Running Costumes with Denim – Joe Dirt Runner

Once again, I am here to remind you that you can always try out denim-running at a costume race. I will be featuring some new ones this week. You can view the entire collection here.

Quit “rubbin’ on”* your damn phone

And, yes, those are jeans.

And, yes, those are jeans and boots.

*Name the reference for this phrase and I will think you are especially awesome. Hint.

Aren’t you hot and itchy?

Chuck Norris kicks ass IN JEANS*

Martial arts in jeans? Two words: Chuck Norris.

From one of the ads:

“These great-looking Western style jeans have a unique hidden gusset which allows greater movement without binding or ripping.”

Gusset. Oh how I wish there were more situations where I could use that word.

UPDATE: My sister just wrote to me and said that she gets to use “gusset” almost daily at her job. Envy.

*Re-posting this one from JoggingJeans.com’s early days because I was just reminded of it with this great sign:

Races that MUST be on your calendars + More

There are three upcoming races that you MUST know about:

  1. My ABSOLUTE FAVORITE group of denim runners are again heading to the Kelly St. Patrick’s Shamrock 5K this year with the team name of “Suns Out Jorts Out.” If you are in the Baltimore area on March 16th, head to the race, look for the group of people wearing jorts with smiles on their faces and beer in their hands.
  2. JHMMy new friends over at Wingate University are doing it again! The 2014 Wingate Jorts Mile will be held on the Wingate campus (North Carolina) on April 24th. The pictures from last year’s inaugural race were AMAZING and even led to my How to Guide for Running a Denim-Themed Race.

  3. And, finally, Trish (@runfreetrl) shared with me a race going on in her town of Canton, MI on June 14th, the Canton Liberty Run. The theme this year is “Stars, Stripes, and Jorts.” Here is the good part:

The “+ More” = My Absence

What’s up, Friends? I am sorry that I have been slacking in my posts. I have a good excuse though: I quit a job that was sucking the life out of me. An entire department of smart, educated professionals were micromanaged, treated unfairly, and bullied (strong word, I know, but it is appropriate). I only had the job for 8 months and knew it was time to go. I was fortunate to find another job right way – a FANTASTIC job with wonderful people where we are all valued and respected.

The stress associated with the change has taken a toll on me and this website was the thing that I had to temporarily let go. But all is good again in Jill-World. Thanks to all of you that reached out to see if I was okay. [hug]

NOW will you run in denim?

If it doesn’t yet seem like the cool thing to do – even after seeing photographic evidence of Jeff Galloway and Nick Symmonds running in denim – then hold onto your $60 tech-materialed running shorts because they are about to be BLOWN OFF.

How about Bart Yasso – BART F’ING YASSO - at the @RunningUSA 3 mile run this morning IN JORTS?

JoggingJeans.com, Boobs and Butt Edition

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

First is boobs Ellen Pompeo, photo courtesy of theblemish.com.

Next is butt Camila Alves (with Matthew McConaughey).

Both are, oddly, running in jeans.
