My fingers go white after a long run but they can also do that on really cold days when there is no running involved. Sometimes the steering wheel of the car is soooo cold in the winter my fingers go white. Then it feels really odd driving the car with deadened fingers!!!

Can someone start a 'bumping into Helena Bonham Carter on your long run' thread, please?

Got something to say?
