Tell us your must have accessories for your workouts.

Here's mine;

1) iPod.. Gotta have it
2) Headbands. I sweat. (But really, it's very sexy.. really!) These keep my eyes from feeling the stinging burn
3) Pedometer. I like to track distance on my hikes
4) Backpack with the built in water bladder. Great invention for hands free hiking
5) Cooler. Since my hikes are all day affairs I always pack low cal, healthy foods and Gatorade. Often I pre-make a protein shake for after a big hike too.

How about you?

I'm utilizing a travel make up bag as my run gear. It has in it:
- Polar RSX300 watch and chest link/band
- Armband for my phone, which I use for music
- Headphones!
- A wide cotton headband that I wrap around my hand to catch sweat before it hits my eyes

And, of course, we bring a bottle of cold water. I'm hoping to get a hydration pack when I start running outdoors more, but right now I'm just at the gym track, so I don't need as much.
