  1. Hey Scott,

    I'm sorry that this is only tangentially related to running but I have to ask. At the Half Moon Bay Marathon awards ceremony, my husband Adam Pomeroy noticed that your jeans actually fit. I want to get him some jeans for Christmas that actually fit his skinny runner build! It's practically impossible! Any chance you'd tell me what brand of jeans you wear? Hope that's not too personal of a question.

  2. Amy - that's a first for me! I've found that Rock and Republic, Joe's Jeans, and AG (all available at Nordstrom) all have jeans that fit my skinny butt pretty well. Christi recommends asking a sales person at Nordstrom too, for they typically know exactly which ones to pull out. Hope that helps!

  3. Those might be the funniest comments I've ever seen on this blog. Awesome.

  4. Ha! Do you know how relevant that question is?!? It's crazy hard to find long leg/no butt jeans. "Big and Tall" stores just roll their eyes. Thanks for the tip, Scott!
    So next question, my 2 yo is built JUST like me. Anyone know where to get skinny jeans for a little girl? Everything is built like a box nowadays.

  5. I believe you have remarked some very intriguing details , thankyou for the post.

  6. For those interested in Comrades, it is filling up quickly this year. Already at 16,000 of 18,000 entries!

  7. Does your website have a contact page? I’m having a tough time locating it but, I’d like to send you an e-mail. I’ve got some suggestions for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it grow over time.


I LIVE for comments! Please add your thoughts, let me know you stopped by, etc., and be thoughtful of others. Always best if you sign your name, of course.
