I was in JJB last night and heard an ad that went something like ' JJB has been voted best runners retailer by runners world magazine readers' . Now that may not be word for word, but that was the gist. Then I read this thread, and it seems even more unlikely!
I went in for energy gels, which they had sold out of, but tried to sell me a bottle of lucozade instead.
I have been in previously and asked for technical fabric t shirts, and the girl did not know what I was talking about. My daughter is a runner, and the choice of proper running gear for girls is terrible, they only do boys technical t's, so she has to wear them, or pay more for a size 8 ladies (too big).
Jane T, MAJOR marathon celebrity, and inspiration to thousands of us. I thought of her often during training, whilst feeling a bit sorry for myself. Marvellous woman, would love to have met her and thanked her, but I didn't.
In case you're reading this, thanks Jane, for helping me to do it.
