This is the medal I got for completing the half marathon in Ottawa two weeks ago. I started the sketch in the morning and finished in the afternoon. The idea came from the highly prized prompt on the sketchbook challenge blog. I decided that when I run out of ideas, I am going to use the blog as a starting point.

The prompt was "highly prized". Time, friends, health - all things that I did not have a clue how to draw. But the medal represents some of these highly prized things - health, time to train, money to travel for the race, family to encourage me, friends to run with and so on.
