What I pack in my running bag

Do you run? Do you have that special bag that you pack all your running gear? I’ll share with you what I pack in my running bag and how important it is to me to take the right things on my run.The first thing I pack is my wallet, I don’t need my wallet for running, but I take some cash so I can stop to get a banana, a water, a sports drink and depending on how much motivation I need maybe even a coffee.

I also pack some GU energy gel (not the Octane one, it has to much caffeine for me and most of the time I am wound up enough from coffee ) I have a  GU gel and some water about 15 minutes before I run. I pack  a towel because I plan to work hard and at the end will need it to dry off from my extreme effort.  I pack an old race shirt  so I can change into it so that I am not all sweaty on the way home, those old shirts also help to remind me what I can accomplish when I have a plan and am laser focused.

A couple other things that you will  find in my running bag are  icy hot,  the armband holder for my phone,  my new Yurbuds sport earphones, they are awesome I like them because they don’t fall out of my ears while I am running.

Here are the 3 Things I never forget to pack:

  • The right Attitude, I don’t leave home without it.
  • Enthusiasm, for before, during and after my run
  • A sense of accomplishment,  I take it back with me and carry it around until my next run.

Oh yeah and one more thing,  sunglasses, I heard this in a song from the 1970’s:

“Let me put my sunglasses on.
That’s the law around here, you got to wear your sunglasses.
So you can feel cool.”

Have a great day!
