Running and Training Tips: Keep everything you need in a Running Tote!

Here’s a quick running and training tip: Keep everything you need for a daily training run in a tote! Or bag, box, crate, laundry hamper, what have you. This is a must-do for me, because otherwise, I waste so much time running around the house gathering everything before getting out the door.

It’s also a fantastic visual reminder of your racing goals if you hang it in a prominent place in your house. For me, that’s my office door so it’s always in sight.


Those of you who train after leaving the office or at a gym are already doing this, but it’s also good for when you’re going on vacation or away for the weekend. Keeping you essentials out of your suitcases will make everything easily accessible.

Before my injury, I’ve always kept everything in my tote but during those long months, I took everything out because it only reminded me of what I couldn’t do. But then I read a great post on the Fairytales and Fitness blog about keeping a running tote and decided that it was time to put this bad boy together.
