Single Serving Sports Detergent from Go Soap!: I’m working on a review for sports detergent for Cyclocross Magazine, and brands have been sending me samples. I have bottles too, but what I’m really loving for life on the road is these single serve packets from Go Soap. No chance of spills, no chance I forget the bottle, just sports wash when I need it. So into it!
Ortlieb Velocity Messenger Bag: Waterproof, hold everything, and comes ride-ready! It may not have a ton of pockets to organize stuff, but it’ll be coming with me everywhere from now on, considering how easy it made running errands in the rain today!
Flu Shot: Last year, I skipped getting a flu shot because I “didn’t have time.” Then, I got the flu. The first day of Nationals. There went my race, and work got a whole lot harder. I spent the week in absolute misery trying to work, and a solid week after that just crashed on the couch. This year, I took the 10 minutes to walk into a pharmacy and just get it. Most insurances cover it, and sure, I admit I’m a little ache-y from it today but you know what? Better some aches now than being wrecked right when I need to be on top of everything. I highly recommend this for anyone who travels a lot since we’re exposed to so many germs, and our systems are so constantly stressed.
