#RnRLV Week: Packing List

Posted Nov 29 2012 10:00am
Until this year I had never travelled for a race event before.  It's something I always wanted to do and it's turned out to be just as much fun as I thought it might be.  But, when you're staying in a hotel, you have to be so much better prepared because you're away from home and away from all those creature comforts that make up your typical pre-race routine.

In preparing for the Las Vegas half marathon, I'm busy doing all of that "thinking ahead" to make sure I have what I need for pre-race on Sunday afternoon and everything before and after.  Here's what I've got so far...

Odds and Ends:

  • Registration waiver and expo information
  • "Running Elvis" information for meetups and special corral information
  • iPad
  • Cell phone
  • Contigo travel mug (I'm addicted to drinking ice cold water out of these awesome travel mugs!)
Race Day/Outfit:
  • Running shoes
  • Elvis costume: skirt, shirt, cape, belt, glasses and socks
  • Sports bra
  • Fuel belt and bottles
  • iPod and charger
  • Garmin and charger
  • Pace band
  • Compression socks for recovery
  • Bodyglide
Food and Nutrition:
  • Sport beans
  • Gatorade powder
  • Bread and peanut butter
  • Granola
  • Raisins
  • Almonds
  • Granola bars
  • In Vegas especially, I find it tough to find small, healthy snacks that don't cost an arm and a leg so I like to bring that kind of stuff along with me
Other clothes and stuff:
  • Regular clothes
  • Going-out and dinner outfits
  • Sunglasses
  • Pyjamas
  • Makeup/toiletries
Hmm, I think those are the major things...anything big I'm forgetting?
