|Some of my favourites!|
With all my clothes, I have completed my long runs in them. I know they are comfortable. It was kind of a joke - I know what I am going to wear! I have my favourite running shorts. My favourite running bra. And I probably won't wear a t-shirt, it makes it easier that way!
|What I plan on running in.|
I am not totally convinced on my shoes. I have another pair, exactly the same Saucony Kinvara 5 - but half a size larger than this pair. I will probably take those too, just incase I change my mind.
The final packing list:
- Lululemon Pink Shorts
- Lululemon Sports Bra
- Feetures Socks
- Saucony Kinvara 5 shoes (x2)
- Garmin Forerunner 210 GPS Watch
- Brooks Running Hat (I may only probably wear this if it decided to rain.. I haven't decided)
- Bib & Safety Pins (plus extra safety pins)
- Clif Gel - Vanilla Flavour
That is it for the race. Everything I have here I have tested in a long run or race before. I am not making the same mistake as last time, accidentally buying the wrong brand of gel that was disgusting and I couldn't get it down during the race. On the side note of gels, I will plan on having it at around mile 6, and have an extra gel that I may take with to have if needed at around mile 10-11 for that extra zing.
Now, I am always nervous that something will be wrong with one of the items I have. So I am probably going to pack an extra whole outfit, just incase! You can never be too sure!!
I am getting quite nervous. It is strange, to be nervous. I am not going out to 'win' (obviously!) but I am trying to do my best. I have actually put in a decent amount of training for this race, a lot more than usual. Hopefully it pays off!
