I don’t know about you, but I train more consistently and eat more healthfully when I am reminded of my goal races and triumphs. I post inspirational quotes and photos of trails I want to run on my fridge, since I spend a good part of my day opening that door. I pay attention to the magnets I collect, opting for ones that hold special meaning for me or my family.

It hit me like a ton of bricks the other day that my race medals would be perfect to turn in to magnets. All I would need was a little super glue, some magnets and my medals. Five minutes later, and I had perfect magnets for keeping me on point in my training and healthy eating.

Race medals
Small round magnets
Super glue
Scissors and/or pliers

Start by removing the ribbon. If the medal has a small ring to attach it to the ribbon, remove that ring as well. You may have to use pliers.

Coat the back of the magnet with a small layer of super glue.

Attach the magnet to the center of the magnet back. You may need to use two magnets on larger medals.

That’s it. You are done. Hang those puppies on your fridge with an inspirational quote, and your fridge has just become an inspiration.
