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!

So it was very important to be meaningful and the quality was excellent the only thing I might have liked was to be able to choose where to put the and year. But it really didn't matter in the long run it was perfect. Dale Marzillo"

Last year my dear sister died and I wanted to do something special at this Christmas. My usual store did not offer what I was looking for, so I went on line and found your place. I am so happy with your ornaments. My family will be very touch by the "Ginny" ornament and the family ornament will be so special. I will definitely keep you in mind for all my future shopping. Love the suggestion of gifts throughout the year. Thank you, Mary"
