#RnRSEA Week - Packing List

Posted Jun 20 2012 7:47pm
#RnRSEA Week continues and today I'm all about perfecting my packing list.  The Hubs and I are leaving on Friday morning so tomorrow during the day I am going to try and get all of my stuff packed and ready for Seattle.  This will be the first time I am travelling specifically for a big race so I want to make sure I don't forget anything.

Here's what's on my list so far...

Race Day Outfit:
  • Running shoes
  • Wright socks
  • Underwear
  • Lululemon running skirt (a racing staple now)
  • Running bra
  • Tank top
  • Throwaway top to stay warm with
  • Running hat
  • Running gloves (will depend on weather)
Race Day Gear:
  • Paceband and Glad sticky wrap to "laminate" it in case of rain
  • ID securely zippered into a pocket (for finish line beer)
  • Bodyglide
  • My shiny new Garmin
  • Fuel belt and water bottles
  • Extra pouch for chews
  • iPod
  • Sunglasses
  • Cell phone and charger
  • CEP compression socks for post-race
  • Gear check bag (haven't totally decided if I'm going to check anything yet...)
  • Sunscreen (wishful thinking...)
  • Piece of waxed paper to stash some extra Body Glide in
  • Few packs of Power Bar chews for race day
  • Clif bars for snacks and breakfast
  • Nuun
  • Bottles of water for in the hotel
  • Peanut butter sandwich for race day breakfast
  • Banana
  • Medications
  • My favourite plastic cup to drink out of in the hotel
Official Stuff:
  • Extra clothes for post-race
  • Jammies, toiletries, makeup etc.
  • Book (reading at bedtime relaxes me for a good sleep)
  • iPad so I can cruise the internet the night before the big day
  • Travelroller and balls for a bit of night-before massage
  • The Kona Cola Nuun from Cori at Read.Write.Run.Mom to give to Alanna at Love My Runners
I'm totally nervous about forgetting something important.  Can you think of anything else I should bring?  Any tips for doing race day in a hotel room?
