“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.

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!

People who work out in denim, who hurt you? + More

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.

Another reason to run in jeans!

CommentThis may possibly be the best comment JoggingJeans.com has ever received. I heart Carla for choosing to run in jeans for their practicality.

Then I got to thinking:

It is pretty freakin’ smart to run with a gun. Geez, so many threats: wild animals, attacking dogs, rapists, serial killers. For me, particularly, being tired at the end of a run added to my already slow-ass pace equals a recipe for disaster if faced with a threat.

But jeans? There probably has to be other options to hold a gun during a run. Right? There are!:

RunWithAGunBut are they as cool as tucking it into the front pocket of your 501s? Hells no.

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.]
