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 March 23rd. 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]

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.

The “+ More”

Are you on the Biscoff Spread bandwagon yet? If not, let me be the first to tell you – no, ORDER you – to get your hands on a jar of this stuff. Your life will never be the same. It is put-your-tongue-in-the-jar-to-lick-out-the-last-little-bit delicous.

I also don’t want to go to Biscoff rehab alone.

NSFW – Topless Women Running IN JEANS

Thanks, Friends, for all your kind birthday words.

What better way to start off the third year of this website than sending some inappropriate nudity to you during work hours?

NSFW

Of course this was taken at Bay to Breakers. Did I even need to say that? Whether or not these girls ractually ran or just walked the race is unknown – but the bib pinned to jeans qualifies them for a post here.

Also, don’t do a Google Image search with “Bay to Breakers” and “nudity.” Just don’t. Trust me.
