Juneathon Day 2 – SOLE Dual Layer Performance Socks …

Going for a run after a night in the pub with Jog Blog is always tough, alas 1) it is Juneathon and 2) I have a pair of socks to review.

Customer service is good and they are quick to… View Post

Lunaling Capri – Product Review

Similar to the Zaggoras, they increase your energy expenditure during exercise and increase your core temperature, leading to quicker weight loss. Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? Well, the lovely people at Lunaling sent me a pair of their capris to try and being that I am lumpy at the moment,… View Post
