Ice Grips for Winter Runners from ICEGRIPPER
Ice Grips for Runners
For those of us who live in regions of the UK, where snow is not predictable year on year, it can be a little intimidating when we suddenly find ourselves faced with a white landscape. But don’t worry ICEGRIPPER has a selection of ice grips for runners…
For many people a daily run is as important a part of the daily routine as a cup of coffee! City and Urban dwellers often NEED it as an antidote to stress and hours of sitting at a PC. Disruption caused by snowy and icy weather can easily see it interrupted and as we all know, even after just a week’s lay off, the loss of fitness makes it hard work getting back into the routine again.
So, invest in some ice grips - there are some special benefits to be had from running in snowy and icy weather, other than just keeping up a routine….
- Putting fresh tracks down on a newly laid blanket of snow is a wonderful feeling. Something skiers have known about for years - and often rave about!
- The crunch of fresh snow underfoot is a delicious sensation, reminding us of the carefree days of childhood
- Winter air feels invigorating and challenges you to push a bit harder?
- Running during snowfall is a treat and getting back to a warm house with your jacket covered in snow creates a sense of adventure and achievement
- Running on ice is an experience few people achieve…it’s a whole new world!
