I spent the entire day today doing laundry! It took forever and I didn’t want to start packing until I had all my laundry done so it all took a while!
I wasn’t really planning on packing too much, I swear. I thought I would have half an empty bag to check but boy was I wrong!
I decided to dedicate one of my carry on bags solely to everything I would need for the race. Heaven forbid my luggage gets lost, at least I have my outfit and shoes and all the things I need to run with me.
I figured that was one of the most important things!
The small grey bag is my real carry on. It will have my computer, a book, some magazines and some snacks!
And the big guy in the back is the bag I will check. It’s hard to pack for cooler weather! Lots of planning goes into that process. I swear I tried to condense. 🙂
I usually don’t have a problem carrying on 2 bags plus my camera bag, but if anyone says anything I can just hand a bag to fiancé since he will only have a backpack! Yay!
Jackson is currently protesting our leaving. He knows something is up and he doesn’t like it, but I know he is very excited to spend the week with Auntie Kate and Uncle Noodles!
Now it’s time to finish a few last minute things and then it’s off to bed to get up bright and early for Chicago! I am so excited to just GET THERE already!
I’ll talk to you next from the Windy City!
How do you pack for races you have to travel too? Do you over pack like me? I always say its better to be safe than sorry and not wish you had packed something!
