Packing List for Half-Marathon

Tomorrow, I return to NJ so that I can fly out of Newark Thursday morning with my parents to Disney World for my half-marathon.

Here’s what I’m taking (running-related), and here are some things you might want to remember if you’re traveling out of town for a race.

  • Sneakers (most important, obviously)
  • Running pants
  • Shorts (just in case it miraculously warms up)
  • Singlet (I’m actually going to buy a Disney shirt there to wear, and I have letters to iron my name on the back!)
  • Sweatshirt (to wear before the start)
  • Socks
  • Sports bra
  • Big comfy sweats for relaxing in back at the room after the race
  • Running watch
  • iPod/iPhone
  • Running belt
  • Inhaler (I usually carry this at long races just in case, despite the fact my asthma hasn’t bothered me since I dropped the extra weight that was straining my lungs!)
  • Gels/energy jelly beans
  • Advil (Lindsay suggested taking one before I start the race and two halfway through)
  • A small bag for any stuff I want to stow at the start line
  • Luna bars
  • A camera!

If you’re checking a bag, don’t forget to keep your sneaks with you. Losing your sneaks before a race…well, that would just be bad.

  1. what are super asprins

    One thing I want to comment on is that weight loss program fast can be achieved by the suitable diet and exercise. Someone’s size not merely affects appearance, but also the quality of life. Self-esteem, depression, health risks, and physical capabilities are afflicted in weight gain. It is possible to just make everything right whilst still having a gain. Should this happen, a medical problem may be the root cause. While a lot food and not enough exercise are usually guilty, common medical conditions and trusted prescriptions could greatly add to size. Many thanks for your post here.
