OK, I will try and start some dicussion.
Besides clothing/hat/shoes, exactly what else will you carry with you when you run your next marathon?
Your toughness is made up of equal parts persistence and experience. You don't so much outrun your opponents as outlast and outsmart them, and the toughest opponent of all is the one inside your head." - Joe Henderson
I carry the gels and water in my running shorts that have a couple of built in fanny-pouches. I love these!
Hi Dave, What brand/model shorts have the built-in fanny pouches? That sounds interesting. Are they zippered? It would be nice to have a zippered pocket for my car key and/or other valuables. I'd prefer this over carrying a separate fanny pack. My favorite shorts are New Balance. They have regularly positioned front pockets that are fairly deep, but I always worry that stuff could still fall out of them since the pockets are not zippered.
Yes, mine shorts are by RaceReady. Hard to find (I got mine at a marathon expo). i am looking for anothe pair now!
