Um, more new gear..........

Friday, July 13, 2018

I seem to have gone a bit crazy lately - maybe it's just that I'm identifying more definitely with being a 'runner'?!

I just paid for my place in a December trail run of 11miles (17.5k) which is the longest run I've ever attempted (I mean, my gosh, it's almost a half-marathon - and it's a TRAIL run, which means a lot more strenuous than 11 miles on the flat).

So, um, I seem to have been buying gear. First the shorts, now some hot weather 'compression tights' and a 'heat-wave' racer-back vest top. Part of me thinks it's a waste of time getting stuff for hot weather, because our summers are usually over before they've started......... but, well, it has been hot recently, and those shorts were lovely and cool the other day.

I'm going to Parkrun tomorrow (regular Saturday morning 5k) and am going to wear the shorts with the new racer-back vest. It feels like being almost naked - certainly very much close to running in underwear than I've been before!

I thought I was ordering red - but the tights look definitely terracotta, and the vest is almost fluorescent orange! Still, that's OK - I won't look like a summer berry, or a tomato - I'll look like a delicious apricot, or juicy tangerine or something!
(Spark emoticons failed me here!)

So - okay, here are the photos.

varicose veins held in under there!

definitely like underwear!
