With Goofy's Challenge only a few short days away (we are in the
single digits after all!), I decided it's time I make a packing list.
I haven't thought much about the race at all because it makes me
nervous and sick to my stomach. Not only have I not thought about the race as much as possible, I also have not planned my outfits for each race (totally NOT like me at all)!!
Guess I need to get on the ball with that one. We ARE T minus 8 days and counting after all. (OK now I'm really sick!!)
Goofy's Challenge poses a bit of a challenge for me - no pun intended. Not only am I flying to this race, I also have to pack DOUBLE of everything - two races, two of each necessary item.
I made a packing list to help myself out and decided to share it! If you’ve run Goofy’s Challenge before and have any tips, hints ideas, etc, please leave a comment! Also, if you think of something I missed on my list, leave it in a comment below.

• Race Shirts x 2 (long and short sleeve)
• Race Bottoms x 2

• Sweaty Bands x 2
• Hats x 2 (Ball Cap, Winter Hat, Winter Ear Muffs, etc)

I am praying it will not rain during either race. My IT band does not cooperate in the rain.
I hope I can fit everything I need plus "normal" clothes for the week in one suitcase! If not, I might have to borrow a corner of my
husband's luggage! :0)
Did I miss anything?
