Not sure if jogging in jeans is right for you? Here is a way to ease into it:

Sometimes people run IN JEANS because of love, friendship, and support

Awhile ago, I wrote a series of post about the reasons that people run in jeans. The countdown went something like this:

1. Forgetfulness. As in the person got to the race or the gym and had an “oh crap, I forgot my gear” moment and just made due with what they were wearing.

2. Commitment to a cause. Remember Josher and Denim for a Cure? Where have you been, Josh?

3. Dedication. Think not wanting to break a run streak.

4. Cultural differences. Yeah, not everyone in the world can afford $40 running shorts.

5. Awesomeness.

But there is a reason I forgot: love, friendship, and/or support. Janae’s (aka Hungry Runner Girl) sister ran miles 20.5-26.2 of the Utah Valley Marathon with her IN JEANS AND FLIP FLOPS!

HRGI guess we COULD put this in the Awesomeness category – ’cause, yeah, her sister is awesome. But I like my new “Love, Friendship, and Support” category. How about you?

Run (in Jeans) Just Because

Run Just Because blogger left this comment on a recent post and it MADE MY DAY.

Back when I was in military service, we had a fitness test that involved a 2.4km run. In order to get an “A” for that part of the test, we had to run it in under 9:45. A month before the test I was doing 11 minutes. I spent the next four weeks doing 3-4km runs in my heavy field boots and jeans till I could clear the 2.4k in 10 minutes. On test day, I ditched the jeans and boots for PT kit and runners and ran 9:15. Success from running in jeans!

Write that down. Remember it.

The only thing WORSE than flip flops at the gym

WTF

If you wear flip-flops at the gym, I might hate you…

…and secretly wish you would drop a weight on your foot.
