Ok Ok, I admit it. I see something online, and I immediately fall in love. I HAVE to have it. As in, it's screaming to me, "order me! order me NOW!"
This was the case with my new favorite running gear from Hashtag01 - I saw one of my cool Twitter friends sporting this gear over in the UK and I clicked on their website - and fell in love with their messaging. Check it out:
Quoting from their website:

Now seriously - who can't get behind this message?!
So, off I went to order a few items. They have a woman's shirt and a beanie hat that I "had to have" - so you know the routine, click "add to cart..." and then see that they even offer free shipping (within the UK!) Damn. the one time I was excited for free shipping - but that's ok. Totally worth the money.
I think I ordered these items on a Tuesday maybe. By the next week, my post lady pulled up in her fancy USPS wagon, and waltzed to my door with a little plastic package. Addressed to me! Yay! I was just happy it wasn't a bill, let's be honest.
I opened the package and found this:
I had ordered the women's shirt and the beanie cap, because who doesn't need one of these in the winter time? Phoenix gets downright FREEZING in the winter - I'm talkin' into the 30s.... (I see you all collectively rolling your Canadian eyes here.... ) and every decent respectable runner should have one... so yeah. I have one now. They sent me this free moisture-wicking baseball cap too. I love it. I mean I REALLY super duper love it. I was their very FIRST United States client and I think they appreciated that, so they sent me a little love note explaining that the cap was their gift to me.
Um.... personalized attention from a company all the way overseas, who probably figured you ordered on a whim? Yes please. These guys clearly aced Marketing 101 and moved on into Stellar Customer Service.
I love the shirt - it fits perfectly ... one TINY issue is that the head hole is slightly small. Maybe I have a larger - than - normal head (oh come on, really now, maybe I do...could be all that hot air....) so I have to take off my glasses when I put the shirt on. Otherwise, perfection. The beanie hat fits great as does the baseball cap, which is, of course, adjustable in the back.
I would highly recommend this company to anyone considering sporting this message and being part of a company that seems to have their finger pointed right where it should be. Back to its amazing clients.
Thanks, Hashtag01 for these great items! I look forward to wearing your gear for a long time!

And no, they didn't pay me to say that, and yes, I paid for these clothes. So these opinions are totes legit and not purchased.
