Birthday and Packing

Today's my birthday, but I am busy preparing for my race. Tonight I have a short run, and then I'm going to have drinks with friends. Yay!!

In the mean time, I'll be packing like a crazy person. Everyone says running is awesome because all you need are some shoes and you're good to go. LIES! Just trying to remember everything I will need for the race has been a definite challenge. Here's what I've got so far (for race day):
  • Shoes
  • Socks
  • KT Tape
  • Compression Sleeves for my shins
  • Running outfit and sports bra
  • Throw away sweatshirt for the start
  • Pins (for my bib)
  • Garmin (and charger)
  • Body glide
  • Sunscreen
  • iFitness belt
  • Gear check bag packed with:
    • Change of clothes (I'm headed straight to the park after the race)
    • Perfume
    • Wipes so I don't totally gross everyone out with my sweat
    • Comfy Shoes
    • Cell Phone
    • Wallet
  • Road id
  • Deodorant
  • Headband
  • Fuel
  • Camera 
  • Inhaler
  • iPod and headphones
So tell me, what did I miss???
