A race with a Jazziest Jorts Award

Trish told me about it. I told you about it. The Canton Liberty Run was held on June 14th. The theme was is “Stars, Stripes, and Jorts.”

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

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]

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.

If you see someone exercising in jeans, be sure to look closely.

The last post got me thinking about all the different denim-inspired clothing we have seen here at JoggingJeans.com. It is important that you are reminded so when you see someone exercising in them, you aren’t duped into thinking they are the real thing.

To begin, make sure those jeans you see aren’t jeggings (as modeled by Conan and by Cori):

JeggingsThe person that you see skiing in jeans might actually be wearing faux denim ski pants:

PicNicAnd do you remember the time I wore INKnBURNS’s denim look-a-like athletic pants, True Blue Performance Denim Capris, on a run, at the yoga studio, and at the gym? You’ll have to click the link to see the pictures of me.

Where were we? Oh, denim underwear are not jorts:

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.
