Update: Weighed up both recommendations and went for the Sunwise as they looked a little more feminine and still come with accents of orange! Didn't know which ones you have Irishprincess as the link went to all the running ones. Was a toss up between Greenwich and Windrush, but decided on the interchangeable ones so I can use in all light. If money was no object I'd have gone for the Hastings Midnight, but alas my wish-list is already too long! Thanks to you and pinkaardvark for taking the time to share your advice.

God, yeah, must be awful. I know we're supposed to keep our head up, but does it help to tip your cap forward at all? Just thinking it might act as a barrier.
Also, you could try a running buff although I'm really not sure how that would feel. I hear lots of runners are running with them around their necks wet during this weather, well maybe you could pull it up over your nose and mouth, although that sounds like it would be terribly hot and uncomfortable. Maybe worth a shot if it's that bad???
Very nice 😎 Mine were a pressie from my husband and are bright orange. Not a colour I would have chosen as it clashes with my usually red face! But children seem to like them and I usually get waves and smiles from them when I'm wearing them 😂
They're fab and I wear mine in the garden now too as they're easy to find 🙂
Gotta think ahead! Last couple of seasons have been iffy over here tbh. One of the main motivations for running is to strengthen my ski-legs. Went out last season less than fit and didn't make much progress. Fitness is everything in injury prevention.
As for skiing in July, I often visit the indoor ski pace nearby in Intu Braehead (Snow Factor) which uses real, albeit man-made snow, in the summer. Quieter, better rates, keeps my hand in and is a great cool-down in hot weather. Oh, and the German bier afterwards might be somewhat motivational!
I only took up snowsports about 4 years ago and since then I've been much more active and turned into an "outdoorsy"! What's it all about!? 🤣
You’ve just reminded me I have a birthday pressie voucher to visit Milton Keynes snow dome, that would be a nice day out. We love Colorado so have bought a 2018/19 season pass already (cheaper than a week pass) and will go for 2 or more weeks. We haven’t had a bad season yet - touch wood. Just love being there.
I wish I hadn't read this 😐
Now I'm looking for runglasses!.
I already have to put headband, earbuds, sometimes cap on, still squinting against the light though.
I never considered sunglasses, even though mine are rarely off ( I'm photosensitive 😎)
How many more items can you shove on one head?, I swear it takes me longer to get ready for running than it does to get ready for work. .
Amazon, here I come.
You look fab by the way 🤩
Haha! I'm sure we can get another couple on Jell6. It'll be like human buckaroo! Love it! I'm loving these as they are so light compared to my regular Sunnies. Wrap-around is great too. If you look at my original post you'll see other recommendations too. Good luck! 😎😘
