Janji: Spring Running

Last fall, I posted about Janji, a company with a mission to end the global food and water crisis.

This Spring, Janji has added a new line of apparel for both men and women.  Along with expanding their support from two countries to five, Janji has also changed the clothing’s designs, colors, and fit.

You can visit Janji’s BLOG to read all about the new clothing line and reasons for the design updates.

Janji kindly gave me the opportunity to try out the women’s Rwanda shirt.

The colors of the shirt, including the wrap on the back reflect the blue, yellow, and green of the Rwanda flag.  The v-neck and front stitching design, which is new for all of the women’s tops, gives the shirt a very flattering look and fit.

The cause for each country is written on the shirt’s right sleeve while “Janji” is written on the shirt’s left shoulder area.

Each clothing set, (shirts/shorts) supports a different country and cause.  Using my Rwanda running top as an example:

Directly from the Janji website:

“with a purchase of Janji’s Women’s Rwanda shirt, you provide 3 days of nutritional medicine to a malnourished Rwandan child.  Proceeds fund MANA’s Ready to Use Therapy Food, a peanut butter based nutritional medicine that can help nurse a severely malnourished child to full health in just 6 weeks.”

I’ve really enjoyed running in the Rwanda running top, including while in warm and sunny Florida!  It kept me cool and comfortable despite the warm and humid temperatures.  My favorite feature of the new women’s shirt line is the length.  I love my Run for Haiti Janji running top, but the length has always seemed just a little short.  The tops in this new Spring line offer the same breathability and comfort as Janji’s first line of clothing, but with added length and color.  As a bonus, the shirts are lightweight, semi-fitted, and moisture wicking.  Exactly the type of top I want to wear when running!

If you are curious about sizing, I am wearing a size small in the Rwanda shirt.  This is the size I would normally order for a running top and I would say it’s the perfect fit.

Now for even more great news:  If you will be in Boston for the marathon next weekend…

    I remember when you posted about these before and really like the new designs a lot more.

    I just wish their sizes ran bigger, I wear a large in every other company but i still can’t fit in my Janji gear. Its sad but yet a weird motivation to keep loosing and running. I look forward to the day I can rock my Janji shorts and top on a training run or even a race.

    I have never heard of Janji until now! It sounds like an awesome cause! Loving to workout comes with a love for workout clothes as well, so the fact that these clothes have a cause behind them is great! Definitely need to check the site out! Have a good time at the Boston marathon, and thanks for sharing!

    I have seen Janji before, but I haven’t run in any of their clothes yet! I love them though! We were supposed to go spectate Boston but it just didn’t work out, have fun!
