Ragnar Relay Packing ListLists are LIFESAVERS – especially when it comes to travel. My mommy-brain is constantly functioning on overload so I rely heavily on lists to make sure I don’t leave anything – or anyone – behind.

I’m headed to Washington D.C. to run the Ragnar Relay Series in the Ultimate Mother Runner Show Down with the lovely ladies from AnotherMotherRunner.com. It’s packing time so I’ve compiled the Ultimate Ragnar Relay Packing List to make sure this Marathon TravelingMom will be at the start-line ready to go!
