Happy Friday friends! In my running group, Friday is Flat Mama day! What’s a flat mama? It is a photo of the race day outfit you will be wearing that weekend. These have become increasingly popular among runners and all over insta of course. More than just showing off your cute outfit, Flat Mamas are a way to make sure you have everything you need for race day.
Easy Steps To A Race Day Flat Mama
Check the weather
Undoubtedly the most frustrating part of the flat mama! Ours seems to change every 5 minutes.
Build From The Bottom Up
I like to pick what I will be wearing on the bottom first and then match my tops accordingly. Depending on the temps, decide if you are wearing shorts, skirt, capri or tights. Include any under garments that you might wear under your bottoms.
Decide on long sleeve or short sleeve and match it up (naturally). Include your sports bra in your plan (so you know it’s not in the laundry).
The part that can be fun and festive depending on your race. Have holiday race? Add in a fun hat or socks or tutus!
-Running watch, phone
-Winter accessories include: gloves, hats, headbands, jackets, hand warmers.
-Warmer temperature accessories include: visors, hats, sun glasses, sunscreen
Choose your socks and place out your running shoes.
Using a fuel belt or race belt? Fill it with all your race day fuel and water bottles. Add in anything else you might need that day.
You are good to go! Do you like to do a Flat Mama for your races? Ever forgotten anything?
