12499992[1]I have read DD cupfuls of articles on the merits of the right sports bra.  As with running shoes I didn’t realise that there was so much technology in such a simple item.  Apparently your boobs rotate in a figure of 8 fashion when you run so without full support you will soon end up with them swinging at your knees.  I adopt ‘trussed chicken’ mode with a Berlei Shock Absorber.  Its seems to do the trick as so far I have not had any personal injuries claims from passers-by.

Apart from the luxury of a good bra and shoes I have spent little money on my running kit.  I am more Sports Direct than Sweaty Betty.  The main reason for this is that I would feel such a twit wearing the latest designer gear and crossing the finishing line last at every race.  I know too many Yummy Mummies who buy the latest £300 Wilson rackets, go to the  tennis club, then miss every ball.  They are the same ones that go to the local health cP1060113_(5)_Sweaty_Betty_316_250_c1_smart_scale[1]lub in Prada lycra then sit in the cafe all day drinking lattes.

I am running the New York Marathon 2013 for Macmillan Cancer Support. If you are enjoying reading my blogs please donate at:
