At 1am Thursday morning/Wednesday night, I’ll be boarding my flight to Toronto. My Ragnar journey is nearly here and I can’t believe it’s so soon! (It’s also worth mentioning Thursday is my birthday).
Last night I finally gathered all of my Reebok running gear so I could pack and organize. Having traveled previously for a Ragnar, I opted to pack two carry ons – one for running gear (which I’m sharing with you) and a second with all the other stuff (which I have yet to pack).
Need a refresher on the team members? I introduced everyone last month.
Gear for (almost) all legs
Reebok Floatride shoes. I’ve been wearing these for the past month and was truly surprised by just how much I like them. They’re light and springy, and overall feel great.
The Floatride Run incorporates several key product features that aim to meet the elaborate and extended requirements for a premium performance running shoe:
1. Floatride Foam: Floatride Foam has a consistent cell structure that delivers the seamless integration of cushioning and responsiveness
2. Ultraknit Upper: A seam-free Ultraknit upper construction is engineered in zones to provide adaptive comfort that offers support and breathable flexibility
3. EVA Support Rim: Supportive foam rim centers and balances your foot throughout the gait cycle
You can find them at Reebok.ca and select Running Room locations, MSRP $180.
Sunglasses for those daytime legs. Orange, because Ragnar.
Hat for those daytime legs.
Knuckle lights for night hours.
Gear for in between legs
I strongly dislike sitting around in sweaty clothes, so I have a zip up from Ragnar Vegas, a Reebok pull over, and a fuzzy Reebok hoodie to keep warm in while waiting between legs.
I’ve packed my three outfits in baggies, but depending upon the weather, these are definitely subject to change. If you’re wondering when each of us are running, Cathy compiled an awesome post summarizing when/where you can hope to see us.
Leg 1 – 9:30am
I’m not sure exactly how warm it’ll be at 9:30am, but I’m hoping it’s warm enough for a tank top! I really love the run design on all of the tops.
Leg 2 – 8:00pm
This t-shirt is my absolute favourite! I don’t typically love t-shirts, but this is cut just right and is super flattering. I even received compliments on it during my run on Saturday.
Leg 3 – 4:00am
I suspect it won’t be overly warm at 4am, so will be pairing my half zip with with my cute crops and my reflective vest.
Everything has been packed in my Reebok duffel bag…which I need to label as not to get it mixed up with the six identical duffel bags in the van!
Also in the bag are flip-flops, extra pairs of underwear, and extra pair of shoes (just in case I step in a puddle with all the rain Toronto has been getting), a neck pillow, and a blanket.
Don’t worry, I still have lots more to pack including:
- bathing suit
- R8 roller
- deodorant wipes (awesome when flying with a carry on)
- extra contact lenses
- chargers for Polar M600 and iPhone
I really can’t believe I only have one more sleep in my own bed before I take off! It feels like ages ago when I was asked to be on the team, and now it’s very nearly here.It's almost time! See what Ange is packing for @RagnarRelay Niagara. #ragnarniagara Click To Tweet
We have some more fun stuff planned to share with you, so stay tuned to my Facebook page for a Facebook live video on Thursday evening to show off our van. It’s pretty freaking amazing, guys! I’ll also be sharing on Instagram stories, Instagram, and Facebook live during our 300km journey.
I’m already so excited to recap my Ragnar experience and it hasn’t even started yet!
