Hood to Coast is a few weeks away. What to bring?
Hood to Coast is a few weeks away. I’m making a list of what I need to bring with me. It’s never too early to plan. Plus I love making lists. Oh, and buying new gear.
Hood to Coast has a great recommended packing list here. I used their list and added/removed items to make my own list.
□ Three sets of running clothes
□ Running shoes – Hard to run without my running shoes!
□ Change of clothes for beach
□ Gloves for running – Just in case, but most likely won’t nee them.
□ Sandals – Bringing a pair of flip flops.
□ Glasses – Can’t run without my glasses. I will run the wrong way!
Sleeping bag/small pillow - Will just use a hoodie or rolled up clothes.
□ Toiletries (Deodorant, toothbrush/toothpaste, etc.)
□ Reusable water bottles – Have plenty to bring!
□ Reflective vest (for nighttime legs) – Recently bought the Amphipod Xinglet Flash LED
□ Plastic Bags/Ziploc bags for wet clothes
□ Handy Wipes, antibacterial
□ Extra Batteries for headlamp
□ Cell phone/charger
□ Petzl headlamp
□ Camera/charger - So my iPhone doesn’t die taking a bizillion pictures
□ GoPro Camera plus head mount and cables – It will be fun to document the journey!
□ Hoodie for the “cold” nights
□ Compression sleeves – A must for recovery.
□ Headphones to listen to tunes between legs
□ Backpack to hold all my stuff
□ Arm strap to hold iPhone while I run
Cytomax was generous to donate a lot of nutrition for the team. They are the best! Thank you Cytomax!
I’m sure stuff not on this list will make its way into my bag. Never fails.
