What Do You Bring Running & a Giveaway

I’m one of those people that’s always super prepared.  I have everything and then some with me.  That’s why I need such a gigantic purse.  My packing mantra is “I’d rather have it and not need it, than need it and not have it.

That being said, I need a lot of stuff when I go out for a run.  You never know when disaster might strike.  I have pared it down to the bare minimum, but these are my MUST HAVES for running:


My Polar F6
.  Of course I got a pink one.  I love it.  Right now, it does what I want and need, but I have my eyes on one of these babies:

Yes my friends, that would be the Garmin Forerunner 305.  (Hi family, my birthday is just 3 short months away!)

Lip balm.  I am SERIOUSLY addicted.  I don’t go ANYWHERE without at least 1.  Solomon thinks I should stop using lip balm.  I think he’s insane.

This guy.  I need music with me.  I like that it clips to my clothes.

I also like to have ID and/or my phone.  Just in case.  And some money for when I go on longer runs.  In the winter it’s not so bad to have all of this stuff, since my jacket has pockets, but in the summer, I wasn’t sure where it would all go.  Enter iFitness and their neoprene pouches.  These bad boys are water resistant, stretchy, and holds everything I need.  The best part is that I hardly even notice it’s there!  It stays put and you can’t even feel it, plus it doesn’t ride up at all.

There’s even a pocket inside to hold your ID.  I love this thing so much, I even use it on the treadmill.  Yup, I’m that cool girl.
