Do I need any of this stuff?

June 24, 2013

There are a few running shops in Brighton and also general fitness stores. I think one of the best is Sweatshop on Queens Road. This is not a plug for them and I am in no way associated with them.

But in the interests of full disclosure I did go in there on Saturday, looked about at all the stuff and walked out thinking ‘do I need any of this stuff?


Maybe I can be a bit geeky at times so I decided to save my money. As I have only been running a week I want to make sure I actually keep this up before robbing myself of more cash better spent post run drinking.

Although I generally prefer independent shop this lot seem to have a pretty good background and ethos. They are also involved in setting up free 5k runs which I may consider doing one weekend. They happen all over the world and there is one in Brighton. The Brighton & Hove parkrun is every Saturday in Hove Park.

Food for thought.
