Take my shorts? No problem.

The Pyongyang Marathon in North Korea last week marked the first time that foreign runners have been allowed to race.

And when a runner showed up and had his clothes confiscated because the logos on his shorts were too large, I bet you can guess what he did:

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.

One of these things is not like the other…

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.

Jeans required. No shirts allowed.

Edmonton Thunder Track and Field Club called it “Jeans 400.” The rules were clear:

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.

Don’t laugh at old people who jog in jeans.

Old people who jog are awesome no matter what they wear. Don’t laugh at them.

Girl jogging IN JEANS with guy-friend carrying a mysterious heavy bag

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.

End-of-Year Miscellaneous Funnies

People often send me funny pictures of people exercising who aren’t wearing denim. To bring the year to a close, and as an end-of-the-year present to you, I thought I would share some of them.

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.

Advertisers: Yes, put your running models in jeans!

Blogger Jen (From Wine to Weightlifting) sent me the following advertisement:

HalfOffDealsTo the marketing department behind this promotion: great choice of running gear on your armband model.

armbandAnd speaking of Jen, click on over to her blog From Wine to Weightlifting and do two little things for me, please:

  • Read the post about me: Lady Lifters Spotlight: Jill! As a bonus, there is a really bad, post-workout picture of me, my cat, and my gigundous quads. If you look close, you can also see my underwear. Classy.
  • Read my guest post. Jen asked me to give advice to women who are new to weight lifting or reluctant to try and, in my opinion, it is pretty damn good: There is too much testosterone (and stink) in here!

Tomorrow Jen is running her first half marathon. Jen, you are totally gonna rock that thing! All the best!
