“Looking good is half the battle.”

Once again, I am in love.

Jesse Weber , aka the Unweary Traveler, ran the Antelope Canyon 50 Mile Ultramarathon in February.

He didn’t train. In fact, he never ran a full marathon before.

Along the way, Jesse called one aid station an “all-you-can-eat buffet.” He also fueled with a grilled cheese sandwich, a quesadilla, and Oreo cookies.

He drank Pabst Blue Ribbon during the race.

He wore JORTS and said these things about them:

“Jean-shorts are the ultimate in aerodynamic design and athletic fit, not to mention style.”

“No one realizes how practical [jean shorts] are.” 

“Looking good is half the battle.”

I love San Francisco

Hi again! Didn’t think you would hear from me again so soon, did ya? Surprise!

I was in San Francisco for a few weeks last month and just LOVED LOVED LOVED it there. And I felt this way BEFORE I saw a guy mid-run rockin’ headphones, a sweatshirt, running shoes, and JEANS! He was right in front of me when I stepped out of a restaurant after lunch and by the time could get my phone out, this was what I was able to capture:

SFJeansAnd then in one of my tourist mode moments, I went to Fisherman’s Wharf. Imagine my delight when I saw a giant pair of jeans on the side of a building. It made me think of all of you and how I need to get caught up on all of your blogs/lives.

Little do you know that the other person in this tiny-ass gym took a picture of you in your jeans!

My new awesome job has me on the road A LOT. I am traveling mostly on the west coast and quickly learning the tricks and tips associated with being a road warriorette. One of my biggest challenges with my new lifestyle is keeping up with my workouts in tiny hotel gyms that usually have nothing more than a bench and a set up dumbbells up to 50 pounds. I try my best to make it work.

Occasionally, I am delighted by someone walking into these “fitness centers” and working out in – you guessed it – JEANS!

“Jeans and sweat don’t agree with each other.”

In case you were wondering, I am not dead. Life in Las Vegas is awesome and my new job is rocking my world (in the best ways) – but both have been keeping me insanely busy. I have all the pictures that you have sent of people inappropriately wearing jeans while exercising, and I promise to post them soon.

In the interim, I am sharing the picture* I took yesterday at my gym of a dude working out in jorts. He is, in fact, the very first person I have seen out here wearing denim while participating in some sort of exercise (difference #126 between Las Vegas and Pittsburgh) .

JortsAnd the sign that hangs at my gym that the dude obviously didn’t read:

Rule* Yes, that is me wearing a Steelers shirt sharing my Pittsburgh love in the desert. And, Pittsburghers, how much do you love what is hanging in the entryway of my new home?

You are a fan of BroScienceLife, right?

To my fellow Gym Rat followers,

You know about BroScienceLife, right? If not, go over and check out the YouTube channel of Mike Tornabene and Gian Hunja. Mike and Gian are the comedic masterminds behind the obnoxious, douchebag Dom Mazzetti who makes gym culture hysterical. My favorites: Do you even lift?What is Crossfit?, What type of fitness chick are you? (warning: NSFW)

Recently, BroScienceLife blog featured some JoggingJeans.com pictures in two recent posts:

Ultimate Frisbee done right = Cotton Kills

Some awesome snippets from a recent email from my new boyfriend, Stephen:

Well, it isn’t exactly jogging but I captain an Ultimate Frisbee team named Cotton Kills and our uniforms are denim.  The more the better.  Overalls, cutoffs, dresses, hats, we have all varieties.

Our undefeated team is rejecting technical fabrics in lieu of good old fashioned denim ’cause it looks and feels right.

Our motto: Wool chafes, polyester smells, Cotton Kills!

TeamThe dog!

Cotton Kills reminds me so much of the dodgeball team I featured before: Dodgin’ in Denim. Don’t you think?

h/t Stephen for sharing this with me. Teaser: a fun post is coming soon about Stephen’s Ultimate Frisbee team. Their team name? Cotton Kills. Stay tuned!

 

Cowboys!

Two cowboy things happened after the recent post about Greg, the pace cowboy.

First, I investigated something Greg said: “…I’ve actually thought about taking down that ‘Cowboy Marathon’ record that was set at the London Marathon (3:09) as I’m pretty sure I could do that, jeans, hat and all!”

Um…did this cowboy marathon record involve jeans? Guess what? It did! Meet Rik Vercoe. His race history is pretty darn impressive. His Guinness Record is kick-ass. His quote after his record-breaking run:

Vercoe

“I have to say that running dressed in blue jeans and leather chaps was not the best of ideas on one of the hottest days of the year so far. Needless to say I will indeed be walking like a cowboy for at least a week.”

So great, right?

And then there was this:
