Ballet? Damn she's probably got a strong ass lower body.
But my girlfriend isn't in bad shape is the thing. She's naturally lean and strong as it is, so if she lifted weights she'd be a natural and she'd look great. But she's stubborn to try it for more then a few days. Between me and you she is a bit of a pussy about it.

Yeah, jogging doesn't make you lose muscle unless you either go way too hard or suffer from malnutrition.
These people ran just under 2800 miles in 64 days (average of about 43.5 miles every day) and only lost 7% of their muscle mass in their legs (and nowhere else). The average person who runs a few miles a day or every few days will get nowhere near this level and won't have any muscle loss unless their nutrition is poor.
That article you linked to is a lot of bullshit and broscience with no real proof to back up any of the claims it makes. AN example:
"Jogging, as the bulk of studies have repeatedly shown, reduces, or at the very least, makes it more difficult to maintain or develop all of the masculine traits I just described. This is why national and World-level powerlifters and weightlifters - most of whom are jaw-droppingly jacked and three times stronger than you are - rarely jog or do anything resembling it. Maybe you're willing to risk minimizing your manhood to obtain the supposed benefits of jogging. I'm not, and here's why."
He doesn't offer even one study that shows that this is true, and he follows it up instead with a few specific examples that not only fail to cover all of the points he makes, but also include more outrageous, unproven claims (i.e. boxers only jog because it is tradition). Some of what he says is fine (i.e. you can get cardio from high intensity lifting sessions rather than jogging) but nowhere in his writing does he prove that jogging causes muscle loss or slows the metabolism.
SO, sure, you could acquire a faster metabolism through weight training than you would get from only jogging, but jogging in and of itself will not kill your metabolism. Also, unless you fatigue yourself just before lifting or flat out overtrain, you won't lose muscle or even potential gains by jogging (assuming you eat right).

That's why I said to take the article with a grain of salt. My experience has shown time and time again that unless coupled with some kind of fast twitch movement, endurance running will build up the smaller type 1 fibers. This doesn't actually lead to you losing muscle fibers, it makes you lose the size and strength of the type 2 fibers, while retaining the smaller type 1.
This specific article was a terrible one, but it was the first thing on the top of my head.
It isn't so much just a few miles every day or other day that is the issue, especially when coupled with a muscle building exercise. Take a look at winning marathon runners, then look at the top sprinters. Marathon runners have very little fat or even muscle on them, sprinters naturally have a very athletic physique, this isn't a coincidence. So it's more of running to an extreme, but it does occur. Even 7% of muscle mass being lost in a 2 month span is freaking fast when not starving.
I was at my absolute skinniest when I was in track running the two mile. I was at my biggest in high school when I was running the 800 meter. I also ran cross country for 6 years, then jumped straight into football and weightlifting. There is a correlation that even I have experienced in real time. Jogging as a cardiovascular exercise to supplement a main exercise is fine. But doing it by itself is not a good idea in my opinion.
