These are the things I will pack and the things I will need!
1. ProCompression Valentine socks
The above is Jenn's order but one of those pink ones are mine! Can't wait!
2. QTee Tank
Have you heard of QTees? You can design the colors in the design of your choice! Fun right?
3. Spandits skirt
I decided to go with my trusty Spandits black skirt in the Abyss pattern.
4. OrangeMud VP2
If it is going to be 700 degrees, I need to be well hydrated and can't count on course support for all my hydration needs. So my awesome VP2 pack to the rescue - AGAIN!
5. Headsweats visor
I am probably going to wear the one pictured. I think it will go well with my pink and white theme! And now that I say that, I may go with the above pink skirt too. Hmm..this pattern is called Hyperspeed.
6. Skratch hydration & nutrition
And this is what I will eat.
7. Clif Organic sweet potato & sea salt
I couldn't find a picture of the sweet potato flavor so I am posting a picture of my second favorite - Banana Beet Ginger. YUM! Most people either love them or hate them. The % of haters seems to increase with the sweet potato but I love that stuff! They have new oatmeal flavors now too! Yes please!
8. Vega pre-Workout Energizer
I must have this 20 minutes before I run for a quick charge from the caffeine and some pure energy. I have a giveaway going on for it right now. Check it out!
9. Hoka One One
Obviously I need my shoes to run. But I really can't decide which ones! Should I run in the new favorite Cliftons (which I have never run in more than 15 miles) or the tried and tested Bondi 4's? This is the hardest decision!
10. My BRF and Coach Jenn
Writing this post, I realize I have never done a marathon without my Jenn. She was there with me in Phoenix. There with me for Revel. And now, she will be by my side for LA. She can run WAY faster than me but agrees to stay with me. Because she is a true friend! She knows I have been lacking in motivation and her dirty jokes at Mile 12 and singing at Mile 23 will get me thru!
Or 5 hours but who is counting!
Bonus mentions: SportShield, Moving Comfort Juno bra, Superfeet Green insoles, Garmin 620 and a GREAT attitude!
So there you have it. 10 things plus some bonuses I MUST have to make my LA Marathon race day successful. Please help me decide what to do about the shoes and the skirt! Bondi 4s or Cliftons? Black skirt or the Hyperspeed?
I am also linking up with Nicole for Fit & Fashionable Friday!
And Jill for Fitness, Health & Happiness Link-Up!
What do you think I am missing? Good to go? Will someone call in a favor and make the weather a beautiful 55 degrees? Please and thank you!
As always, I wish you Happy Feet,
