The Ultimate Runner's Survival Kit

What’s in your runner’s survival kit? It’s a question I posed on my Instagram page last month. What do we need to survive our running journey? Is it coffee, or a running partner? Chapstick, or anti-chafing cream?

I’d love your input. What gets you through a tough run or a long training cycle? What’s your saving grace? Whether it’s big or small, literal or figurative, what keeps you running, even when the running gets tough?
