Runners reassured on elegant exercise
With a range of outfits and accessories on offer, there is no excuse for not looking fashionable while running, an expert has claimed.

The Daily Record's fashion writer Fiona Russell highlighted that exercise clothing brands, including accessories such as sports socks, water bottles and watches, are now so attractive they deserve their own catwalk.

Socks can add a colourful detail to a running ensemble, and allow pattern and fabric coordination, the article suggested.

"Try a pair of breathable, well-fitting running socks and you'll never look back," Ms Russell advised joggers, sprinters and power-walkers.

Britons should feel reassured that just because they are exercising, they do not need to leave their fashion sense at home.

It is widely believed that when a person knows they look good, they feel better about themselves, potentially providing a boost to a runner's motivation.

Stephanie Gabriel Boyden, personal trainer at Canyon Ranch, recently told online resource YourTotalHealth that gym newbies should dress with their usual style when exercising and wear clothes they feel comfortable in.
