The marathon is just 4 days from today! FOUR!! AHHHH! I can’t believe it. I really can’t believe it. I am so excited and so nervous at the same time.

At this point, I know I need to just trust my training, stop obsessively checking the weather forecast, and focus on the things that I can control, like my OUTFIT for race day. I’ve also received quite a few questions from readers about what I am wearing for the big day, so here is a rundown of my Boston Marathon race day outfit!

JUNK Headband – I get SO MANY questions about my headbands and these are them! They’re from JUNK, and I love them so much. I wear one for almost every workout I do. The one I am wearing for the marathon is their neon Pro Sport “Monarch” Flex-Tie headband, which is printed on technical jersey fabric that wicks moisture, dries quick, and stays put!

Oakley Overtime Sunglasses – I love these sunglasses so much that I own two pairs of them””one for workouts and one for daily use. They’re lightweight and stay put, so they’re great for running (I’ll CrossFit in them on occasion), but they’re also stylish, so I wear them ALL the time.

Stonyfield singlet – Yayyyyyy, Team Stonyfield! I am so excited and proud to represent the brand by wearing a Boston Marathon tank with their logo on it. I love the neon orange so much. You’ll see me coming from a mile away!

New Balance Comfy Comformer Sports Bra – I’ve mentioned this sports bra a few (hundred) times on CNC, and I’m still in love with it. It’s just the best sports bra for long distance running. It keeps everything in place with no chaffing. I actually own three now!

SPIbelt – I plan to use my SPIbelt for carrying my GU and iPhone (so I can listen to music, take pictures, and find Mal after the race), so it’s a must-have for marathon day.

PRO Compression leggings – I wore these leggings for a lot of my long runs during training, so I am sticking with them for the marathon. My PRO Compression leggings review.

Bombas socks – These are the best socks ever, and I’ve worn them for all of my training runs, so they will definitely be with me on marathon day. My Bombas review.

Brooks Glycerin 12 – I have SO MUCH LOVE for these sneakers!!! They’ve carried me for hundreds of miles during my training, and I know I can absolutely count on them for 26.2 miles!
