Tonight I’m starting to pack for my trip to Disney and the Princess Half Marathon. I have an insanely long packing list (way too long for a 3 night trip) and I’m terrified I’m going to forget something I need for the race. So here is my packing list for the 5K and the Half…I’ll spare you all the other things:
- Black capris (5K) & black shorts (half)
- Pink (5K) & purple (half) UA tanks
- 2 sports bras
- 2 pairs of running undies
- 2 pairs of Balga socks
- Brooks running sneakers
- Short sleeve hoodie (5K)
- Long sleeve throw away (half)
- 2 Headbands
- Fuel belts (yes I have 2)
- Cliff bars
- Garmin with charger
- Wrist sweat bands
So what am I missing? Am I overlooking anything? My wonderful friend Amanda is going grocery shopping on Friday before I arrive to pick up some pre and post race food necessities, which I’m indebted to her for. So I think I have the nutrition aspect covered. But what else?!?
On a side note, my physical therapy is working wonders for my psoas tendonitis. After each session, the pain significantly decreases. So much so that today, I had very minimal pain and I was walking pretty normal. How exciting! I’m going again tomorrow for the last time before the race weekend and I’m hoping to be close to pain free. Now the race might set me back in my healing, but that’s ok with me as long as I finish. I’m willing to put in the healing time after the race. All I know is that my physical therapist Will is a miracle worker!!
So happy packing to all you Princesses out there and please share your packing tips below!
