You all know of Coatman, right? The marathon runner who wears a winter coat (which is sometimes DENIM), a big tie, and dress shoes, and carries a tray topped with a bottle and glass, waiter-style? Yeah, he has completed over 125 marathons.
Apparently, the name for people that wear something or carry something that makes it considerably more difficult to finish a race are called “stunt runners.” I love me some stunt runners!
UPDATE: The runner known as Coatman left a comment (see below). And, yes, he did ask if I would be his agent. Levi’s, contact me, and let’s get something goin’ with you and the awesome Coatman!

One last denim running costume: here is my friend, Dan, at the Youngstown Peace Race as Winnie the Pooh. Check out all the spectators smiling at him. And don’t ask me how in the heck anyone can run a 10K wearing a cloth, full-headed mask.
Speaking of Dan, he also ran his first 50K (Haulin’ in the Holler) in what he is calling JOHTS (jorts over half tights). I have called tights “cheating” in the past – but I give a pass when you are pulling out a 50K in denim. Can I get an ‘amen’?

Hope you enjoyed the past two weeks of denim running costumes. Have an idea for your own costume with denim? Put it together, run a race, and SEND ME PICTURES!

And here is Whitney, Racing the States blogger, with two minions at the Halloween Hustle 5K in Littleton, CO:
So many cool ways to pull off a Minion costume. We have seen Minions here before! And again here.

Interestingly, I have a picture of the ACTUAL Bret Michaels running IN JEANS. It was one of my very first posts. Except for the hat, the runner above captured Bret Michaels perfectly.

Hello from Las Vegas! I am on vacation.
My tasks for today: hang out at the kick ass pool, stuff myself stupid with delicious food, try not to lose too much money.
Your task for the day: identify this costume for me. A zombie?

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.
