Checklist for Philadelphia

Today was a rest day for me. With only a few days left before we head to Philadelphia it is hard to keep my mind off the upcoming marathon.

Today I ended up putting together my list of things I will need for the weekend:

  • Running gear – not sure what the weather will be like yet so I’ll bring a long sleeve and a short sleeve shirt and decide what to wear for the race once I get to Philly
  • Body Glide
  • Clif bars to snack on
  • Protein powder
  • Gatorade
  • A kettle and a toaster for my 3:00 AM breakfast
  • Instant oatmeal, a bagel, peanut butter, a banana and orange juice for breakfast
  • My Blackberry so I have an alarm to wake me up for breakfast at 3:00 and again at 5:00 if I do get back to sleep after breakfast
What is on your checklist when you race out of town?
