Despite my rockin’ cyber searching skilz, I was only able to find a few pictures from the event. Fortunately, they are FABULOUS pictures:

Awhile ago, I wrote a series of post about the reasons that people run in jeans. The countdown went something like this:
1. Forgetfulness. As in the person got to the race or the gym and had an “oh crap, I forgot my gear” moment and just made due with what they were wearing.
3. Dedication. Think not wanting to break a run streak.
4. Cultural differences. Yeah, not everyone in the world can afford $40 running shorts.
But there is a reason I forgot: love, friendship, and/or support. Janae’s (aka Hungry Runner Girl) sister ran miles 20.5-26.2 of the Utah Valley Marathon with her IN JEANS AND FLIP FLOPS!

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.

It has been awhile since I have posted a motivation poster. Shame on me.

One of my favorite jean-joggers, Dan, left the following comment on my last post titled, “Nothing screams, “I’m ready for an intense workout” like knee-length jorts at the gym”:
