To buy a Wild Ginger Running t-shirt visit my blog here: http://bit.ly/WGRtshirt

Lumefit LED light vest – I’m wearing this for running at night, our running club doesn’t allow anyone without lumo on! It’s fantastic, and I think it’s good value at £14 as you get flashing or not-flashing settings for white front and red back lights, and 2 soft, velcro reflective armbands.
