Imagine if you had a traumatic brain injury for a moment.
Okay, I know this isn’t usual JoggingJeans.com lightheartedness, but bear with me for a second.
Imagine if you had a traumatic brain injury. What would you do?
I know I would not take on the feat of running from one side of Canada to the other in order to raise awareness for Traumatic Brain Injury Survivors, that is for sure.
But, David McGuire, that is what he did and called it a “Run to Remember.” And this is AFTER David’s family was told that he may never walk or talk again. One year after his injury, he ran his first marathon. And soon thereafter pulled off the amazing feat of running a marathon a day across Canada, departing from St. John’s Newfoundland and completed his amazing feat 8 1/2 months later in Victoria.
So why am I telling you this? Just wait:

Although I missed him when I was on the sidelines cheering on my new friend, Andrew, there was another runner at the Pittsburgh Marathon 5K in denim.
I need your help…
- If I get $100, I’ll run in jeans. Whoever breaks the $100 threshold decides whether those jeans are cut offs, and if so, how short.
- If I break $200, I’ll wear a suit and tie. I have no idea what the weather will be like. But i’ll be the best dressed runner, I assure you.
- If I break $300, I’ll skip the entire last mile. No, not bail out, I mean skip like in hop scotch. For a mile.
- Guess what, I’m on call for work next weekend too. It’s only fitting then, if I break $400, I’ll open a conference call and give all donors the info to dial in and I’ll give live progress updates for the duration of the race.
- If I break $500, I will do ALL OF THE THINGS.
You all have heard me talk about the L.I.V.I.N.G Ministry before. It’s one of the best ministries to the homeless, struggling, hungry, and forgotten public in Pittsburgh. Not only the mission, but the staff are by far the most focused, compassionate, and passionate people I’ve ever encountered.
Apparently, he met is $500 fundraising goal. Here is a picture of him running IN JEANS and a suit jacket:
And here he is skipping across the finish line:
Josh, contact me. We are destined to be friends.

Hi. I’m taking a quick break from my blogging hiatus to share with you what I saw today.
I am on vacation in a resort in the beautiful wilderness of Vermont. My days have been spent resting, relaxing, recharging, and taking in the GORGEOUS beauty of this state.
Today, we took a ride to the city of Burlington and while walking from historic Church Street to Burlington Waterfront Park, a guy IN jeans ran past us!

I’ve said it before: the best part of having this website is the awesome people that I have met through it. This weekend, I got to meet IN PERSON three people I’ve previously only known online.
They are in town for the Pittsburgh Marathon!
While we are all registered for the half marathon tomorrow, Andrew was also registered for this morning’s 5K. We had plans to meet near the start line. And guess what?
ANDREW SHOWS UP FOR THE RACE IN JORTS!! How great is that? Besides being super-impressed with Pittsburgh and telling me how much you love it, this is next in line for the best way to make me happy.
He had a great run with no reports of chafing. I am officially his biggest fan.
After today’s 5K, Andrew is now a “Runner of Steel.” Charla, Tracey, and I will hopefully earn our titles tomorrow. Send prayers and good vibes our way.

Okay. I have no idea what that means but I wanted to use it.
Love ya, Dave. I’ll say it again: You need to write more.

Part of me says, “Finally! An excuse to post pictures of shirtless buff guys on my site.”
The other part of me says, “What the hell kind of gym lets people workout shirtless and IN JEANS?!”
If you missed my previous post that had shirtless men in it, you can catch it here.
