Counterclockwise from bottom left: racing clothes (Asics spandex, C9 tank, sports bra, and shorts), New Balance Minimus, extra clothes, sweats, non-race stuff (maps, GPS, etc.), Nathan handheld bottle (22 oz – a bit big, but I’m always thankful for the extra water when the time comes!), watch, 3 + 1 extra PowerBars for during the race (Strawberry and Oatmeal Raisin, in case you were wondering), BodyGlide, Gatorade (fruit punch), and my bag of post-race goodies (chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin cookies, Oreos, a Twix, a couple extra powerbars, and Nature Valley granola bars). Not shown: the PBJs I’ll be making tomorrow for afterwards (maybe during, we’ll see), a copy of TrailRunner, ibuprofen, TUMs, and the immense amount of water I’ve consumed this week.
T-32 hours until race!
peace love and running,
