My winter running bag essentials are part of a shop hosted by Collective Bias, Inc., and Pfizer. All opinions are mine alone. #HealthySavings #CollectiveBias
As the temperature drops, most people start to slack off on exercising and running. Call me crazy but I still run during the fall and winter months. We actually don’t cancel runs until the temperature hits 30 degrees. So staying healthy during this time of the year is a must to keep up with our running schedule. I can’t afford to let a pesky cold or joint pain slow me down. I’m lucky that I run with a dedicated group of women, so cold weather doesn’t bother us.
Now you know there is a mother hen in every group. You know that person who has a bag with everything who you need in it for whatever ails you. I’ve been that person since law school. I’ve always been the person that you can go to when you have a headache, cold, you’re sleepy, or whatever. I’m a walking medicine cabinet. LOL!
During this time of year, I have two bags. I have one bag with my goodies for others and I have another bag that I actually carry on me while I’m running. I recently headed to Walgreens to stock up while they have discounts on Pfizer products. All this month, you can save up to $15 dollars and you know I’m all about that. Let me show you what I’m currently toting around in my bags.
In my big bag, I have my Thermacare pads. I will be honest and say I have the ones for my back, but they somehow find their way to my knees if they are acting up. LOL Don’t judge me! I have packets of Emergen-C, a bottle of Advil. I normally take the Advil 30 minutes before I run.
As you can see, I have a little of everything…water, tissues, wipes. I’m telling you I’m a one-stop shop! LOL!
In my smaller bag, I only carry a bottle of water, my headlamp, GPS watch with a heart rate monitor, and my collection of ChapStick. Like seriously, I’m only showing one in the picture but I have several in my bag. Sigh
Don’t forget to stop up on items you need for the season at your local Walgreens. Here is where I found the display with all my running bag essentials.
What do you stock up on to stay healthy during the winter?
