Marathon Packing List- What’s in your suitcase?

On Sunday, I’ll be hitting the streets of Chicago for marathon #4.  It’ll be the 3rd time I’ll be coming from an away rotation and have had to pack ahead of time for my weekend getaway of torture… er, running.  Since away rotations mean living out of a suitcase for a month, I set aside 2 suitcases, a marathon bag and a rotation bag.  Wondering what’s in my bag?

  1. Running shoes.  First think that went in and won’t be coming out.
  2. Running clothes: this includes DetermiNation clothes, running shorts, running spandex, running 3/4 length pants, long sleeved base layered shirts and a throwaway shirts. Let’s face it, it’s Chicago. In 2010, it was 93* at the finish. in other years, it was in the 40s-50s.
  3. Socks and undergarments
  4. Gloves and arm warmers  Let’s face it, it’s Chicago and the weather is bipolar
  5. Jeans and normal everyday clothes
  6. Confirmation book and a print out of the confirmation emails
  7. My DNation timeline of events
  8.  The Fuel belt and gels
  9. Body Glide
  10. Compression Socks and Calf Compression sleeves [let’s face it, I need variety]
  11. Foam Roller, travel version
  12. Deodorant and all the bathroom supplies
  13. If I could bring alcohol onto hospital housing, I would. That’s typically illegal though
  14. Extra strength tylenol for my post race aches and pains

What’s on your packing list?  Or, what am I forgetting?
