Making a List, Checking It Twice

I'm leaving tomorrow for the Philly half marathon and I'm partially packed.  So as not to have a repeat of last time, I'm making myself a checklist:

  • race outfit
    • hat
    • tank
    • favorite sports bra
    • arm warmers
    • tights
    • favorite socks
    • sneakers
  • throwaway gloves
  • throwaway layer (2 options)
  • sweats for before and after
  • bag to check at race
  • water bottle
  • iPod and charger
  • GU Chomps
  • Body Glide
  • race day breakfast
  • Gatorade/nuun
  • hotel/train/expo info printouts
  • camera (battery charged)
  • Garmin and charger
  • PJs
  • post-race outfit
  • Toiletries/hair brush
  • Blackberries/iPad & chargers

Ok, guys, can anyone think of anything I'm missing?  What else do you pack for out of town races?
