The last post got me thinking about all the different denim-inspired clothing we have seen here at JoggingJeans.com. It is important that you are reminded so when you see someone exercising in them, you aren’t duped into thinking they are the real thing.
The person that you see skiing in jeans might actually be wearing faux denim ski pants:
Oh, and who could forget PicNic Pants?
And do you remember the time I wore INKnBURNS’s denim look-a-like athletic pants, True Blue Performance Denim Capris, on a run, at the yoga studio, and at the gym? You’ll have to click the link to see the pictures of me.
Where were we? Oh, denim underwear are not jorts:
And, finally, the atrocious sandal boots are probably the closest thing we’ve seen to “real” jeans. And, certainly, they win the Most Hideous award.

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 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.
Any good vagina stories you want to share? Just kidding, I don’t want to hear about your vagina.

Denim is taking over my gym. I’m not sure exactly when it happened but, in the past two weeks, Sarah (who snapped this AWESOME photo of a guy sleeping) and I have been seeing people working out in them left and right.
Sarah called last Monday “jeans day” and texted me these two pictures:
Earlier in the week, I saw a guy lifting in jeans who clearly was JUST released from prison. Avoid taking pictures of a guys working out in jeans if they have face tattoos and look as if they have spent the last “8-10″ doing nothing but lifting weights for hours upon hours a day. #JustSayin
But I did see this girl on an elliptical IN JORTS:
And I have walked past this poster in the stairwell a bazillion times and never noticed that the guy in it is IN JEANS.

Thanks to everyone that weighed in on my Mad Men question. I started season 2.

Kelly, 3 Zigs and a Dog blogger, sent me these pictures of the Dodgin’ in Denim team that plays in her dodgeball league. Their uniforms are VINTAGE DENIM!

I should be an investigative reporter. I can piece shit together and get the story told. Especially when it comes to something that I am passionate about – like marathon runners in jorts.
I stumbled upon this picture in a gallery of photos dedicated to last month’s Twin Cities Marathon. After unsuccessfully trying to blow up the photo to get a better look, I wondered to myself, “Are those jorts?”
Then I found the blog of a spectator at the marathon who shared this observation:
11:45 – A guy wearing a headband, midriff-exposing t-shirt, and cut-off jorts (that is jean shorts for you non-hip folks) runs into our station. After he grabs his third Dixie cup of Corona, I wonder if we will need to cut him off. But after pounding it in record fashion, he runs off – on pace to finish 30 minutes faster than I ever did while wearing proper running shorts and properly hydrating with water and Gatorade.
1. I gotta find this jort-wearing, Corona-drinking hunk of man.
2. CNN, call me. I can start tomorrow.
