November 6, 2021
The continuous rain finally convinced me to get some new kit to protect myself better from the elements. Problem is, there's not very much to choose from here in our small city, and I'm not really interested in buying random clothes unfitted from the Internet. And as it turns out, even with plenty of research online, some things you learn only after the first proper run.
I was pretty pleased with my first purchase as I left for the first run. I noticed almost immediately, however, that the material was mush worse than my previous running jacket. And on top of that, the front pocket was placed in a way that when I put my phone in it (nowhere else to put it), it kept banging on my groins which hurt quite a bit after only few kilometers. What a disaster. Nice jacket, but not for rainy weather or situations where I want to carry anything other than keys. (To be fair, the materials / technical details were 100% my own fault. The store didn't have any information in view, and I didn't research it.)
Off to the shops again.
