I keep seeing people freaking out because the BART system may be on strike which could cause a lot of race day transportation issues? I don't even know what that is, so I'll just ignore it and keep on. After all, Ignorance is Bliss, or so they say.
Anyways, I'm trying to avoid that for this trip. (No, I'm not taking the toaster!) My plan is to take a carry-on bag with all my race-day needs in it. This way if my other bag gets lost, at least i'll have my shoes and race essentials to complete my race.
Sure, I may have to wear the same outfit I wore on the plane from Tulsa to San Fran for the rest of the 4 day trip, but #RedHairDontCare.
Not really, I'm sure I could buy a few shirts and things at the expo or at a shop in San Fran. They sell clothes there don't they? Someone check on that for me and let me know. K! Thanks!
Ok so here's what I'm planning on taking with me by category for all you OCD people out there!
Shoes - Probably too many.
Shirts - at least 27. Too much?
Swim Suite/Flip Flops - maybe
Running Shorts/Capri pants
Running Socks or Compression Socks
Race Tank - Half Fanatics!
Hat or Visor - maybe
Body Glide or Vaseline
Race Day Nutrition
Water bottle - So I don't have to buy $45 in bottled water at the hotel
Nuun or Electrolyte Drink
Snacks for the plane
Foam Roller or Range Roller - Maybe if it fits - Probably won't
Magazines for Flight
Money - Cash and Credit Cards
Chargers - Cell phone charger, Garmin charger, iPod charger
Bag for Bag Check at the race
Trash bags for wet clothes or a rainy race/rain poncho
Printed Packet Pickup Email or Voucher
Pain Meds - Tylenol or Advil
Tummy Meds - Just in case!
Anti-nausea medicine for the flight - This Ginger gets real motion sick!
Hair Brush/Hair Ties
Flat Iron - this crazy ginger hair has a mind of it's own!
Hair Dryer - maybe
TO BE CONTINUED!
No, the chihuahua is not going to California with us.
