“Cut!! You, You in jeans, can’t you see what we’re doing here?”

JoggingJeans.com has the BEST fans. Seriously. Especially runner Bethany who sent me the link to the following video. I was watching it thinking, “ok…boring, boring, what’s the big deal?” until I saw the magical thing that happens at 0:51.

 

I found the camera-person’s gradual shift to the left just AWESOME!

Gymnastics? In JEANS?!

Did anyone catch the season premier of America’s Got Talent last week? Did you think of me and this website when you saw ShowProject in their jeans? The only acceptable answer for not noticing the jeans is because you were so entranced by all the shirtless-ness.

A quick lesson on jogging in jeans

Good morning, Class. Welcome.

Davide, a follower from Italy, has been brightening my days by sending me pictures of himself running in a variety of costumes.* He REALLY made my day last month when he sent pictures from the Dieci Miglia di Maria Luigia (Google Translate helped me out: Maria Luidia 10 Miler).

Look closely at the pictures below. Davide does everything right: jorts, belt, dress shirt, big smile, and then sent race photos to me at JoggingJeans@gmail.com. Learn from this star student.

Class dismissed.

Jorts2The second photo sure looks like a good one for a JoggingJeans.com Motivational Poster background. Anyone wanna take a stab at creating the next one?

* As a result of Davide’s dedication to making me happy, I am dedicating three full weeks (!) over at BestRaceCostumes to his race costume photos. Head over there now and enjoy.

Gym Rules that Suck

In the past, people have sent me signs from their gyms that I have categorized as “Gym Signs that Suck.” My new (#badass Las Vegas) gym doesn’t have a sign but it does have a list of rules. There is one rule in particular that sucks. See #4.

GymRules

DrearyIf you care, I am LOVING it here in Las Vegas. Today marks two weeks and it feels like I have lived here for 6 months.

My first thoughts to share:

  • So. Much. Sun. My body hasn’t seen this much vitamin D in my entire life.
  • On my first day here, I got a little sunburn drinking coffee on my porch at 7:00 IN THE MORNING!
  • One day, I thought there were clouds in the sky but it was actually smoke from a house fire a mile away.
  • Goodbye seasonal affective disorder! Hello life of applying sunscreen every single day!

BIG news, actually HUGE news…

[You better sit down for this.]

…I am moving from my beloved Pittsburgh to LAS VEGAS!

The pieces, the details, all fell perfectly in place. To say that we are excited is an understatement.

I will be taking a little hiatus here at JoggingJeans.com as we move, get settled, and begin the next chapter of our lives. Thoughts and prayers are appreciated.

Dukes of Hazzard Love

TVThere is nothing on this earth that brings me a childhood comfort like the television show Dukes of Hazzard. [SCREEECH]. Back up. “Uh, what?” you ask. “Jill, you are pathetic” you say. Let me explain.

Television in my childhood was a treat. My sister and I would wait all week for Friday night. My dad would either make popcorn – old-school style in a pot on the stovetop – or we would take a ride to Hills and buy it beforehand. [The popcorn at the Hills Snackbar was delicious. Was Hills just a Pittsburgh thing?] Sitting on the floor in front of the television, that was carried from my parent’s bedroom into the living room, with big bowls of popcorn on our laps watching the handsome Duke Boys, pretty Daisy, and being naive to the contentiousness of the confederate flag: nothing better.

Boy that was a long story to get to some of my favorite jogging in jeans costume photos EVER:

First, there is the creative and amazing Andy who ran as this, this, and this in the past. He sent me a picture from his most recent race. Notice the jorts. So. Much. Love.

DukesAnd since we are on the subject, here is another from the archives:

Again, jeans and jorts. Love. Love. Love.

I can only hope that the microphone and speaker in Luke’s hand is so he can yell “Yeeee Ha!” as he ran.
