Get your denim. Get your scissors. Cut your denim. Wear your denim. Run in your denim. #JortsMile2014

Can I say again how much I LOVE the guys and gals over at Wingate University? The second annual Jorts Mile was yesterday and here are some teaser photos to keep you entertained until I can get my hands on more.

The SIGN! The sign is made out of pairs of jeans!

So magnificent! Wanna bet that the smile on my face is bigger than yours?

If you missed the ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC photos from last year’s race, check them out here.

Take my shorts? No problem.

The Pyongyang Marathon in North Korea last week marked the first time that foreign runners have been allowed to race.

And when a runner showed up and had his clothes confiscated because the logos on his shorts were too large, I bet you can guess what he did:

MarathonRock on!

What exactly are you doing, Man at my Gym In Jeans?

[For those of you who aren’t gym-goers, you are supposed to sit on the seat that he is straddling and face the opposite direction to work your triceps.]

Boots, loafers, and Crocs, Oh My.

It is quite disturbing how quickly I can accumulate pictures of guys working out in jeans and inappropriate shoes.DressShoes

The “+ More” = Red Rock Canyon

My trip to Las Vegas was wonderful. It felt like I was gone for a month and, as hoped, relaxed and stuffed myself stupid (the evidence: I gained 6 pounds in a week – ugh!). But I am here to share with you a little gem that can be found about 20 miles outside of Vegas called Red Rock Canyon. It was breathtaking. If you get a chance to go there for a little sightseeing or hiking, do it. It will be a welcomed break from the casino chaos. It is even the site of what I think would be a pretty spectacular half marathon.

Running Costumes with Denim – Winnie the Pooh

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.

PoohSpeaking 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’?

Running Costumes with Denim – Bret Michaels

FakeBretInterestingly, 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.
