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.
We are professionals from the outdoor industry who are rejecting technical fabrics in lieu of good old fashioned denim ’cause it looks and feels right.
Our motto: Wool chafes, polyester smells, Cotton Kills!
Cotton Kills reminds me so much of the dodgeball team I featured before: Dodgin’ in Denim
. Don’t you think?

J.J. Watt and Arnold Schwarzenegger on their recent bro date, a squat session . . . IN JEANS.
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!

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!

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.
You can watch the full act (~1:10) here.

The “+ More” = A Little About Me
Reading about Elisa’s kitchen renovation has got me reminiscing about all the work we did on our condo a few years ago. Our renovation was a MAJOR one. I’m talking demolish-and-rebuild MAJOR, every square inch. We learned one important thing during it: NEVER undergo a whole-home renovation. It sucks on so many levels.
Anyway, during the work, I was OBSESSIVE about taking before, during, during, during, during, during, during, and after photos of every little space. Here is an example, with most of the “durings” removed:
I chose this sequence because I am in love with that hand-painted panel which I found at an estate sale for super cheap. Another thing about me: I’m an estate sale, flea market, thrift store addict. Retail is for suckers.

It happened again this morning. A ridiculous number of people showed up at my gym IN JEANS. Gym friend, Sarah, and I were the oddballs in exercise clothing.
Sarah, aka Master of Stealth, is responsible for all of these pictures today.
UPDATE: Maybe Mary is right and Pittsburghers have lost their minds because of the snow. Today was the biggest snowfall day we have had all year. Right now, the view out my window:

CrossFitters = athletes that know how to rock fashion during workouts
Also, in the past, I wrote about CrossFitters in British Columbia who wore their best denim outfits to raise money for a children’s hospital there. A little taste of what you missed:

So we cover jogging regularly here at JoggingJeans.com, right? We have also seen people inappropriately wearing jeans while weight lifting, doing martial arts, on cardio equipment, and in CrossFit boxes. I feel like we have seen it all. Almost…
Cheerleading? In jeans!?
Why would ANYONE think this is a good idea? Men want glimpses of ass cheek. Cheerleaders want to be able to move freely. Neither of those things are happening in jeans.
And then have a look at these adorable, wholesome 1980’s cheerleaders in jeans:

January at gyms = my favorite time of year. No joke. And it has nothing to do with workout apparel (okay, maybe a little).
Resolutioners help to break up my grind – the week-after-week, month-after-month, year-after-year, gym grind that typically contains no fresh starts or earth-shattering new goals for me.
I am okay being elbow-to-elbow with you or waiting an extra minute for the equipment that you are using. You know why? Your fresh start is my fresh start. Your excitement is my excitement. I enjoy watching your early strength gains, your longer and longer runs on the treadmill, your smiles of accomplishment, your transforming bodies.
I hope you stick around. I hope you become more healthy. I hope you grow to love the gym as much as I do. (And, I hope you learn what is appropriate and what is not appropriate to wear to the gym.)
And…I LOVED this comment on a sign at my gym asking, “What will your legacy be?”
