I had intended to buy some running gloves as my hands have been getting cold as the temperature has dropped recently so I was very pleased to find a matching hat and gloves combo. One of the reasons that I have so much running kit is that I do like things to match. So these will go particularly well with my blue kit (I may also 'need' to buy the pink set at some point)
But it didn't stop there. Oh no. Did you know that Adidas do a range of clothing specifically branded for the London Marathon? Neither did I. But they do. And it's perfect for winter training. So I am now the proud owner of these lovely items
.This long sleeved top which is a perfect base layer and has the Virgin London Marathon 2012 logo and holes for your thumbs so you can keep the rest of your hands warm if it's not cold enough for gloves.
And this fab reflective gilet, again with the logo which will keep me visible as I run around the streets of Limehouse during the dark mornings.
So now getting up to go running when it's cold and dark will be that tiny bit easier as I'll have a constant reminder on my clothes of why I'm out there training. Well, that's how I justified the purchases to myself anyway!!
