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

butt Camila Alves (with Matthew McConaughey).
Both are, oddly, running in jeans.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
Thanks for visiting and loving me in 2013. Happy New Year!

A refresher: Jeans + capri pants = japris
Jogging in japris has been made famous by my denim-jogging friend, Danny, at the Sulphur Springs 5K and highlighted in this post. Oddly, we are seeing more and more of them at the gym:
The “+ More”
The great thing about not letting many people in my “real” world know about this site is that I can talk about vaginas and not worry about my mom all being all [gasp!] and clutching her chest.
Vaginas have been a recent theme for me.
1. I went for my annual gynecologist visit and a new doctor was added to the practice (the last one).
2. I looked at one of my favorite sweaters and noticed that there is a vagina on it. See it?
It is now my absolute favorite sweater.
3. Scott over at PirateBobCat saw a vagina on his run the other day and wrote about it here. Hands down, the weirdest thing seen on a run.
Any good vagina stories you want to share? Just kidding, I don’t want to hear about your vagina.

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.
