“We Love Dan” Fan Club

[If you are new to the site, read the first post about Dan here]

I guess just repeatedly saying “step off” isn’t going to quell the rising estrogen storm that has been created around JoggingJeans.com’s new favorite jean-wearing jogger, Dan.

Therefore, the “We Love Dan” Fan Club has been created. Here are the rules of the club:

1. I am the president. You are all members. Be happy that I am permitting you to be a member — I seriously considered having a one person-only club.

2. You must attempt to love Dan as much as I do. This is hardly possible, but go ahead and give it a whirl.

3. You must follow him in his quest to run 12 marathons in 12 months in 12 states in 2012. Pictures from each race will be stolen from his website and posted here (see below for marathons 1-12). Based on requests to properly stalk him, his race schedule has been posted below.

4. You must try to convince Dan to run another one of his marathons this year in jeans. Our ultimate club goal is to get him and his friend to both wear them during the same race.

UPDATE: From his website, “But after my jeans outfit inspired by www.joggingjeans.com and all the love I got from my new friend, Jill, my days of running in denim are DEFINITELY NOT OVER!!!”

5. If you happen to be in the city where he is running a particular race and you happen to meet him, you can speak to him and hug him only if you first say, “I couldn’t possibly love you as much as Jill loves you.” And then the hug must not last for more than 3 seconds. No, 2 seconds only.

6. If you happen to get a picture of yourself with him, you can be one of the vice-presidents of the club. However, know that I will cut your face out the photo and put mine in its place before it is posted here.

7. If you ever get to meet his wife, you must buy her a drink and apologize for my behavior on my behalf.

Any other rules that I should consider?

  1. Does he have the full year schedule of his races? Too funny! Dan my have to switch to jean shorts come summer.

  2. You are too funny Jill. I bursted out in laughter while reading this. Dan is a cutie…oops (Apologies Dan’s wife, and Jill). :). Great post

    AWESOME! I will be at that Vegas Midnight Run! I might have to wear my FULL-DENIM, no?

  4. Maybe I will catch him at the Lake Placid marathon…

  5. SQUEEEE!! Josher and Dan in Las Vegas! Sean and Dan in Lake Placid! Oh my, we MUST make photos happen!!

  6. Did you catch on Dan’s blog that he wasn’t sure if his photos would make the cut for appearing on joggingjeans?? How could they not make the cut? So now he’s humble, too. I really am in love.

    Marathon per month
    Dan, the jogging in jeans man
    Will you marry me?

    • His humility was the first thing that made me love him. The second was that his jean-wearing recap didn’t require any grammar or spelling corrections.

      Get in line, Charla.
      The president gets first dibs.
      I am his next wife.

  7. I’ve never run a marathon in my life and am not sure I ever thought I would, but I’m starting to think December Vegas could be an awesome goal for all of us. Or maybe a half?

    • lol. I think following him across the country might cross over from innocent fun to crazy stalkers. Although…I WAS very disappointed to see that the Pittsburgh Marathon wasn’t on his calendar for May.

      • Is it creepy stalking when it’s to run with multiple people? (It would be to run with Josher too) I thought the group follow took some of the need-a-restraining-order feel out of it. 🙂

        It doesn’t matter, as the thought of running 26.2 miles brings tears to my eyes – from both laughter and fear. I’m having a tough time getting my butt up to do 6 today.

        • Haha. I guess calling it a group-run-get-together in order to cover up the true purpose isn’t AS bad. 🙂 I’m with you though on running a marathon or a half. Running goes from feeling great to feeling crappy consistently at around mile 7 for me.

    Uuuuuhm, what about his _friend_?!?!? Can I be in HIS Fan Club??

    • lol. What have I started here?
      His friend has yet to run in jeans, so I’m not a true fan yet. He’s all yours. 🙂

  9. Of course Beki! I told Dan I am going to takeover this fan base by running in denim overalls next time.

  10. EEEEEEEXCELLENT!! Just remember, I creepily stalked loved you first!
