I'm starting to lay out my clothes for the COLD run at Disney.
Here's what I'm taking for the run (TWO copies of nearly everything!)
2 pr running tights (also running shorts for Day 2 if the forecast remains at 65)
2 Coolmax sleeveless tops (for a bottom layer to strip to if I become hot)
2 medium-weight technical long-sleeved shirts (that may get tied around my waist if I get too hot)
1 throwaway long-sleeved cotton tshirt (probably for an extra layer for Day1 and/or to put in gear check to wear after the half marathon and before the 5K)
1 technical cycling vest (that I always use for running - lots of pockets, zipper opens at the bottom so I can open the whole front if I get too hot)
1 earband (pulls down around my neck when I'm too hot)
2 pairs throwaway cotton gloves
2 pairs Coolmax socks
2 pairs broken-in running shoes
2 industrial-sized garbage bags (heavyweight, worked great at NYCM for discreet peeing even out in the open)
2 full gel flasks
Waistpack with SPF 15 lip balm, eye drops, Tylenol, etc., already stowed
Sunblock (yes, Holly!)
I *did* get my teensy new digital camera back from repair, so that and my cell phone are re-charging as I type!
And yes, I'm packing the Goofy hat, although I doubt I'll bring it to the races.
I still have to print out my nametags and pace charts and laminate them with clear packing tape.
I don't think I'm going to bother bringing my laptop along, too much to carry - so I won't be able to post photos until late Monday night (January 9th). If you want, you can sign up online to get my official results before I do!
I get pretty hot once I'm running - the cold helps my performance quite a bit. If it's full sun on Sunday and 65, that will be pretty hot for me - I'll be stripping down to just the sleeveless Coolmax, probably. Unfortunately this is the weather where 10 degrees can make a huge difference in what I wear! A little hotter or a little colder and I can dress more appropriately from the start! I'll have to check the forecasts again carefully on TV the night before.
