It is not a title-tease. JoggingJeans.com does not disappoint, my testosterone-infused viewers.

butt Camila Alves (with Matthew McConaughey).
Both are, oddly, running in jeans.

Thanks to Chuck for his photo from the Relay For Life in Arlington, WA.
Apparently, the oddball at this charity race is the guy dressed appropriately in a t-shirt, shorts, and running shoes. Notice all the people running in coats, hoodies, wings(!), and JEANS around him on this June day.

It is simple, one lap of the outdoor track or two laps of the indoor track, from a standing start, wearing nothing but you most stylish jeans and footwear of your choice (spikes, runners, flats, work boots, slippers everything goes). NO shirts (ladies are allowed to wear a sports bra, if they choose to), no cut offs jeans, no synthetics, no knock offs. Jeans must be 100% full length denim. And of course the objective is to win! As in fastest time takes the title!
And the laugh out loud statement: Cause running in jeans makes you look extra fast!!
The dates say 2007. They called it an “inaugural” event. Emails went unanswered. Joggingjeans.com readers are wondering if this awesome event is still around.

Today’s photo was submitted by Josh, a runner and incredible photographer, and taken during the 2008 San Francisco marathon.
So we all agree that it is weird to run a marathon in jeans, right? But it is WAY more weird to run a marathon carrying an obviously heavy bag on your back. Isn’t marathon running hard enough?
Is it possible that this couple just robbed a bank, the bag is filled with stacks of 100s, and they thought the SF marathon would be good cover for their get-away?
It made me think of these cute bank robber costumes posted over on Best Race Costumes recently.

Thanks to everyone that weighed in on my Mad Men question. I started season 2.

The “+ More”
Can we talk TV for a minute? Specifically, Mad Men? Who watches? I finished the first season last weekend and feel very ‘meh’ about it. The IMDB ratings are high and it wins awards every time I turn around, so part of me is saying, “Hang on and give it a little more time.” But the other part of me knows that if I cross into season 2, I am committed until the end. Does it get better? Opinions appreciated.

It’s not a real party at the gym until the guy who works out in jeans shows up on the treadmill in front of you.
