I just want to be prepared. I also want to make sure I have some water with me. I have read about how important proper hydration is and have also read about races that do not have enough. I thought I could put my water bottle in there as well. Good idea?

Assuming your not kidding: You don't need GU and hard candy, etc. Your body will not be depleted of glycogen in a short race such as a 5K. Water and Gatorade on the course will work great for you.

Thanks. Should I just clip my cell phone to my running shorts?

i cant believe im going to dignify this with a response. but here goes: God have mercy upon your soul should you attach a fanny pack to you at any point during your warmup, race, or cool down for a 5k. if you have hydrated yourself well, theres absolutely no risk of dehydration in that short of a race unless its about 170 degrees outside.

I find bananas particularly helpful on runs. Stick one down your pants and you should be set.

i think what everyone is trying to say, is that only weekend warriors wear fanny packs. and given that this message board caters only to the elite, you should not ask a question such as this without expecting ridicule. now let me add mine. don't wear a fanny pack! you'll look like a tool. plus, weekend warriors (with all due respect) do just as i do when i go on vacation--overpack. you don't need all that shit. you don't need an ID. your number has your info on it, and you can even fill in the "in case of emergency" section on the back in case you die. as for the cell phone, i'm sure you're mom's not waiting by the phone for your race results (even if you go sub-15). car key goes either under your car somewhere, tied to your shoe, or in that little pocket on your shorts. your shirt to change in will be given to you after you finish, along with a bunch of other shit you don't need.

now that i think about it, this better be a joke. or maybe the joke's on me for responding.

Wow! I did not know that wearing a fanny pack was not a good idea. I just saw people with them and thought since other wore them I should as well.

I will put my key on a shoelace, I can't put it in that little pocket on my shorts since I run in my swimming shorts and they do not have a pocket.

I recommend that you only were your fanny pack to the club, when you go dancing. Chicks dig a guy with a neon colored fanny pack. The bigger the better. Maybe you could get one like the ultra runners use that has space for a water bottle on each side so you can hydrate on the dance floor.

I have to give it to you Packin Heat, this is one of the funnier posts I have seen. I do have to say that you must have way too much time on your hands to think of something like that which will make nearly every single competetive runner get angry. It is quite funny to read the replies from people who actually think you are serious.

I did not mean to get everyone upset over the fanny pack. I bought a "racing pack" from Target. It is basicaly a fanny pack with a logo of a runner on it. Inside it has little sections for all the stuff you would need on a long run/race like a 5k.

So I will not wear it at the race. Although now I am wondering if I should stop wearing it on my training runs around the neighborhood.

Is it ok to wear it on my training runs? I do NOT want to look dorky.

and you are hopping up and down like a freaking Momma kangaroo looking for her little Joey then ditch the fanny pack. What could you possible need during a 5K race that can't wait until your finished? I could see it if you had to carry medication or you were trying to cover your enormously fat ass. If that's the case do society a favor and write, "WIDE LOAD", on the back of it so you don't take out a school bus full of children or a Hyundai.

I personally never wear a fanny pack because I like to show off my really tight ass off to the females. I appreciate it when females do the same for me. It's a great topic of conversation to discuss over party favors at your next gathering.... try it!

I say wear the pack. You can carry all the stuff you need. Very helpful I use them and no one has ever said anything.
