My pre-run checklist

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….

Barefoot me

  • 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?

 

 

 

 

Nope.

    1. Good point! I do as well on my longer long runs. Also, I forgot to mention water! Mostly I wanted to have a long list that left off shoes, because I went on a long run barefoot and was feeling pretty good about it (though my feet complained a little the next day!)
