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.”

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:
And 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.

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!
