How nice it is to live in a city where the department stores are open on Sundays. Today I went out and bought some new running gear:
Socks I got a pair of running socks from Falke; the kind with a L and R wowen in the fabric on the left and right sock, respectively. They are called RU 4 and cost 100 DKR (German firm, don’t know where they are produced).
Base Layer I also needed a base layer and found a nice one from Helly/Hansen to 250 DKR. It’s called Stripe Crew and is available in a lot of colours; I got mine in red (made in Portugal).
Wind Breaker The number one on my wish-list was a wind breaker. I did not want to spend too much on the thing, but since I’m a bit of a gear freak I ended up spending 700 DKR on a Addidas Response made of 100 percent polyester (in Indonesia).
It was all tested today in Aarhus where the temperature is about 1 degree celcius and it was raining. I ran 45 minutes, and it felt warm, dry and very comfortable. The socks made my 2 year old Addidas trainers feel like new!
Update 4.12.05 For my birthday, even though it is not for another 10 days, I got new trainers from my parents. A pair of Asics something-Gel. Tested them this evening for 65 minutes and it felt like I was flying. I feel stupid that I have waited for so long to get a pair of new shoes.
