Mid-week Race Day Prep

I am all packed for the Stanley half marathon on Saturday. Well, not totally packed but 90%.

I am not a light packer. My bag is stuffed full. And this is just most of my running gear - shoes, clothes, ect. I will have a bag of snacks and other misc. clothes/jackets.

And there is a 100% chance I will unpack this bag and repack it again tomorrow and Friday.

One night away from home will involve 4 pairs of shoes. One pair I will travel to there in, one pair to run in, a back up running pair (I am undecided if I want to wear my crappy silver & black Nikes or Brooks Adrenalines.) and a pair to go home in. Along with all the potential gear I may need for the crappy weather (Snow and freezing temps forecasted for tonight. Rain for Saturday) gloves, towel, warm clothes for Redfish Lake post-run hypothermia fest, compression sleeves AND socks, toiletries, snacks for the way there and back and a post-race treat I picked up at the store yesterday. Charonge.

Hey, it is a screw top. I am moving up from the box wine that is occupying part of the fridge.

I can't wait to try it.  And I need something to look forward to besides being sore, cold, wet on a mountain slog attempt. It might be gross for all I know but at least it is 13%. Some fruity wines are 4 or 6 percent.

I also have some Nuun to look forward to also! Some of this is going to work with my tonight to help get my hydration on. I got sent this for my application for the HTC team. Such a nice gift for my hard (or the BF's) hard work on my video. So awesome and generous of Nuun.

What do you have to look forward to this weekend? Family BBQ's, running? What is your fave Nuun flavor? Are you a light or like me, a take everything including the kitchen sink type packer?

  1. Good luck this weekend!! I have a 10 mile race this weekend, but i am not really racing it, just pacing someone. I am REALLY excited because the finish line is the 50 yard line of soldier field - so much cheaper than buying bears tickets, haha. I love your exploding backpack - i pack just like you!

  2. I think we are similar packers :) I don't pack light either, and I usually do it several times!

  4. I'm usually a pretty efficient packer, but it's hard when you pack for a race! I never know what I want to wear, so I end up taking too much. Good luck this Saturday!
