Since I'm staying overnight thanks to a very early start time, it's time to start thinking about packing. Normally I'm world's most last minute packer...but when it comes to race day, I try to be extra diligent. After all, the last thing you want to deal with at 5 am on race day is a missing left sneaker or pair of shorts! Here are my race day must-haves...
1. Outfit. Depending on the weather, I might bring a few options. But since the low is already in the 60s for Brooklyn...there's no need for anything besides a tank and shorts. On training runs I'm not so particular about wearing an "outfit", but on race day I like to try and stay a bit coordinated (of course without sacrificing comfort!). After all, you never know if your pictures might actually come out!
