Essentials every runner should pack when going to a race


If you’re traveling for an errand, be sure to pack these essentials. In the video above, I explain why these are must-haves for your trip.

• Headphones like Beats Fit Pro or Jaybird Vista 2
• Coffee (I like these portable pourers)
• A snack for the plane
One Gallon Ziploc Bag
• Watch charger
• Toilet paper

And don’t forget these items, which can be easily replaced on the road:

• Allergy medications
• A physical book
• Safety pins
• Belt
• Nipple band
• Vaseline
• Lip balm
• Solar cream
• Hair ties
