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

I think we have found another reason to add to the list: running in jeans makes it easy to carry your gun.

[While searching for ways to carry a gun during runningI found this. Ack.]

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:

Running Costumes with Denim – Laverne and Shirley

We continue this week with more race costumes that involve denim.

If Kanye West fans are asking about “newcomer” Paul McCartney, I’m guessing that my young viewers are gonna be all, “Who is Laverne? Who is Shirley?”

Kids, here is your lesson for the day.
