RUNNING INTO WINTER AT THE COMPLETE RUNNER
Although I must confess I do like Loose Women, Doctors, Countdown and Escape to the Country; and of course it was back in January when I last missed my daily run "fix".
This week with the dregs of Hurricane Katia still wreaking havoc from the west we declared an end to summer at both branches of the COMPLETE RUNNER and I was over at the Lancashire NELSON branch to help rearrange apparel as our suppliers like to call it , bringing up winter jackets, gilets, tights, longsleeves etc and putting out new lines coming in.
There is naturally a major emphasis on safe running in the dark with plenty of fluo yellow jackets on offer from the wind/shower resist FASTRAX at £30 through midprice from BROOKS (Nightlife) and NIKE up to GORE Windstopper options at over £100. But as an alternative there is the bright orange VIZI PRO range from SAUCONY.
As witnessed by the flash camera reflection throughout the whole of the mens offering shown here.
We brought in 2 great ranges from ASICS and SAUCONY for those who like to "feel the blues"
and for those who feel inspired dressing in what many of world's leading athletes wear there is the
intense green from ADIDAS. A range which includes a great value Gore Windstopper jackets in both intense green and black.
I'm hoping that we don't get as much snow and ice this winter as the last couple of years but it will be cold, it will be windy and it will be wet.
But we've no excuse not getting out and keeping up our running with some great gear
to keep us warm, dry and safe in the coming months.
Oh, don't forget your footwear....
