In this picture you can see everything that took a 100 mile journey with me (the only thing I used from my fanny pack was about 8 pepto's, 2 immodium, 6 advils and my headlamp, which I really only needed the first portion of the first lap and then laps 6-8). The one item missing from this picture is my camera. My camera (an Olympus 1030SW waterproof camera) spent the first 62.5 miles with me as well as my last lap for a total trip of 75 miles.
I shared a bit of some stuff in my fanny pack with other runners but mostly they were small items such as toilet paper (that was a big hit!), advil, and pepto.
The item I am most depressed about taking the entire journey is my 2 marathon bars. Realistically I know there are adequate aid stations (every 5.5 or 7 miles there is a main aid station and about every 3 miles within these main aid stations, there is a small aid station with a cache of food). I also wonder why I carried my Ipod Shuffle 100 miles. I never put it on, nor was I ever quite alone enough to justify putting it on (I guess one could say I run 100 milers for the social scene:-). Finally my camera batteries were pretty heavy.
Granted I took alot of pictures so it was better to have too many batteries rather then run out and have to ration my pictures but alas it was a bummer that this weighty little item was never used.
In fact I just learned I took over 700 pictures throughout the race. I forgot mid-way through my race, I swapped camera's inadvertantly with Tristan. This means I have "camera 1" and "camera 2" pictures from this race. And of course this excludes the hundred or so pictures from before and after the race.
