Today’s post is a guide on how to prepare for and run a in denim-themed race. The Inaugural Wingate Jorts Mile is being used as an exemplar because 1) it was INCREDIBLE and 2) someone…ahem… got her hands on a few more photos from the event!
Thanks SO MUCH to my new friends at Wingate University.
I love you all more than you know!

People! Remember my brilliant idea for a denim race?!
It happened. It was called the Inaugural Wingate Jorts Mile. It took place last Saturday at Wingate University. It looks like the most incredible event. Didn’t I TELL YOU that it was a good idea? Here is the pictorial evidence of my idea’s brilliance:
The SIGN! The SIGN! Made out of pairs of jeans! L.O.V.E.
And race photos that you will love only a fraction of the amount that I love them.
The only thing that would have made this race better? Me at the finish line hugging people as they crossed.
Who are you, People Behind This Race? We are of like minds and NEED to be friends.

I didn’t struggle with today’s picture of Jason Peter “Jay” Garrick (aka The Flash) because blogger Greg’s post over at Twenty Six Two Life is just as much about the jeans as it is about the costume:
If you can’t tell from the picture, there is one major setback of this outfit; jeans. Yes, you can look up any picture of Jay Garrick you want and you’ll find the guy is running sub-atomic speed in jeans. What the heck? If a fictional superhero can run around the world in jeans, clearly I can do a simple little half marathon in some, right? It seemed like a good idea.
And a little bit later in the post:
Those damn jeans started getting weighed down in sweat that had soaked it all. Running in jeans was hard enough; gross, wet, sweaty jeans are even worse. It made it hard to get a full stride as the force of the jeans just wouldn’t move along like they did at the start.
Great, right? It gets even better. After a bit of cyber-stalking, I found that Greg had posted an awesome Ironman finish line jump that I LOVED and put up today over at Flying Jump Kicks. Check it out.
If I wasn’t already at 10 boyfriends, he’d be on the list. I’m willing to start sharing at this point. Hit me up if interested, Ladies, and I’ll see what I can do.

The final day is dedicated to all the rest of you! You are ALL my favorites. Whether you did a jog in jeans once, think that some day you might try it, or just laugh along with us – you are the best and I love all of you. Just as you are. Don’t change one little thing.
But I gotta list a few people by name. Thanks for promoting and appreciating the jogging-in-jeans cause in the way that you do. And, yes, I’m hoping you come to the ‘Burgh some day.
Gabe: No words needed.
Katy: She ran in jeans and then, although it was quickly abandoned, started a 12 Days of Christmas jeans-running streak. The fact that she attempted it earns her major love points from me. (However, I am using her experience as scientific evidence for why I won’t try this whole silly jogging-in-denim thing.)
Minka: If you read her blog, you’ll know that she is incredible and the type of person that you want to have around you.
Elisa: Another person that you want to have in your circle. Plus she sends me jean-jogging pictures all the time AND she doesn’t live THAT far away for a Pittsburgh trip.
Jen: I don’t want her to just visit, I want her to move to Pittsburgh so we can be real friends. Anyone who announces her pregnancy to the blogging world in this way is clearly awesome on so many levels.
Mary: I love her. My #1 site commenter! Woot woot!
I realized, while making this list, that there are oodles more of you that should be on it. So I’m calling this “Dedication Week – Part 1.” All of you, if I find out that you were in Pittsburgh without a heads-up…well, let’s just say that I better not find out [scrunched up nose and vicious evil eyes looking at Y.O.U].
And because I can’t have a post without a picture, enjoy JoggingJeans.com’s motivational poster #4:
You can see all of the past posters that are motivating you to jog in jeans here.

No jean-jogger list would be complete without Josher. His stats say it all: in 2012, he ran 17 races in denim (!) – a 5K, a 10K, 15 half marathons, and a marathon. He also is planning to run all his 2013 races in denim – all in the name of raising awareness and money for breast cancer research at Huntsman Cancer Institute through Huntsman Hometown Heros.
Hey, Josher! Pittsburgh Marathon? Some day?

The next featured runner of Dedication Week is another Dan who DEFINITELY is advancing the running-in-jorts cause. The best thing about Dan is that he brings smiles to the faces of race spectators and JoggingJeans.com viewers with his monikers, outfits, and sense of humor. Reminisce with me, will ya?
First we met Danny Disco:
Then Danny Dukes:
And Danny Denim (in the homemade calf sleeves!):
And Danny Dapper:
And then there was the moment when I found out that “Fabulous Jorts Man” was the same guy as the Dannys above. Mind. Blown.
And another great thing? Pittsburgh’s Great Race (a 10K on September 29th) is on Dan’s race calendar this year!!
Come on! Come to Pittsburgh! Everyone is doin’ it!
