    Winter Running – How I dress

    Winter running is always a tricky one – you’ve worked so hard throughout the year to get where you are that the Idea of having to loose fitness and redo everything is unbearable. Summer Bodies are made in winter and here are some things to consider when running in winter! It all started one morning when I went for a run at 4am here in Pretoria. It was about 10-13 degrees and there wasn’t really wind – well that’s if your standing still. I wore long leggings and a standard JT Top with a long sleeve cotton top pulled over.
