Jean jogging submission from my sister!

I received the following three texts in succession while my sister was preparing to run the Fort Worth Jingle Bell Run on December 1, 2012.

Omy gosh the first time I have ever seen someone in jeans at a race. She was wearing a bib!!! I couldn’t get her from the front because I didn’t want to get busted taking her pic!!!

Ha ha ok apparently this is more of a “fun run” that I thought. This guy in jeans too!!!

Ok, I quit now, everybody is freakin in jeans and it is 85 degrees here! So ridiculous!!!!

Another denim jackpot race. Clearly.

Before I give you all the details about my sister’s blog, I need a favor. After you clickity click on over there and read a few posts, please DO NOT leave comments like, “Hey, I found you through your sister’s awesome jogging in jeans site.” or “How great is it having JoggingJeans.com’s creator as a sister?”

Wanna know why?

Because unlike my sister who is very open and sharing of her online presence, I am quiet about mine. In fact, there are only a handful of people from my real life that know that I have this site.

You: Why, Jill? You are awesome and crack me up with your exercising in denim photos and commentary. Don’t be ashamed.

Me: Aww…this is why I love you. But most people do not share our weird sense of humor. Most people don‘t get the same joy that we do from viewing pictures of awesome/ridiculous people exercising in jeans.

You: No!

Me: Yes!

So if you mention “sister” and JoggingJeans.com in a comment on her site, my mom will be calling me, “Tsk, tsk, don’t you have better things to do with your spare time?” And at the next wedding or funeral I attend, it is guaranteed that uncles and cousins will be all, “[arm nudge] Jog in any jeans lately? Harhar!” Some will silently wonder to themselves, “What is wrong with that girl?” Others will ask, “What does your husband think of your who-knows-how-many boyfriends?” And I’ll have to politely laugh and try to explain….[ugh] just don’t make me go there. Please.

With that said, my beautiful sister’s name is Lea. Her blog is Running for Dummies. Unlike me, she is a “real” runner. Unlike me, she is a fabulous writer. And she recently opened herself up in a way that is just amazing and really brave – I’m super proud of her.

Love me and I will love you right back even more

BekiLynne‘s Twitter tagline is spot on. She REALLY is as awesome as she claims. BekiLynne, you should add “adorable” and “owner of cute shirts” to your description.

You know why she is the most awesome girl I know? Because she sent me the following picture from the Customer Appreciation Week fun run at Playmakers in Lansing, MI held this past Monday AND shared her love of JoggingJeans.com on Twitter.

Thanks for the love!
