My first option is a hat from a hat and gloves set by Nike. Its light (so great for stuffing in a pocket when you no longer need it), does keep your head and ears warm to a certain degree. However, it does make me look like I have an egghead, and not in a good way.

Second option is the attractive 80’s style fleece headband. Main problem with this, is knowing quite how to wear it.
Wearing it under hair without bobble is a no-no for someone with a low hairline like me.
Wearing it under a ponytail (as pictured) makes my pony tail look more like a rats tail.
Wearing it over the top of my hair, 80’s tennis player style, looks okay at first (think swish skier look). However after 5 minutes it gives me a curious ‘mushroom hair’ look.
So, all of the above look ridiculous. However, the secret between you and me is, they are all actually really quite toasty around the ol’ lug ‘oles. And that’s all that really matters.
So if you see a mushroom headed / rat tailed / egg headed runner around North Wiltshire, with a secret inner head ‘glow’ (think Angel Gabriel style halo crossed with some one who’s eaten their Ready Brek)- that’ll be me. Just need to sort out some warmer gloves now – the matching Nike gloves were useless today …
