Aaages ago Gray and I had been chatting about what I was going to wear to run the marathon (currently who knows with this crazy weather) but he said if I got a shirt he’d get my name printed for me. I’d forgotten all about it until he reminded me last night. So today, after doing a bit of work, I did a quick search on the sports direct website to see whether it was worth me popping out at lunch time – and as great mind think alike I got a text from Gray saying he was in town – did I know what I wanted!
A shopping trip was promptly arranged and off to Piccadilly and Lillywhites we went!
Lillywhites used to be a lovely purveyor of sporting goods – had a royal warrant and everything!
Now a days sadly it’s still called Lillywhites but is Sports Direct by another name…… a shame but super handy for cheap sportswear.
In the end I’ve gone for a man’s running vest – the ladies were all strappy tops – unlikely to be warm enough for that, or T shirts with high neck line – I’m more of a V neck/plunging/room to breathe girl myself. White with a bit of blue and will be able to wear a T shirt underneath if it’s hot/warm/freezing…..
Gray very sweetly treated me to it and is getting my name printed on too – very excited to have sorted 1 item of clothing for 12 days time (so glad we’re not in single figures yet!)
On the bus back to work I spotted a dragon on the wall by Chinatown – is it the year of the dragon?? Looked pretty cool anyway!
