Umstead Packing!

I'm packing right now, with the assistance of my cat. She's staring at the stove, waiting for another mouse to emerge. I'm forgetting things like, non-running underwear, packing way too many gels (Conversation goes like this: Me: "I'm packing 24 gels." Wayne: "You going to eat that many gels? Wow." Me: "Of course not. I'm going to eat 4, feel like if I eat another I'll vomit, and then stick to race food the rest of the time, and my mom's cookies."), worrying I don't have enough, pretty sure I have too much.

A rough packing list (borrowed from previous blog posts, and to remind you/me!):

  • 2 sports bras
  • 2 tank tops
  • 2 running skirts
  • 2 pairs of underwear
  • 3 pairs of socks
  • 2 sneakers (one is a half-size bigger, which will feel like heaven at mile 70!)
  • 2 thin long-sleeved shirt
  • 2 warmer running shirt
  • visor
  • 1 pair of gloves
  • baby wipes
  • body glide
  • packs of tissues (for when you gotta pee on the trail (Yeah, we get lazy and don't even move off the trail sometimes!) or a port-a-potty that of course, has no tp!)
  • foradil (asthma medicine)
  • albuertol (asthma medicine)
  • singulair (asthma medicine)
  • dulera (asthma medicine)
  • 22 gels (though I never eat this many, just in case!)
  • 12 sports chews (power gel strawberry blasts)
  • 1 sports beans
  • 30 endurolytes
  • gaiters
  • Hydration belt
  • 2 water bottles
  • 1 5-hour energy shot 
  • Energy chews (Caffeine in the for of gum!)
  • Ziploc bags
  • sunglasses
  • headlamps
  • extra batteries
  • Advil
  • Imodium & tums
  • mints (I like Mint-o-Green lifesavers)
  • 2 Drop Bags
To buy when I arrive:
Sunscreen, Coconut water

Can't wait to see my sister, run 100miles with some of the most amazing peeps I know!
