Action 163 - Identify The Essentials.

The more I run long distances, the more I realize what I need and what I don't. And that means I can more easily prepare for the marathon and pack up my go-bag with no stress. I know what has to be in there.

Action 163 - Identify The Essentials.

  • My Garmin 305. It's still the single best way for me to stay on pace. I can glance down any time, see my speed, and adjust quickly to stay on target.

  • My iPod Shuffle. It's the small one, only 2 gigs of space, but that's plenty for hours and hours of music.

  • My Oakley sunglasses. Even on a cloudy day, the sunglasses keep the glare out of my eyes.

  • My Halo band. Sweat stays out of my eyes no matter how hot I get on the run.

  • Ibuprofen. I take one before I head out for my run, and I am pain free the entire time.

  • And post-race, I love the Energy Towel. Nothing makes me feel as cool, clean and refreshed as these little gems.
