Sunday night I attended a Women’s Fitness night at a running store, Body ‘N Sole, near Champaign, IL with my girlfriends Abby and Amy. We got some goodies and listened to a speech on cross training. I got this nice little Brooks make up bag, which got me thinking about packing some items to spruce up after a race or a group run.

What products do you keep with you to get ready or to clean up after a good sweat session?

Here’s what’s currently in my new bag:

Not pictured trial sized sunscreen and lotion. Thank goodness for expos, I use all the free samples in my running bag.

Last night was the Ride the Wave group run. I got to be the leader for the front and we did 4 Miles with Fartleks (speed play – picking up the pace for a set distance or land mark). I had a lot of fun hanging with our group, talking about up coming races and helping them sustain the pick ups. I’ve really enjoyed the RTW program and while it’s for the participants I find that I feel re-engergized by helping them. I’m looking forward to our upcoming workouts with hills and track work.

  1. I can only imagine want an awesome group leader you are! Your posts always seem to be so positive and happy. I’d love the chance to run with you.


    1. Thanks Steph! 😀 I would love to meet up and run sometime with you too! Hopefully we can either meet up at a race and get in a race weekend run or if you ever want to meet up in your area Rob and I are always happy to fly over and do a lunch/run day. 🙂


  2. wow … two blog mentions in one week. huzzah!! the only other thing i keep in my after-run bag is a change of shoes (adidas slides) because my feet *hurt* after all that pavement pounding 🙂


    1. Oh yeah you are famous now girlie! Hehhehe 🙂 I actually need to get some adidas slides. I meant to pick some up the last time I was at the store and forgot. They are way better for tires tootsies than flip flops.


  3. I find you a real inspiration! I love reading your blog, daily! I’m a Northeast Indiana runner and also do a lot of treadmill running. Just signed up for my 1st ever marathon (Chicago)!! Thanks for your posts! Tiffany
