Running Paraphenalia

As I was getting ready to head out for my long run one morning this week, I had to chuckle about what I was putting into my pockets - and what that would look like to a non-trail runner:

4 small baggies with pre-measured amounts of white powder (Heed).
1 small baggie labeled "S" containing 4-5 capsules filled with an off white powder (S caps).
1 small baggie labeled "E" containing even more capsules, slightly larger than those in the "S" bag, also containing an off white powder (Endurolytes).
1 small baggie containing several yellowish small rock-like chunks dusted with a white powder (crystallized ginger).

Honest, Officer. I'm just going out for a long run through the woods. Really.

Trail/ultra running seems complicated!

Imagine if you said "long 40 mile run"... funny thought but so true.
