Last month I ran my first 5K and I couldn't be more proud of myself, not only for how I performed, but how I prepared as well.
Here are 5 things I brought with me that really helped!
1. LA Fresh Female Hygiene Wipes
These are great for right after a run when you don't necessarily want to change clothes but you want to freshen up.
2. Chill Towel
My magical towel that makes me cooler instantly. This helps prevent any headaches I normally get when I run too hard and get too overheated!
3. LA Fresh Instant Body Soother
Sometimes my skin gets itchy from sweat and the 5k was no different thanks to the rain and sweat. This is perfect for a quick wipe down of my skin.
4. Shower Pill
The Shower Pill is an enormous wipe that helps you freshen up and is big enough to use on your whole body.
5. Go Sport ID Band
This is engraved with a motivating quote that I chose (What does not kill me makes me stronger) and on the back is my ICE (In Case of Emergency) which has my mom and dad's names and numbers. This is great for when you go on a run or hike by yourself but I always felt it would be important incase something were to happen during the face. I also changed out the band from my usual green to purple!
