Yesterday morning, I arrived at my group’s morning run early enough to fit in one mile before meeting up with them and heading out. Good thing, too, because I discovered that the shirt I had chosen was just a tad too warm for the entire eight miles. And that was no problem, because I had another shirt option in my car at the ready. Why? Because I tend to have a bit of a traveling running store in my car!
I started thinking about all the things I carry in my car for “just in case” running situations. The list includes:
- An extra pair of throw-away gloves
- An extra shirt
- A towel
- A gel
- An energy bar
- A seat cover for driving home post-sweaty runs
I feel like a boy scout, prepared for anything. So far, I’ve only ever had to use the gloves, the shirt and the seat cover, but it feels good just to have those things there for “if or when” I might need them.
Anyone else do the same? What do you bring along for just in case?
And for extra credit–anyone know the book with a similar title to my post title today?
