostly just do half marathons? Or does she do more 5Ks and 10Ks and just a half marathon every now and then?

She runs them all pretty equally...really whatever race is going on she'll run it. This past weekend it was a 10K, a 5K before that....she's run the 1/2 marathon once or twice so far. I like the idea of putting them all on there, just want to make sure there will be room for a few crystals too. Thanks for your input ladies

I actually like it with just 13.1 but that is just my preference. I also like things very simple and for me the farthest distance is the biggest accomplishment. It is more a personal preference though. I am sure she will love whatever you do!

My dad and brother are runners and they have 13.1 and 26.2 stickers on their cars. Those distances/stickers in my mind really set apart a RUNNER from just someone who runs.... if that makes sense.
What a special idea for a present! Very cool!

I went ahead and purchased beads to include all the distances, if it looks too crowded or I prefer just the 13.1 I won't put the others on...they weren't very expensive...can't wait to get the materials here now I'll post a picture when I'm done with it!

Late to the party, but I agree that the farthest distance would mean the most. I can't wait to see a picture of it!

That is so cool. I just did a half marathon this last weekend and I wish i had thought of something like that to give as gifts to the girls i ran with. They got me a present but I just could not think of anything! I will remember that if we ever do a full marathon LOL.

Ooh I want to see the finished bracelet! I agree, I would love wearing the farthest distance. I love my 13.1 magnets on my car (especially my "13.1 because I'm only half crazy" )
