Preparations For This Weekend....

Today I'm getting ready for my AVON Walk for Breast Cancer this weekend in Chicago. We go to Rosemont today to check in and tonight my team, The RockStar Fans, will have our traditional dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe. I'm pretty excited. All morning I've been packing. I like to be prepared, or at least more prepared than I was last year. 40 miles in two days is a lot. Here's what I have so far:
  • 5 pairs of moisture wicking, anti-blister socks.
  • Dr. Scholl's Blister pads..... Just in case the socks don't work.
  • 3 pairs of shorts, t-shirts and yoga pants. I like variety and you never know what the weather will be like. I'm also including this:

The team jersey we had made last year.

  • Two kinds of sunscreen. One for my face and one for my body. I Will remember to put some on my ears this year. Last year they were burnt to a crisp.
  • My pink camera so that I can record the weekend for you all!
  • My new awesome Nike shoes (they're pink and white) that are super comfortable and I have broken in specifically for this event.
  • My lightweight rain jacket. Stupid Chicago weather forecasts rain for Sunday. I can't imagine I'll be pleasant if I have to walk 13 miles in the rain.
  • Two sports bra's, one of which is pink.
  • My flat iron. Just because I'm spending the weekend walking does not mean I can't be cute!

It will be like pink overload all weekend. This year's walk is especially important for me since my sister's doctor found a lump in her breast yesterday. We're all hoping that it's not cancer. I do NOT want to have to walk for her next year in addition to my friend Rachelle.

So tell me, do you have any suggested items for me to pack? Am I forgetting anything?
