On November 7th I'm running the Women's Half Marathon in Tempe, Arizona. The turnout for this first time race is going to be large and I continue to run into women that are signed up. I signed up because it has the coolest medal and the inside can be worn as a necklace. How cool is that?
The race also advertises the ULTIMATE GOODY BAG.
An ultimate goody bag has to have more than just advertisements for future races and flyers for gyms. The trend has been less goody and more paper that gets tossed as soon as you take off your shoes after your race. Aquafor and chapsticks aren't even standard fare anymore. When I ran the PF Changs Rock n Roll a couple years ago they didn't even have anything cool in their goody bag. So that leads to my question. What would you want in an ultimate goody bag? For me, an ultimate goody bag would have a chain (for my new finishing medal necklace), running socks and chocolate. Oh, and having a technical T, rather than a cotton T shirt insures that I'll continue to wear the shirt for running and workouts and essentially help them advertise future races.
What kind of goodies would make it an ultimate goody bag for you?
