A few weeks ago I contacted Jordan with Tommie Copper asking if Allan & I could review their compression gear. I figured running my first half marathon would be a great time to see if all of the Tommie Copper praise that has blown up my blog reader in the past several months would hold true for us. After my first half marathon on Saturday I knew that wearing my Tommie Copper compression shirt and calf compression sleeves were a must unless I just wanted to be sore and in pain on Sunday and Monday. I put them on immediately after my shower and wore them out to lunch (under jeans and my half marathon finisher's shirt) and kept them.

She was nice enough to send a women's compression shirt for me along with a pair of calf compression sleeves and a knee compression sleeve and a pair of calf compression sleeves for Allan. She also included a beanie which Allan has been wearing constantly and had on for my half marathon.

In case you don't know anything about Tommie Copper (if you're in the runner blogger world you must have been under a rock since the spring) here's a little bit of information from my emails with Jordan:
"We have designed the first line of Copper Compression products comfortable enough to be worn all day. Until now, compression wear was designed primarily for athletes to be worn for short periods of time to enhance recovery, and help relieve pain.
Today everyone can tap into these benefits with Tommie Copper's compression products. The product line utilizes a patented Tommie Copper CompressionTM technology that combines a proprietary yarn with an exclusive multi-directional compression weave. Tommie Copper's compression is designed to be comfortably worn all day long by those looking for supportive relief from aches and pains during sports, work and everyday activities.
