The “+ More”
I have said before that I am the happiest person you know. I am also the most Type A person you know. Carefree and fly-by-the-seat-of-your pants? I’m the opposite of that girl. It is so bad that I don’t enjoy vacations. “What!?” you say. Yes, you heard me correctly. Stopping life to go somewhere else and do nothing productive is torture for me. However, I do it because I know it is good for me (and maybe a lot because my husband makes me). Yes, I just said that my husband makes me go on vacations. I actually DO know how insane these words sound to you. I do.
With that said, my vacation to St. Maarten last week was as wonderful as a vacation can be for me. Below is a picture of me having fun with a new friend on Simpson Bay beach. He was a native to the island and, I think, was babysitting himself while his mom worked at a nearby hotel.
He was fascinated with my camera and made me take about 250 action shots of him; he had some killer water moves, dives onto a raft (makes great padding for landing), jumps, flips, and spin kicks. After each one, he would run to me to see the image on my camera and laugh and laugh with this contagious laugh that can only come from an 8 year old boy. It was awesome.
That afternoon my new little friend taught me an important lesson about the joy of being carefree. And it wasn’t terrible.

Another BIG thanks to Michelle over at RunningConfessions.blogspot.com for her mad jean-spotting skills at races. This one is from Sunday’s Detroit Free Press Marathon.

I don't even know where to begin in describing the guy behind the site, Buffalo Tom Peabody. I can start by saying that he is creative, a lot of silly, and brings a smile to my face day in and day out. Because of today's post, it is gonna be an especially good day!

Blogger Jen (From Wine to Weightlifting) sent me the following advertisement:
To the marketing department behind this promotion: great choice of running gear on your armband model.
And speaking of Jen, click on over to her blog From Wine to Weightlifting and do two little things for me, please:
- Read the post about me: Lady Lifters Spotlight: Jill! As a bonus, there is a really bad, post-workout picture of me, my cat, and my gigundous quads. If you look close, you can also see my underwear. Classy.
- Read my guest post. Jen asked me to give advice to women who are new to weight lifting or reluctant to try and, in my opinion, it is pretty damn good: There is too much testosterone (and stink) in here!
Tomorrow Jen is running her first half marathon. Jen, you are totally gonna rock that thing! All the best!

Thanks, Friends, for all your kind birthday words.
What better way to start off the third year of this website than sending some inappropriate nudity to you during work hours?
Of course this was taken at Bay to Breakers. Did I even need to say that? Whether or not these girls ractually ran or just walked the race is unknown – but the bib pinned to jeans qualifies them for a post here.
Also, don’t do a Google Image search with “Bay to Breakers” and “nudity.” Just don’t. Trust me.

Somehow, this insanely stupid website has made it to its second birthday.
I ask and ask and ask and never get a good (or any for that matter) answer: WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?
There is love for all of you that visit me here, but I really really REALLY question your sanity. On a daily basis.
I am using this third year to change things up a bit. In the past, I did a “Fake-Like-You-Care-About-Me” series where I shared a little about me, and it was overwhelmingly well received. Thanks for loving me, Friends.
So in addition to posting photos of people in inappropriate denim workout clothing, I occasionally will write other random, unrelated content. I hope you don’t hate this idea. But for right now, I need some variety for my own sanity. Apparently, I have less screws loose than all of you.
With that said, thanks so much, You Weirdos, for sticking with me for TWO WHOLE YEARS.

As you can imagine, I see A LOT of different race costumes (and race signs for that matter). I am always impressed when something creative and new emerges. If you are a Walking Dead fan, you can appreciate this costume. The fact that the runners are in jeans just makes it all the better.
Thanks, All, for hanging out with me this week. As always, send your Halloween race costumes pictures to JoggingJeans@gmail.com.
