Last year at the IHRSA show, Pam and I were known as the jean-jacket twins. It's notoriously cold in the exhibit halls and session rooms at almost any trade show we attend, so naturally, we bring jackets everywhere we go. For the IHRSA show in San Francisco, Pam and I had both, coincidentally, packed our jean jackets and wore them every day and everywhere at the show. We made quite the dynamic denim duo if you ask me, but everyone noticed and commented on our similiar apparel.

This year, though, I have a new twin: our art director Jennifer Ray. It was Jennifer's first Club Industry show, and therefore the first time she had met many in the industry face to face. The first words out of many manufacturers' and attendees' mouths were, "Are you two twins?" Yes, we have the same first name, same shade of red hair and, for this show, very similiar tastes in fashion. We both ended up wearing nearly all black yesterday, and this morning, at early morning workouts, we both donned pink dri-fit T-shirts and black pants with a matching pink strip. Dorky, I know, but I swear it wasn't planned.

They say great minds think alike...that must apply to fashion, too. -- Jennipher
