What's in your Gym Bag - Marathon Edition

Oh goodness gracious! My very first Marathon is just right around the corner. So this week is all about prepping for the BIG DAY! And I am sure you are all wondering... What's a gal to wear to her Marathon debute?!

Here is what I have in mind. Here is my Outfit of the Day.

My Marathon Gym Bag?

The Race Day forecast is not looking so great...Right now they are calling for rain and cooler temperatures. Running 42.2 km is tough enough, so I don't want to add feeling cold and wet into the mix. My wardrobe choices are all about layering.

On my Body: Indigo Melange Arm Warmers, Big Run Long Sleeve Tee, and Oiselle Zip-Up
On my Head: I have a toque packed just in case, but I am planning to rock my Sparkly Soul Headband

I have also packed a whole bunch of water, gels, and fuel. Running this kind of distance means that snacks are necessary along the way. The last thing I need is to bonk or to DNF, so being prepared is key. I plan to refuel every 45 minutes to keep my energy levels high, and hopefully hit my goal time.

My bags are pack. And it is Race Kit pickup tomorrow. We are almost there friends!

Am I missing anything?!

Love Your Favourite Darwinian Fail,
