About Beyond The Medal
I'm Ann-Marie and started Beyond The Medal in 2015. We're based in Brisbane, Queensland and have a range of Sterling silver and inspirational jewellery to reward running and triathlon goals or inspire you to reach your goals. We also deliver Australia-wide and hope to continue to expand our range. I took up running in 2012 and went from struggling to run a km to running my first full marathon 2 years later. I'm an example of "if I can do it...anyone can do it". I'm not a fast runner but I enjoy it and have been blessed to meet some amazing people and run in some amazing places.
The idea to start this business came to me in 2013 when I ran my first half marathon in Noosa, Queensland and there wasn't even a medal :-( What, no medal?...I had trained hard for this!
My best friend was sick of my whinging about it, so got me one. Cool, hey! I wore it all weekend.
But it made me start to think...it was such a big goal for me and others to achieve and yes you have the wonderful memories, but wouldn't it be great to have something you could keep and wear with pride. I sat on the idea for quite some time.
I don't know about you but you can hang that marathon, half marathon, 10km medal around your neck for only so long.
So in 2015 I launched Beyond The Medal
Our jewellery is a nice gift for yourself or a friend who has done something amazing. Cause lets face it, as runners and triathletes, we know the work you put into achieve your goals.
Thanks for stopping by.
Oh..here are some photos of just some of the awesome people that I have met over the last couple of years that have inspired me, encouraged me and I'm proud to call my friends.
