Gearing up!

My "official" training for my upcoming races starts this week.  We're registered to run the Rock 'n Roll Half Marathon relay labor day weekend in Virginia Beach and after that, we'll be in Disney for the Wine and Dine in early November.  In preparation for my upcoming training, I stocked up on some essentials...

Yes, I grabbed practically one of everything in the "snack" aisle at Dick's sporting goods.  I've only tried the caffeine-free gels in the past and I enjoyed the Watermelon sport beans (before a race, not during).  So I figured with all of these races coming up, I wanted to test a few different options so I grabbed some sport blocks, different flavor gels (and some with caffeine) and new flavors of the beans. And of course some Powerade...and then TJMaxx got the best of me and so I grabbed two new pairs of shorts and this wrist pouch thingie (far right) that may be helpful for storing stuff.

Here we go...
