Phew! It's hot out there.
It feels so close that I knew I would sweat buckets and I hate it when the sweat runs into my eyes. So today I thought I would dig out my black towelling headband that has been lurking at the bottom of the drawer full of running kit. Never used it before because it seems so pretentious somehow.
Tied my hair up, headband on - looks ridiculous! I was trying to describe 'ninja' running to someone on here the other day and now I look the part.
Never mind, I thought, it's always quiet in the village and on a Monday morning most people have gone to work. I'll put my dark running specs on and no one will recognise me anyway.
How wrong was I !!
I was still on my warm up walk when I got stopped not just once but 4 separate times by neighbours who are, rightly, up in arms about a proposed housing development locally. The disguise obviously didn't work at all. But nobody commented or stared - I can only imagine they have become immune to my weird running gear.
So after all that, a good run albeit hot and sweaty. I have to say, that headband actually works a treat....😅
