Run (in Jeans) Just Because

Run Just Because blogger left this comment on a recent post and it MADE MY DAY.

Back when I was in military service, we had a fitness test that involved a 2.4km run. In order to get an “A” for that part of the test, we had to run it in under 9:45. A month before the test I was doing 11 minutes. I spent the next four weeks doing 3-4km runs in my heavy field boots and jeans till I could clear the 2.4k in 10 minutes. On test day, I ditched the jeans and boots for PT kit and runners and ran 9:15. Success from running in jeans!

Write that down. Remember it.

I can judge them because of their choice of workout clothing but not because of their books.

You know why? Because I sometimes study at the gym between sets too. Physical AND mental gains, I say.

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.

IF* I ever run in denim….

…the jorts I wear will be short.

I’m old and have huge quads (yes, I squat, A LOT), but I don’t care. The less denim touching me, the better.

No way will I be like this guy:

*A BIG if.

And speaking of bleached jeans

A side note: Is this a thing again? If so, I am slightly bothered by the fact that I have witnessed a complete fashion cycle. I bleached my jeans in high school. :(

Jeans in the gym is like a penny in a puddle of piss.

Okay. I have no idea what that means but I wanted to use it.

Can we agree that the jeans-in-the-gym situation is getting out of hand?
