The essential piece of January running kit

A t-shirt was delivered yesterday. Two t-shirts, in fact. And not just any t-shirts but Janathon t-shirts, yay!

Ideally, I’d have had them sorted way before Janathon started, so I could buy one and check the quality before letting you all know they were available. But because Cafe Press took an absolute age to approve the design (72 hours? Pah!), I didn’t get the chance.

But, I am 100% DELIGHTED with these t-shirts. I was worried that they’d be that cheapy, thick cotton that’s uncomfortable to wear but these are gorgeous. They fit beautifully, the cotton is just the right thickness and weight and I proudly wore mine to the gym this morning.


This is a normal cotton t-shirt but performance dry ones are also available (along with lots of other styles, like the baseball top below).

If I’d have thought about it, I’d have saved wearing it until tomorrow when I’ll be doing my first Parkrun but I’m going to do a white wash today especially and hope it dries in time.

T-shirts, hoodies, bags, mugs, dog t-shirts, slankets, stickers, badges and all sorts of stuff are available in the Janathon Cafe Press shop.

If you’ve bought a t-shirt, I’d love to see a photo on your blog of you modelling it!

Just an ordinary shop girl

I’ve always wanted to work in a shop. I can remember saying to my mum when I was 16 and she wanted me to go to secretarial college and I said I’d rather work in a shop than be stuck in an office. Then she bribed me with £100 (I’m not that cheap these days) and so I went to secretarial college and got stuck in an office for twenty-two years.

Anyway, now I’ve got a shop. Ok, it’s only a virtual one, but I’m quite excited. It’s a Janathon shop and you can buy lots of Janathon things like t-shirts, hoodies, bags, mugs, and – my favourite – a dog t-shirt.


So, off you go then, visit my Cafe Press Janathon shop and fill your boots!
