Soup du Jour Vlog Hop: Iron Girl Essentials

Posted Sep 19 2013 8:02pm

soupdujour blogbutton Soup du Jour Vlog Hop: Iron Girl EssentialsI’ve spent months to physically prepare for Iron Girl Triathlon Clermont.  Now, it’s time to mentally prepare.  For me that means packing items that I will need for race day.  Obviously, for a triathlon, you need your bike, your helmet, goggles, but there are other essential items you need that you don’t want to forget.  In this week’s vlog, I share some of my essentials.

Triathlon checklist

  • Tri kit
  • Chip
  • Race bibs
  • Bike
  • Helmet
  • Flip-flops
  • Race bag
  • Swim cap
  • Goggles
  • Towel
  • Running shoes
  • Cycling shoes
  • Socks
  • I.D.
  • Cash
  • Gu
  • Garmin/Polar
  • Cell phone
  • Lip balm
  • Car keys
  • Change of clothes
  • Ibuprofen
  • Body glide
  • Sunblock
  • Water bottle
  • Post race snacks

Once you arrive in transition, rack your bike and lay out your items neatly to prepare for smooth transitions.  Some triathletes will also pack a bike pump or a patch kit, but at the bigger races like Iron Girl , you will find a Bike Tech on site to offer mechanical support for triathletes for free.

Many triathlons, like Iron Girl , will provide a swim cap for a seeded wave entry for the swim. Pack a swim cap for open water swims just in case.

Headphones and MP3 players are not permitted on the course, so be prepared to run and ride without music.

I hope this list helped you.  If you have any questions, leave a comment and I’ll try my best to answer it.  Good luck to all the Iron Girl Clermont ladies competing on September 29!  But whatever you do, don’t be this chick !
