A resource for runners who like to suffer.
I'm busy packing my bag and still a bit unsure of what i need for race day. I've seen a lot of video, read blogs but want to gauge opinions here. Here's my general clothing summary;
4am start - beanie, arm sleeves and gloves, t-shirt, shorts - Is that crazy or about right?
Daytime - shorts, shoes, a lot of sunscreen, hat and shades. (Over Hope Pass - rain jacket option)
Night time - long-sleeve T, jacket, training pants, beanie and gloves (going with a jacket and pants if I am crawling back in at a slow pace only)
Anyone LT veterans have an opinion on gators too for the course. I have never worn them for any trail running to date but have a pair on standby.
# shoes to wear? I'm thinking at least 3 changing after the river crossing asap
10 days to go! SE
That's pretty much exactly what I wore last year.
I would recommend only changing shoes once--in Twin Lakes inbound (you'll be done with water at that point). Changing more than that isn't necessary (unless for some other reason).
If we have normal weather, that's about right. I change some gear if its raining.
I don't wear gators. I think you see those more on newbies but vets don't mess.
Most everybody changes at TL inbound. Others are just for comfort or specific needs. I change shoes when I climb.
