So many times, I’ve found myself scrambling around to get all of my race gear in order before heading out to participate in a race. It’s hard to think of everything you might need of course, so having a few basics along is a must. When we started doing Ragnar races a few years ago, I volunteered to set up our van first aid kit. Since then, I find it so helpful to just have a ready to go First Aid kit that I can take along in my race bag or leave in my car. That way, I am good to go with my own Post Race First Aid Kit for almost anything that might arise.
Last weekend, I was out of town for my Sprint Tri race and was so glad that I had this Post Race First Aid kit with me. My shoulder/bicep area was really sore from earlier in the week. I was not sure how I was possibly going to swim the next morning without being in pain. The BENGAY® Ultra Strength Cream was a life saver! I used my plastic bag filled with ice first then applied the BENGAY® Ultra Strength Cream. Right before bed, I also took two of the Motrin® liquid gels and hoped for the best.
I was feeling better in the morning but applied another coating of BENGAY® Ultra Strength Cream just in case. While it certainly won’t cure an actual injury, it did make my shoulder feel much better.
Post race I returned to our hotel and repeated the ice, BENGAY® Ultra Strength Cream and Motrin®. I am feeling much better today and with a few days of rest I should be back to myself and ready to take on my next adventure. #SootheYourSoreSpots
