RK3DE – what’s in my suitcase

Rolex entries are officially in and I’ve got all of the Rolex feels right now. So this past weekend I decided I needed to do a post on what I’m packing. [Yes, I’ve already got my packing list for a weekend trip that is a month away. Please tell me I’m not the only one!]

The number one rule to remember when packing for Rolex is to pack for all four seasons. It was the one piece of advice I listened to last year, which really paid off!

the essentials

You won’t want to be without these essentials RK3DE weekend. Luckily, if you forget any of these I would pretty much guarantee you that they are for sale somewhere in Lexington (if not the Horse Park)

  • Sunscreen
  • Aloe [for when you forget reapply sunscreen]
  • Sunglasses
  • A hat
  • Lip balm 
  • Comfy Shoes [waterproof/resistant for sure-my Dubarry boots will be a perfect choice!]
  • Water or something else hydrating
  • Snacks
  • Backpack to carry everything around in

the outfits

In keeping with the idea that you may need to dress for a wide variety of weather, I like to pack a bunch of separates that go together so that I can grab the most appropriate outfit each morning. There is also so much more going on in Lexington than just the horse park–another post to come on that subject–so remember to pack some clothes to wear after you leave the horse park. Here’s what’s on my list:

  • Tank Top
  • A T-Shirt or two
  • Long Sleeve [My RK3DE Nike shirt to be exact]
  • Light Sweater or Cardigan
  • Vest
  • Mid-weight Jacket [I’ll probably grab my Patagonia Better Sweater Jacket]
  • A rain jacket
  • Many pairs of socks
  • 2 pairs of Jeans
  • Shorts
  • A nicer going out to dinner outfit
  • Workout outfit including sneakers [Okay people, you will be doing A LOT of walking this weekend–you may nor may not use this outfit. But for those of you running the Twilight 5K, don’t forget it!]
