I do love receiving surprise packages but my joy often turns to disappointment when I find the package contains some techy bike gear my husband has ordered or a present for one of the kids rather than something actually for me. But no, this time it really was for me – a package from Prodirectrunning : a t-shirt, a hoodie and a soft, lightweight ‘dolondon’ shower jacket, all in a matching turquoise blue. Fantastic!
The lovely Monique at Prodirectrunning is running a blog on my recipes, combined with inspirational marathon training tips from Charlotte Thompson, who is training celebrity hair stylist Tara Smith and singer, Natalie Imbruglia. Charlotte is such a great personal trainer that she tries out my recipes (she’s particularly fond of the marmalade flapjacks) and then offers them to her clients after their workouts with her!!
Dorunning clothes are especially gorgeous because the materials they use are so soft and lightweight. I find them particularly comfortable to run in. Unfortunately for me, the dorunning t-shirt is so gorgeous that within minutes my sixteen year old daughter had swiped the T-shirt and run upstairs to try it on. The next thing I know she’s putting on her trainers to go for a run! Nothing like a new piece of kit to inspire you to get out there and run, especially if you’re 16!!! She seems to have claimed this t-shirt as her own, but I have managed to keep the hoodie to myself. It appears that we are now “sharing” the amazing ‘dolondon’ shower jacket.
The shower jacket is just sooooo soft and lightweight – great to pop over a running vest on a windy day to keep off the chill and easy to take off and stow around your waist or stuff into a trouser pocket (or even into the mini bag that is supplied with it) if you get too hot. I wear it all the time now. It looks as good as it feels. Then there’s the hoodie : really soft and very snug, you just don’t want to take it off. Ever. It’s perfect to throw on before or after after a run or for warm-up/warm-down sessions, perfect to throw on to meet the kids from school, perfect to throw on over your pyjamas if you feel like chilling out on a Sunday morning….
