About the Author

My name is Jill.

First off, no, I don’t jog in jeans.

But here are the details about how this site came about and the truth about what I think of the people that DO jog in jeans.

I live in Pittsburgh, PA. I love my city and think it is worthy of its Most Livable City title. In fact, if there was a “Who Loves Pittsburgh The Most” contest, I would have the gold, silver, and bronze metals around my neck. I’d have the trophy in one hand and the giant check in the other.

Me in 30 words:

Best Race Signs: A collection of the signs that inspire us when we run races.

If you are awesome, email me or follow me on Twitter. I could use more awesomeness in my life. You get bonus points if you are from Pittsburgh!

  8. You are an absolute delight! My sister always did the Pittsburgh Half or Relay Marathon when she lived in town, and now she’s started commuting in from Indianapolis for it every year. I never did any races, but I certainly loved running around the Highland Park reservoir. Ahh, I miss Pittsburgh so hard it hurts!

  9. Your blog is awesome! I can’t believe how many people exercise in jeans…I must have been living in a bubble to have never witnessed this. Here I thought it was odd to see men on the trail sweating it up in polo shirts and khakis. Hmph.

    I <3 the Burgh! This past year, I proudly claimed the title "Runner of Steel." :-)

  12. Is Pittsburgh really the most awesome city? Are you sure? I know a guy that always run in cargo shorts. For training runs, races, everything. Do you know a Running in Cargo Shorts blogger?

    Hi Jill!
    So glad you stopped by my blog! And so happy to have been linked to by Running is Funny.
    I grew up in Fairmont, WV and visited Pittsburgh frequently. We went every fourth of July for the fireworks and Kennywood. My sister and brother-in-law live in Shadyside. We still go to Pittsburgh to do our Christmas shopping.
    Love your blog!
    Maybe it’s the small community I run in, but I’ve never seen anyone run in jeans, but maybe I haven’t been paying attention. I’ll be on the look out from now on :)

  17. Hmmm … I don’t run (except from patient to patient in my women’s health practice), I don’t live in Pittsburg (but had a blast visiting one time), but I do like funny. I look forward to coming back and checking out your blog.

  18. I nominated your blog for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award. I know these things are not much, but know that I appreciate your blog and what you are doing! http://janelikestorun.wordpress.com/2013/10/18/blogging-award-time/

    I am also from Pittsburgh and lived there for my first 22 years of life. So I am happy to meet a fellow Pittsburgher blogger.

  19. Great blog. I’ve seen people running in jeans in races I’ve entered. Makes me wonder about all the money I spend on cute running gear. Looking forward to your future posts.

    In 2012, while running in the Pittsburgh (half) Marathon I saw someone running in jeans near Allegheny Center (mile 5?), but alas, he was just crossing the road and trying to avoid the hundreds of people stampeding through. Would love to see someone really do this. Maybe for fun someday I’ll do a 5K in jeans.
