There are times when I leave the house lighter than usual, but it doesn’t make me feel very comfortable. The question of “What do you bring with you when you go running ” is something I get asked lots, so I thought I’d share with you the whatnots and whys!
-Cell Phone. once in a while, I’ll leave the house without my cell-but 6/7 runs it’s with me either for music, or off in my camelbak so I can pull it out if I need it. I don’t really like leaving home without my phone. It makes me nervous. There are lots of things that could go wrong
I might need the bathroom and I like to be prepared like those Boy Scouts say we should be!!
-Gu even if it’s just a quick 7 miler-I bring one with me. Or a few starbursts. There are times when you just start to bonk from a lack of food, and it’s good to have in a 911 situation.
-Money! I am so thankful I always carry a $5 or a $10 on me-you never know when thirst will strike and I don’t carry my camelbak every day so this is great idea. Some places have a $10 minimum that you have to spend on a debit card, so I always carry cash too!
Um, Sidenote? I hate the places that have minimums!! They drive me nuts!!!
-Debit card It has my name on it (which is good
Because if I am in mortal peril/kidnapped then it’s pretty easy to track me down. Sorry, that’s morbid but “be prepared!”) and if I’m at a store that doesn’t have a limit, I will swipe my card instead so I can save the $$ for when I need it.
-House key. you know, so I can get in the house after?
Where do i keep it all? I either wear my fuel belt
fanny pack, flip belt, carry my “pocket” on my hand, or stick it in the pockets if I’m wearing my skirt:) Easy peasy and I feel nice and safe carrying all that stuff.
Now for the absolute randomness you All love so much.
This week I discovered the most amazing thing in the grocery store. OH, by the by….fall things—-food/cocktails/pies…..they are my favorite.
Sooooo…..in case you are wondering…THIS is so good….I nearly licked the inside of the container. I’m going back tomorrow to stock up Even MORE.
But they still had my other #1….
How ironic that my liquor cabinet seems to be filled with my two favorites…. The melon and the fall yummynesss….
My SIL sent me this. She says this is she and I…she kills me with the laughter…
YESYESYES X 1,000,000,000,000.
And this is how I refuel after a long run… #doinitright (I had to do my long run today, more on that later)
ONLY ONE MORE DAY UNTIL FRIDAY!!!!!
What do you Absolutely have to bring with you running?
Do you love ll things fall??
Yes. Beer. Food. Cocktails. Running. Sweaters but not coats. Boots, but not yet needing to wear layers, short sleeves and shorts but not yet needing pants….I love it all.
