Tough shit if you are sick of Sean Hutchinson. As long as he continues to run races IN JEANS, his pictures will fill this blog. The latest pictures come from the Deloitte Pretoria Marathon in South Africa this past weekend. After four posts, he just won himself his own category on JoggingJeans.com.

And for the person whose running clothing caused Sean to stop and take a photo:

Yep, those are camos and boots!

Stilettos + jorts = FAIL

I don’t know why there are always a large proportion of jean-wearers during stiletto races. Examples: Ladies, this post is for you. Men, this post is for you.

My guess is that the thinking goes something like this, “If I’m going to run in something as ridiculous as stilettos, I might as well pair them with something as ridiculous as jeans.”

Or in this case, “…something as ridiculous as jorts.”

(FYI, the link where I originally found these pictures is now dead)

We start with a disclaimer.

DISCLAIMER: I wrote several posts yesterday, some time after I took two muscle relaxers and an expired Percocet (you stand hunched over painting boards for a bazillion hours and see how your back feels). Today, in my clear-headed state, I can say that the posts are unpublishable except for this one that I found mildly amusing. So here it is edited for poor grammar only:

Something weird is happening to me. I am starting to dig guys that jog in jeans. Not dork hipsters running in skinny jeans. Definitely not chicks. Not anyone in jorts (except Josh). And not douche-bags in the gym in jeans. Just straight-up guy runners that are eschewing the over-hyped, over-priced running-gear clothing market and going all rugged and Marboro Man. I’m starting to dig them.

I realized this change in me when my first thought, when seeing this picture sent to me via Twitter by @dbbernard, wasn’t, “What a weirdo!” or “Haha. Look at him running in jeans!” But rather, “Who is this beautiful man running in jeans?” I might need therapy.

The picture was taken during the Q50 10K Full Moon Trail Run on February 11, 2012 in Mandeville, La.

What is the saying? Our true self comes out when we are hopped up on expired prescription pills?

Go read. Don’t wait.

You know when someone recommends [enter item here] and says, “Oh, you will like this”? And then soon thereafter another person says, “Hey, [enter your name here], you need to check out [enter same item here]”? And then a third person says, “[enter same item here] is right up your alley”? Then you finally check out [enter item here], and are pissed at yourself that you didn’t listen to the first person that recommended it and you feel like you’ve been missing out?

The latest time that the above has happened to me is with the blog Steve in a Speedo?! Gross!

To all you “friends” that knew about this little treasure trove of awesomeness and DIDN’T tell me about it, I’m re-evaluating our so-called friendship. Seriously.

Go read. Don’t wait. I guarantee that you’ll enjoy the musings of a seemingly great guy – athlete, father, funnyman, and wearer of…um…jorts during races.

Got your flannel? Your jeans? You ready to race?

Couldn’t agree more, Erik…couldn’t agree more.

Love me and I will love you right back even more

BekiLynne‘s Twitter tagline is spot on. She REALLY is as awesome as she claims. BekiLynne, you should add “adorable” and “owner of cute shirts” to your description.

You know why she is the most awesome girl I know? Because she sent me the following picture from the Customer Appreciation Week fun run at Playmakers in Lansing, MI held this past Monday AND shared her love of JoggingJeans.com on Twitter.

Thanks for the love!

Jeans and khakis at The Color Run in Dallas!

Did you hear about The Color Run? If not, watch this video.

Reader PJ ran the Dallas race this past Sunday and submitted two photos. Not one but TWO! You all can learn a little from PJ about submitting photos — she is more awesome than most because of her two photo submission.

The first picture is of a guy in jeans. The second is a way-funnier (at least to me) guy in khakis. Dude looks like he stumbled upon the race on his way home from work in his khakis, belt, and bright white button-down.

I personally think that the creative ideas that people come up with for races are great. The JoggingJeans.com-inspired Jorts 5K (10 days to go!) is by far the BEST idea, but there are some other pretty damn cute race themes out there. In second place behind the Jorts 5K is this idea.

4 months, 123 pictures, and 20,000 views!

JoggingJeans.com was started just over four months ago as a JOKE – a joke between me and my dear husband. Today, the same week of the four month anniversary, JoggingJeans.com received its 20,000th view. 20,000 times someone has wanted look at pictures of people jogging and exercising…IN JEANS!

I have something to say to all of you:  I love you and I thank you. I love you because it is heart-warming that you enjoy the ridiculous of it all along with me. I also thank you because you do the heavy work – you are taking the photos and sending them to me. Your pictures, comments, and emails bring joy to my life. [Hugs.]

To recap the past four months, I thought I’d share with you some of my favorite pictures that you have sent and my favorite posts:

THE greatest jogging in jeans “footage” in existence.

“But, Officer, we always jog in jeans with construction materials in our arms.”

Race number, check. Running shoes, check. Purple sparkly leotard, check. Jeans, check.

Running in a denim jacket ← a favorite only because of the BEAUTIFUL man in the photo. Hubba-hubba.

Chuck Norris kicks ass IN JEANS

And since everyone asks, here is the description of the moment that the idea for JoggingJeans.com came into existence:

My husband and I were waiting for the start of a Pittsburgh 5K that started on the Clemente bridge (I think it was the Pittsburgh Charities 5K Home Run). There was a guy in front of us, stretching and looking as if he was preparing to run IN JEANS. We said to each other, “What the heck!?” and “He HAS to be here just waiting for the start of a race with a ‘real’ runner, right?” When they guy turned around and we saw the race number pinned to his shirt, we started laughing. I said, “I wish I had a camera.” My husband said, “That would be a good idea for a website – people could send in pictures of people running in jeans.” A few months later, I pulled some pictures off the web and started it just a joke between the two of us. The next thing I know people were submitting photos, Runner’s World was linking to it, and here we are 20,000+ views later.

So to the man, in jeans, stretching and preparing to run the beautiful North Shore of Pittsburgh on that April morning, this blog came about all because of you! [Hug.]

Freak what you feel, My Friend

My new favorite phrase.

Old men working out in jeans

It may be just me, but I think old guys working out in jeans are adorable. The old guy running in a previous post and this cutie photographed by Torie (@toraaaye) are perfect examples:
