I don’t need to check my bag. I’ll just leave my stuff in the car which is a plus because any one who has run 5K or more knows that everything becomes extremely heavy when running. Sunglasses can feel like 5 pounds. A t- shirt-forget it.
This is a long run, so I packed a lunch because I’m not going for first place. I have 2 KIND bars, cheese sticks, two as well because I like Closure. Get it? Closure as in Mathematics because they’re both even #s?
Anyway, as I passed mile one, I heard from a distance, “You drop your cheese.” I’ve hit the wall before on a 26.2 race, and I never forgot that. I swore that I would never go through that again. One never knows, if the race will have enough volunteers, water posts or goodies throughout the course. Everyone was losing stuff throughout the race, it wasn’t just me and my cheese.
