Running Mont Blanc

Most of the team here at howies like to go running from time to time. None of us are incredibly fast. We're more Forrest Gump than Mo Farah. But although we all run different speeds, and different distances, we all enjoy getting out on our favourite routes.

In terms of distance, it's Chris, who runs our shop in town, who goes the furthest. With more than a few "ultra" runs under his belt, he gets more odd looks than the rest of us combined when people find out what he gets up to in his free time.

Next week, we'll be heading out to the Alps to support him in the biggest event he's ever entered, the UTMB trail race around Mont Blanc. It's a long run, with a lot of mountain passes to get through, but we're sure Chris will still be smiling as he makes the finish line.

Keep an eye on our Instagram for updates from the race next weekend.

You were born to run. Maybe not that fast. Maybe not that far. Maybe not as efficiently as the 60 year old woman who just overtook you. But you were born to get up off your backside and move. To fire up that those legs, for that simple, energy-giving, blood-pumping, sodium-bleeding, sofa-beating thing we call running.

New running range for Men and Women.

Weather the weather

Whatever the weather this weekend, dress for it and get out in it.

When you're home and changed with a cuppa, your pulsing thawing hands,
deeply aching thighs, burning cheeks and clear bloodshot eyes will be the reward.

The words of this old nursery rhyme says it all.

Whether the weather be fine,
Or whether the weather be not,
Whether the weather be cold,
Or whether the weather be hot,
We'll weather the weather
Whatever the weather,
Whether we like it or not!
