Technology plays a big part in running now for some. I am totally addicted to stats and technology, and I am ashamed to admit, but I certainly feel if my run isn’t on Garmin then it didn’t happen! I like taking photos on my run, controlling my music, and using my Garmin, but hate the hassle of removing my gloves to work them all.
I have been lucky to have a pair of eGlove donated to me, to use as a prize for a lucky reader. The eGlove SPORT enables you to accurately operate touch screen devices such as your Smartphone or other touch screen device without removing your gloves.
Here is the technical information taken from the eGlove website:
Conductive fingertip technology on both thumbs and forefingers for use with GPS and Smartphone applications
Individually sized to maximise accuracy of touch screen devices
Robust double stitching to create maximum strength in the fabric
Silicon deigned palm and finger detail to reduce losing grip on the device
Terry toweling fabric strip on reverse of palm and thumb to remove moisture
Double turned wrist fabric to create additional warmth
Machine wash 40o – tumble dry on low heat or allow to dry naturally!
If you would like to be in with a chance to win a pair of eGlove, all you have to do is donate to my Virgin Money Giving page here. For every 50p donated, I will add your name to a random name generator. So, if you donate £1, your name will be on the list twice, donate £5, then your name will feature 10 times. All the money will go to raising vital funds for the Motor Neurone Disease Association. If you are new to the blog, and want to find out why I raise money for MNDA, have a read here and here.
When you donate the money, make sure you put the words eGlove and your contact email address. I will announce the winner on Sunday 13th March via twitter (@rularuns) and then email the winner. They will then be able to choose which glove design they would like (any glove up to the value of £30) and size.
Good luck to all that enter, and please feel free to share 😉
