It is not a title-tease. JoggingJeans.com does not disappoint, my testosterone-infused viewers.

butt Camila Alves (with Matthew McConaughey).
Both are, oddly, running in jeans.

Edmonton Thunder Track and Field Club called it “Jeans 400.” The rules were clear:
It is simple, one lap of the outdoor track or two laps of the indoor track, from a standing start, wearing nothing but you most stylish jeans and footwear of your choice (spikes, runners, flats, work boots, slippers everything goes). NO shirts (ladies are allowed to wear a sports bra, if they choose to), no cut offs jeans, no synthetics, no knock offs. Jeans must be 100% full length denim. And of course the objective is to win! As in fastest time takes the title!
And the laugh out loud statement: Cause running in jeans makes you look extra fast!!
The dates say 2007. They called it an “inaugural” event. Emails went unanswered. Joggingjeans.com readers are wondering if this awesome event is still around.

Old people who jog are awesome no matter what they wear. Don’t laugh at them.

Today’s photo was submitted by Josh, a runner and incredible photographer, and taken during the 2008 San Francisco marathon.
So we all agree that it is weird to run a marathon in jeans, right? But it is WAY more weird to run a marathon carrying an obviously heavy bag on your back. Isn’t marathon running hard enough?
Is it possible that this couple just robbed a bank, the bag is filled with stacks of 100s, and they thought the SF marathon would be good cover for their get-away?
It made me think of these cute bank robber costumes posted over on Best Race Costumes recently.

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.

Another BIG thanks to Michelle over at RunningConfessions.blogspot.com for her mad jean-spotting skills at races. This one is from Sunday’s Detroit Free Press Marathon.

As you can imagine, I see A LOT of different race costumes (and race signs for that matter). I am always impressed when something creative and new emerges. If you are a Walking Dead fan, you can appreciate this costume. The fact that the runners are in jeans just makes it all the better.
Thanks, All, for hanging out with me this week. As always, send your Halloween race costumes pictures to JoggingJeans@gmail.com.

Okay, so not REAL denim, but I loved the costume idea!
