Over the past couple of months I have been training for a full marathon this is coming up in June!! This has meant running for long distances and on paths that have long stretches without bathrooms!! I have sadly become accustomed to the “facilitrees” when we aren’t near a bathroom.
Guess what? As a woman sometimes it is not always easy to be a runner! That time of the month when mother nature comes a calling, even the thought of running sucks! I know I have to suck it up and push through with my training schedule. Typically getting in a good work out helps me to feel more human during this time of the month as well!
I was so excited to see the new Playtex® Sport® combo packs, makes it the perfect way to build essentials pack. I love that I don’t have to grab two different packages, now both my needs are in one easy combo pack!! P Having the right protection is crucial when running and also when working out anywhere!! Your body moves so differently and while you are working out is not the time to find out you picked the wrong products!
On a recent run with my training buddy we were talking about how hard it is to fit all our needs into the typical running belts. Between our fuel for running, keys, hair tie holders and lip balm, there is not really much room left for tampons, liners or must haves for cleaning up!! I realized I could easily make up a bag and attach it to my running belt! Plus this is also perfect to throw in your gym bag as well.

Assembling DIY Running Essential Pack:
Start off by bagging two feminine wipes into a snack bag, tuck them in the corner of the bag and squeeze out the air.
In the next snack bag place in one tampon, one liner, one towelette, and the snack bag with the wipes in it.
Position to were the bag can go as flat as can be and zip shut while squeezing out the air.
Assemble as many of the little baggies as you want. I did all twenty with the box so i won’t have to assemble again for a while.
Place snack bags in your make up bag, I grabbed vinyl because its easy to clean and here in Washington it won’t absorb the rain while I am running making it easy to dry off.
Put the key chain ring on your makeup bag.
Attach your Carabiner to your running belt and attach the make up bag! I carry a Carabiner with knife blades and a flash light in case of emergencies while out on a run.
Use the snack bags as trash bags to pack it back out and not litter!
How do you push thru during that time of the month to stay active?
