Packing for a Jam-Packed Weekend

Le sigh. The Big Girl Panties Weekend is upon us and trying to get ready for an indoor half marathon + a night away + a 60-mile bike ride is a little dicey. There's a lot of stuff that you need for both sports, along with the stuff you need if you were going away for a leisurely weekend.  So here's a look at some of the stuff I'm taking.

For the Heatbreaker Indoor Half:
BondiBand headband, Fort2Base Race ambassador shirt, sports bra, running shorts from JCP, newer running shoes, fancy running socks and compression socks, fuel packets, gloves and ear warmer, water bottles and a snack for the ride up there. I need water bottles because there won't be throw-away cups since it's indoors. Headphones aren't allows and what's the point of a Garmin indoors?
For after the race, I brought all the things I'll need to shower at the ice skating rink, along with some comfy clothes.  I'll need to add my contact lenses, solution and tooth brush for my parent's house.
And for the Venus de Miles ride:
Tutus, obviously. Also, an air pump, a tire gauge, chain lube, water bottles, Gamin with the heart rate monitor and ANT+ stick, sunscreen and a new cycling jersey I bought off of Amazon this week. Super cute, right? Not pictured: My bike, helmet and cycling gloves are in the car, and my cycling shorts and shoes are at my mom's house after last weekend's ride. No need for fuel because there will be plenty on the course.

I also packed myself another outfit to drive home in on Sunday, so I hope I didn't forget anything!

74.1 miles this weekend or bust.
