Before I go on long-runs, I mentally go through a quick checklist to make sure I don’t forget anything. It’s the difference between having an enjoyable long run or an torturous one.
Now let’s see….
- Wearing sunscreen so I don’t catch on fire? Check.
- Wearing bug spray? Check.
- Vaseline strategically applied to prevent chafing? Sorry, TMI… anyway, check.
- Got my keys? Check.
- Phone? Check.
- Sunglasses? Check.
- Brimmed hat so I don’t look like a walking stop light by the end of the run? Check.
Is there anything else I need to go on a proper long run?
