This weekend I spent some time getting my stuff organized and starting to pack for Marine Corp (I can’t believe how close it is!), so I thought I’d share with you one of my favorite ways to keep some of my race-day essentials organized!
Yes, this is a cosmetics bag.
No, my race day essentials most certainly do not consist of any makeup whatsoever.
Top Section: Body Glide, KT Tape, Garmin & Charger, Golf Ball (to roll my feet on)
Bottom Section: Tissues, Hair Elastics, Chap Stick, Safety Pins, Tylenol
Everything I could possible need for a race all happily organized in one place! Oh, and that top part flips over…and that’s where extra fuel lives!
My favorite thing about this particular
cosmetics race day essentials bag is that the clear middle section snaps out and can be used as a separate piece, which is perfect because I’ll detach that, fill it with what I need and throw it into my gear bag to be checked on race day!
This has also come in handy with all the back and forth traveling I do to Cape Cod over the summer or if I’m heading out of town for a weekend – I just keep it packed (with the exception of my Garmin!), grab it and I’m ready to go!
