If you are reading this Friday morning, I am on my way to Chicago for the 40th running of the Chicago Marathon! I am so excited. Anyone else start packing like a week ahead haha?
On the plane, I am wearing the comfiest alo yoga high waisted moto leggings and hoodie with my Portland Gear hat. I brought these olive green Adidas Ultraboosts to wear while walking around to keep my feet happy.
I’m planning on bringing just one pair of my favorite jeans. I’ll wear them with the cutest henley (it has the perfect slouchy cut) and my favorite plaid shirt (Rails is my absolute favorite). Then for more causal sight seeing and/or flight home, a super soft hoodie from Athleta & perfect leggings from Lululemon. I’ll wear the Nike Zoom Fly (review here) on Saturday for my shake out, and Vaporfly 4% for race day (review here).
I always put my racing shoes and race kit in my backpack. Even though I am carrying on, sometimes the airline forces you to check if overhead space gets to full. So this way I won’t be separated from the non-negotiable items haha. I love packing cubes for keeping everything organized too!
What are your favorite things to bring for a race away from home?
