Happy Tuesday! As runners, we don’t want to carry a lot of items with us on our run, but it’s definitely important to always run with a few key items. Some items I carry for safety, others for enjoyment and some for convenience.
This week’s Tuesday Topic: What items do you bring with you on your run? You can write about this topic, or feel free to post any running related blog post. Remember to Link-up with Kim and Zenaida and the bottom of this post!
For safety reasons, I always carry my cellphone with me. I always tell someone where I’m running and what my route will be (if running solo), but I always feel more confident bringing my phone along with me on my run. I also always run with my prescription sunglasses/glasses. I don’t wear contacts and since I like to be able to see clearly on my runs, this is non-negotiable, lol. Oh, and when I drive to a park to start my run, I obviously have to carry my car key with me as well.
For enjoyment I always carry my wireless headphones and iPod so that I can enjoy my music. I give a lot of credit to runners that don’t need music but I am not one of those people. I need the music to keep me motivated and to give me energy during a run. Also my lips are constantly dry during a run so I always bring chapstick. Does anyone else have this problem?
And what do I carry it everything in? I always run with my Spibelt. I love it because it tiny but can stretch easily to fit many items, including my phone. It also doesn’t bounce when I run. It’s the only running belt I found that stays in place.
Tell me: What items do you bring with you on your run?
