Personalized Christmas Ornament

The exact distance of the marathon race is 26 miles and 385 yards or 42.195 kilometers which is the distance from the Battle of Marathon to Athens from which Greek Pheidippides ran to announce that the Persians had been defeated. In memory of this historic event of pure exertion, there are over 500 marathon races around the world, with this road race becoming an Olympic event in 1896. Marathon training is a long process and pushes your body to the limit requiring a lot of stamina for recreational athletes to keep running. The fastest time has been by a Kenyan runner and is 2 hours 3 minutes.
A very unique ornament and I was very happy with the quality and the care they took in shipping it!

11/9/2016 - "Every year, I think that your ornaments can’t get any better. They are always so perfect and just what I wanted!! Well, you did it again!! I ordered six of your personalized ornaments in October, to be used as Christmas gifts, and then Hurricane Matthew paid us a visit. Our area was hit pretty hard. I thought maybe I wouldn’t receive those ornaments. A week or so went by before the mail could begin again, due to the devastation. Guess what came in the mail? Yep! Your ornaments! I teared up when I saw them……they were so great and it gave me hope that, after awhile, things would get back to normal. Slowly, but surely, things are getting back to normal! Thank you, as always, for the wonderful ornaments. And thanks, too, for the way you pack them. For all the years I’ve ordered from you, there was never one bit of damage to the ornaments. I’ll be ordering again next year. Susan W."
