Princess Packing Chaos
|February 19, 2013||Posted by Running at Disney under Miscellaneous, Princess Half Marathon Weekend|
It’s no secret that packing for race weekends stresses me out. Why? Well I like to have all the comforts of home while I’m away, so I always tend to over pack and then end up having to cut things out, which turns a simple task into a multi-day event. Yes, I know this is crazy, but it is my process.
I use the guest room as my “staging area” and it currently looks like this…
My running gear isn’t even included in this mess, so I think I’m already over extending myself! I was looking back at my packing list from last year’s Princess Half and my gear has definitely expanded. I now have post-race clothes to change into (I HATE being in sweaty clothes once you cool down!), a stretch strap, the Stick, KT Tape, blister band-aids, ankle braces (just in case!), Voltaren Gel, Body Glide, and I’m sure a few other things I’m forgetting. I think my list expands after every race because there is something “I wish I had” at the last race.
So I have 2 more days to finish this craziness and try to keep my bag under 50 lbs. This is a challenge considering my bag for Wine & Dine came in at 49.7 lbs!
Do you stress over packing or am I just crazy? (This is definitely a possibility…B would probably confirm that.) What are your MUST HAVES for race weekends in Walt Disney World?
