Yeah, I can still use the touchscreen on my phone with my gloves on.  They're not quite as thin as those crazy yellow things though.

Sigh at you having a posh garmin...

Went out yesterday morning, was about 4 or 5°C - perfect weather to run, in fact maybe a little cooler would be better.  Once you get going you soon warm up.   

you crazy bastard.

I'm cold even when it's 14 degrees inside FFS.

Not when you're running!  Hypothetically speaking of course.

Even when I work out and do kettlebells and all that stuff I'll be cold if it's too close to 10 degrees...and that's a pretty intense excersise

I have rather stupidly agreed to participate in a little challenge

run 2012 miles in 2012

so that's close to 9km/day. I really wish I'd worked that out before agreeing to it, thank god it's a leap year

Gonna have to drop out of the Silverstone 1/2 Marathon as I will be in Spain. Going to do the Milton Keynes one on the 4th March instead unless anyone has a better suggestion.

Only just seen this - you could give your number, chip, etc. to gatters who could run it for nothing on your entry.

Got our team in for the Thunder Run (http://tr24.co.uk) and it's a much stronger team than last year and I think this lot might be taking it a bit more seriously in terms of trying to finish as one of the fastest 7-runner teams.  I'm the 2nd slowest in the team by a considerable distance and we have two runners who run sub 2:45 marathons!

My training for this (it takes place over the last weekend of July) starts NOW!

Very impressive.  That'll give you a predicted marathon time of 3-hours, give or take.
