Ran the Bristol Half Marathon on Sunday. Waiting in the pen at the start and a few minutes before we're due to go I notice the guy in front of me pulling on a pair of latex gloves, the kind of thing your GP might wear when he checks your prostate.
Seemed like rather an odd thing to do. It was a fairly warm day, I can't recall seeing anyone else wearing gloves of any description. Anyone know (or would like to speculate) what the reason was for wearing them?
