Quick Fix - Timing Chip Magnets!

Cleaning up last weekend I found my shoe tags from a few past races - it's a little tag you put on your shoe that records your time when you cross the start line, and then at a few split points and the finish. "Memorial" shoe tags are a new thing, and I kept mine (because I keep everything), but you can't reuse them in other races. So what are you supposed to do with them??

My solution - magnets!

Isn't that an adorable birth announcement? Having crafty friends makes for good mail...

A little E6000, a super strong magnet, a "useless" race trinket... leads to a ridiculously happy runner!
