So outside of my running clothes and shoes, what can’t I live without?

1. My GPS Watch
2. Body Glide
I chafe. Chafing hurts. Body Glide = no chafing. If I could dip myself into a vat of Body Glide, I would! I prefer Body Glide over vaseline as it’s less sticky.
3. Honey Stinger
Like the above photo shown, I looooove Honey Stingers – especially in Cherry Cola! I love having these on hand for long runs. It’s a great motivator too as I take one every 3K when doing long runs and they are sooo delicious, I look forward to every 3K!
4. My iPod
I need music or a podcast when I’m doing long solo runs. The only time I’m 100% okay with going without my iPod is in trails where it’s so beautiful, I don’t need anything to distract me from running. But road running? There’s only so much feet pounding and heavy breathing I can listen to until I go nuts. My old iPod nano recently broke (it was over 6 years old!) and I practically raced out to buy a new one from Apple.
