What I Take With Me

Today I decided to take a slow slog around the 'hood of mine. I was focusing on my form, landing on my forefoot, when I wasn't walking.

The air clearer then that it has been. I HAD to get outside and enjoy the nice weather.

I found a coupon for free free desert or app to Solid that I picked up on the ground. I also found an old condom, but I just kept trotting past that. Eww.

What do you carry with you when you do a long run? Do you just go out the door with nothing but water and maybe a gel, or do you have to carry everything possible with you?

In my Camelbak, I usually carry my swiss army knife, tear gas, gels & other energy sources, sunscreen, chapstick, Wet Ones, keys, cell phone and sometimes my ipod. Sometimes, if I am on the trails, I'll take a PB&J sandwich with me or napkins/TP. Or one of my long sleeved shirts fits perfect in one of the pockets if I expect it to be cool out.

What sort of things do you take with you on your long runs?
What was your workout today?


  1. Great items to take! Hmm, since my long runs don't exceed 5 miles right now, I have only made sure that I have water, gel bites and a towel. There are some other items that I want to get, but haven't gotten around to getting them. I should! :)

    1. Aw, the towel is a good idea. I usually throw mine over the back of my car seat, but I know there have been a few gross times I have forgotten one!

  2. Wow lots of stuff! I take a phone, pepper spray a gel if I'm going 12+ miles and water. Today I did 3 miles of hill repeats that felt oddly good. Knock wood!

Quarantines and Earthquakes

Hi. How are you and your loved ones doing? Everyone safe and healthy? I hope everyone is illness free and has plenty of TP. :-)

The Stay at Home order isn't really affecting me too much. We work from home anyways, so its actually making us work more. I enjoy my house and my bed and I even signed up for Amazon Prime so I can watch more then what is on Netflix. We can't go out to eat in restaurants and we can't thrift store shop. I know, I know #FirstWorldProblems But I am thankful that I am in a relationship where I enjoy being around the person I am in a relationship with.

I have been ordering a Doordash or 2 a week. Doordash is a good thing and yet a bad thing. I can scroll and scroll and think about food, and even order it. It caters to this Taurus a little too well. I enjoy being at home, I like to eat, and I can make sure I tip the driver and make sure the restaurants can keep the lights on. I like to think of it as good karma.

Plus I can order DoorDash instead of suff…
