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.
Running Haiku‘s Charla came all the way from Seattle. Stride and Joy‘s Tracey and her husband, Andrew, are in from Boston.
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.
Look at that form!
Supporting his hometown in his Boston Marathon shirt.
Post-race looking like he didn’t even run!
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.

Do I really need more words than those in the title above?
I guess I should tell you the race: Ragnar Relay Cape Cod and where I found the photo: here.

Can we agree that the jeans-in-the-gym situation is getting out of hand?

The pictures are in! The pictures are in! The pictures are in of Jort House Mafia at Sunday’s KELLY St. Patrick’s Shamrock 5K in Baltimore.
And, yes, that is Mike rockin’ GREEN JORTS. And the chick in the second picture wearing jean skirt overalls? Too awesome for words.
With this post, Jorts House Mafia officially earned it’s own category on JoggingJeans.com. To see the previous posts (worth a look, they are some of my favorites), click here.
UPDATE: At least one jort-wearer (bib #73 and Boyfriend #9) ACTUALLY did some running. Proof:
