Let’s talk about the famed RACECATION! Traveling to a race, and using an extra day or two to explore the race city is something Stephen and I try to do a few times a year. We both love road trips and he doesn’t seem to mind playing race chauffeur and cheering section.
This year, Eagle Creek sent us packing cubes to review during our trips to Rock ‘n’ Roll races. Let me be the first to say, these are AMAZING. I have never used packing cubes before receiving these. I will never go on another trip without them. I love having all my clothes and travel items organized for quick use.
After I tried the 3 pieces from Eagle Creek and wondering how I made it this far in life without packing cubes, I jumped on Amazon and ordered many more cubes. I use these on long trips–4+weeks out west, short overnight trips, and for 4 day weekends like our recent trip to Savannah and Hilton Head. I use them for EVERY trip I take away from Tuscaloosa.
This shoe locker is best for post-race sweaty or muddy shoes. I can throw this in my suitcase, bag or car and not worry about getting everything wet or muddy. I can also wash these cubes and I do, often.
I use these smaller cubes for toiletries, race day items like hair ties, gels, gummies, chap stick, band aids, When I travel for races, I like to keep my race clothes in a different bag than “regular” clothes. (Let’s be honest….I wear workout clothes 90% of the time, but you know what I mean). I like to pack my race stuff and check off the packing list.. Yes, I’m that fearful of forgetting something. So I have race cubes and real clothes cubes. I don’t have to dig or waste a ton of zip-top bags that may or may not stay sealed.
With race season just ramping up and spring races on the horizon, I have a few more race vacations planned. I know packing will be a breeze with Eagle Creek!
