What do you carry with you on long runs?

Water, gels, condoms?

Lol! I did the sniff and grob today and the wind carried the contents down the front of my top. Further along I did several 'nose on sleeve' wipes too.

When I got back my white top was streaked with blood... I must have had a mini nose bleed so it was snot mixed with blood... thought I could taste something metallic!

Top's in soak, so hope it comes out

I used to take my phone with me even on short runs mainly due to running through chav area but now I just tell Mr CS my exact route and how long I expect to be. 

Short runs (less than an hour) I go empty handed  but anything over that I take a drink of very diluted squash with me (i get dry mouth & its not nice).   Obviously I take keys with me if necessary, probably not a good idea to leave the house unlocked when no-one is home or the car keys in the ignition.  Am doing my 1st HM early next year so will take my phone out with me when I start increasing my mileage just in case I need Mr CS to come get me as I just cant make it up that huge hill home.

Each to their own though, the world would be a boring place if we were all the same.

I can't do snot rockets to save my life - just end up with contents of my nose on my face instead. If its cold I run in cycling gloves which have in built towelling snot wipes ( true !! ). If its hot I use said tissues or top but don't find technical wicking fabric very absorbant.

and I  can't even bring myself to comment on maxpower ( north) 's comments on leaves / toilet paper.

Ika - wiping your arse on a leaf is a very liberating experience, the next time you need a pooh on a run why not give it a try.

"Water, gels, condoms?"

Do you plan on getting lucky when you run or something Silk?

Ika - no you wouldn't.........

Nothing usually but some times some wipes/tissue for those occasions when nature calls
