When packing for a race, it is so important to take your time and be sure you don't forget anything!
This is actually a beach bag, but the two side pockets are perfect for my kicks, and I never have to worry that my shoes will get dirt on my clothes!
I always pack my running outfit first! The compression socks are for afterwards, we are pretty much just hosing me off and hopping in the car after the race, so I want to be prepared!
Next I pack my runner meds. You know the ones I mean! I have definitely suffered from runner's tummy more than once! I also pack vitamins, headache meds since weather can give me migraines, arnica gel for aches and pains, KT tape, suntan lotion, lip balm, and sunglasses.
I always pack iced tea mix and Pure Via in case I can't find what I want when we are out!
I guess I should pack regular clothes as well! It will be chillier there, so I am bringing a jacket....
The hotel has an indoor pool so I am packing a bathing suit, wrap, and bringing a book just in case we have some down time!
Now for my every day clothes! I have to represent my favorite running gear! Swirlgear!
I love my Swirlgear! Of course I am packing shorts, plus a pair of capris just in case it gets too cold!
I am sure I am forgetting a few things, which is why I pack early. I will remember them as the day goes by! I also pack makeup and essentials the morning I leave.
Did I forget anything?
