We have a full team!!! Can you believe it?! Amorette & Meghan have both joined our team - as of yesterday! So welcome them, hug them, kiss them, and cheer very loudly when they run b/c they are saving us from running MORE than we are already crazy enough to volunteer to run. =) (PS: you may also want to hug, kiss, and cheer loudly for Erika who found both of these wonderful additions to our team!)
Now - onto the packing list. This was kindly forwarded from Ted - it's been used in years past. So if you want to add any other suggestions, go ahead. Our race is in just a few days - some of us leave Thursday. Ahh!!!
EACH van needs:
-6 reflective vests (7 in van 1)
-2 head lights
-2 tail lights
Each Van Captain will make sure we have the following things:
-Cooler with ice
- Water/sport drink/prefered beverage
-Vehicle GPS with ALL exchanges preprogrammed in
-Binder with up to date race bible
-First aid kit - instant cold packs, mole skin, tape, ace bandages, band aids, pain pills, etc.
-Phone number list
-2 Flashlights (other than the running head lights)
Ragnar recommends that each person pack (minimum):
o Warm coat
o Running jacket
o Sweat pants
o Two pairs of shorts
o Three shirts
o Change of underwear
o 3 or 4 pairs of socks
o Running shoes
o Comfortable shoes
o Any medications
I would say bring
-2 full sets of running clothes (in addition to the ones you will wear the first leg)
-Your running gear (Garmin, watch, etc.)
-Toothbrush (your call)
-Towels (at least 1)
-Off time clothes
-Off time shoes
-Cell phone charger
-Camera and charger
-Video camera and charger (if you've got it)
-Sleeping/Camping stuff (if you're deluded enough to think you'll sleep)
- eye mask and/or ear plugs?!
Ragnar recomends bringing fun stuff too:
o Blow horn
o Cow bells
o Rubber chickens
o Van decorations
o Noise makers
o Hula hoops
o Other Fun Stuff
-Each person is responsible for bringing their own snack food!
-Plan on stopping to eat during your off time.
-I also highly recommend topping off the gas tank while you're off.
-Please select one person from your van to pay for gas - and they can save the receipts and we will add it to the accounts payable spreadsheet
RUN. DRIVE. SLEEP? REPEAT.
