My Race Travel Bag, 2019

I keep these kits pre-packed so I can easily add them to my overnight or plane bag. I use zip-lock bags, which are nice for visibility, but not the prettiest.

Overnight travel kit

  • Earplugs – Macks Ultra Soft Foam. Yes, you can find generic versions in drugstores, no, I don’t think they are the same. The foam in these is better. (I prefer foam, I don’t like that my hair gets caught in wax).
  • Eye mask – Tempur-Pedic The Sleep Mask was my all time favorite. But I lost it, so the one I’m using right now is a slightly cheaper version. And for quick overnights I’ll just use a generic thin one, the kind you get on international flights.
  • Face mask
  • Quick supplies – lint roller, pen, chapstick
  • Sentimental/grounding keepsakes – Necklace, rock, crystal
  • Generic Drugs just in case – Ibuprofen, Midol, Benadryl, extra Iron supplement⠀ ⠀

Long travel kit

  • Passport
  • Neck pillow – I bought one years ago at an airport shop in Germany I think. It does the job.
  • Alcohol wipes – for the planes and hotel surfaces, just a pack of wet wipes I bought at the airport
  • Body wipes – for bathroom shower after flight sleeps or on layovers.
  • Bamboo Travel Utensils – To-Go Ware Set. My mom re-gifted these to me years ago, and I’ve used them more than any recent purchase.
  • Universal travel adapter – The all-in-one feature is convenient. But the various configurations can sometimes be a bit finicky, as in they get pushed back into the device if I have to apply pressure when inserting into the outlet.
  • Charging cords – one universal and one for my iPhone and wall plug
  • External charger
  • Plane ear buds (just re-use a set I bought once on a flight)
