You are aiming to feel a bit cold when you head out.  Or learn to feel comfortable running while carrying the top layer of now-not-needed-kit

Gore tights and long sleeved top, jacket if necessary, sometimes gloves and fleece hat.

I LOVE running in winter!!!!!!!

Long sleeved jackets can be tied round the waist...

I've also experienced some very nasty fly bites while running in London.  Only on exposed flesh though!

I bet the Aussie covered in green slime is really wishing the naked Pom would blow his nose on the sidewalk instead??

I wear shorts all year round.

Vaseline !!! And he calls himself a 'real man' - where I come from girls queue for nightclubs in crop tops and mini skirts, even in December and January.

Long sleeves, gloves and a hat if I can see my breath when I step outside. Can't bear anything around my legs.

Buney, is that a pair of blue tits I can see flying by in that first picture? *G*  Maybe they're after some nuts.

You live in Ilford?  There's a decent running shop near Liverpool St which is probably your entry into London.  Other than that, go online or go to Decathlon in Canada Water which is a great place to get cheap kit.

The shop near Liverpool St is Runner's Need....
