I have been running for about two years now. I started walking a lot the summer of 2007 and had worked up to a very slow jog by Labor Day of that year. I still, other than my shoes and some Under Armor that was my kids’, do not buy specialized gear to run in. I make due with what I have on hand.
That all being said, a friend of mine who is a true runner told me about a web site that I loved when first looking at – One More Mile. Last week I did it. I ordered a pair of running shorts. They came on Thursday. I had placed the order on Sunday, September 13th and received my product via USPS on Thursday, September 17th. That was a wonderful first impression of the company.
My second first impression occurred when the package arrived. The mailing label was handwritten. Instead of the normal “to” it said “To the wonderful:” and then my name and address. Who doesn’t love being called wonderful and receiving mail that says so?
Then, I opened the envelope the order came in. First, my shorts are wrapped in tissue paper and have a multi-colored bow around them. Taped on the paper is magnet. I love magnets!
I am heading out for a run shortly and going to wear the nice, new, comfy shorts. I cannot wait to feel them as I run. Thanks to my friend for telling me how much he likes his.
