Packing explosion!

It’s late, I’ve run out of time, I’m glad I packed last weekend! I just thought I’d explode my kit quickly so you can see what I packed for The Coastal Challenge in Costa Rica, flying tmr! Make sure you get the Jun/Jul15 issue of Trail Running magazine to see what I took, there were some items I never usually need on races, like a hammock, poles and sleeping mat, all in a waterproof bag, on my list.

Kit exploded! Amazingly it all fits into...

Close ups of kit – my fave bit that I can’t wait to do each eve is envelopes for each day full of motivation from my family, coach Rory Coleman, and friends.

Looking forward to receiving my surprise motivational post each day!
