For anyone who has a BMX scheduled at least one week from now. These are items I gathered for my BMX, they are all clean and ready to ship:

1. Two "Pit Pillows":

2. One heart-shaped pillow to cushion your chest while in the car.

3. Four unused "Pink Pockets": http://www.pink-pockets.com/

4. Two lanyards to hold drains around your neck while you shower.

5. Two clip-on pockets to hold drains (same purpose as the Pink Pockets).

I'll send them to anyone who needs them!
