Next week little man and I will be headed to Illinois for among other things a visit with my family. Unfortunately, my husband is unable to join us for this trip because of work. I am a very organized person, including when it comes to traveling, so as I have been working on our packing list I’ve made sure that these must-haves for traveling are included on my list.
Ever since I received the Eagle Creek Pack-It Sport Kit through my prior affiliation with Rock ‘n’ Blog, I have yet to pack my running shoes for a trip without first putting them into this bag. By using this packing bag, it has helped with keeping the sweat and stink from my running shoes away from everything else in my suitcase. One of the best things about this shoe bag is that it is machine washable, so once I’m home I’m able to throw the bag into the laundry with my dirty clothes so that it no longer smells post traveling.
To help keep my suitcase organized I have turned to the Shacke Packing Cubes. I ordered them prior to our big trip to Disney World back in the Spring and they proved to be incredibly helpful in keeping things organized, especially for a trip where we had lots of events and different types of clothing that we needed during our time away.
3. Running Fuel
No athlete wants to be away from home and trying to work out without having the fuel that their body is accustomed to. One of my go to source of fuel during my long runs is Clif Bloks. I recently ordered a new box so that I can replenish my supply and have enough to pack for our upcoming trip.
Now that so many airports have water fill stations after security, I never travel anymore without my CamelBak Eddy Water Bottle. Its so easy to become dehydrated when traveling, but by having my own water bottle with me that’s much less likely to happen. Unlike other water bottles that I’ve used in the past, the CamelBak bottles don’t leak on airplanes. Little man has a couple of his own, so I always make sure to pack a kids’ version of the CamelBak Eddy water bottle as well.
One of the keys to staying healthy while traveling is to maintain some of your usual routines while away from home. One of my go to products at home is doTERRA Grapefuit Essential Oil. Thankfully the 15 mL bottle is more than small enough to travel with and fits the TSA regulations for carrying liquids onto the plane.
