A complete lunatic is off for a run on the front this morning.

Exercise fanatic Pete Bowen, 42, has decided not to let the cold weather interrupt his ‘training schedule’ for September’s Swansea Bay 10k.

Bowen said: “I don’t think the Ethiopian athletes let all the snow they have interrupt their Olympics training, so why would I?

“I’ve invested £30 in running gloves, aerodynamic headwear and thermal socks to stuff my running tights with.

“I’m looking forward to seeing people and saying ‘perfect weather for it’ as I run past them.

“Then, once I’m done, I’ll go to a coffee shop and announce the fact I’ve been for a run to everyone and watch as they look at me in awe.”

Bowen added: “After the euphoria of my Lycra clad exploits, I’ll then wonder about what else I can do to avoid my family who are all on a snow day.

“Maybe I’ll take the old bike out, or hide out in a pub with my secret packet of Marlboro Lights.”
