Happy Global Running Day


Medal Blocks was founded based on creating displays for medals, with a focus on running & related events.  While we are far from that now with numerous coin displays & picture frames, we still encourage everybody to remember their past achievements and plan new ones.  Whether running, walking, rolling or anything else, we encourage all fitness related events.  So, today, if you can, go out and run in support of Global Running Day.  Happy Global Running Day!!!!
