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 club in Prada lycra then sit in the cafe all day drinking lattes.
