There is nothing on this earth that brings me a childhood comfort like the television show Dukes of Hazzard. [SCREEECH]. Back up. “Uh, what?” you ask. “Jill, you are pathetic” you say. Let me explain.
Television in my childhood was a treat. My sister and I would wait all week for Friday night. My dad would either make popcorn – old-school style in a pot on the stovetop – or we would take a ride to Hills and buy it beforehand. [The popcorn at the Hills Snackbar was delicious. Was Hills just a Pittsburgh thing?] Sitting on the floor in front of the television, that was carried from my parent’s bedroom into the living room, with big bowls of popcorn on our laps watching the handsome Duke Boys, pretty Daisy, and being naive to the contentiousness of the confederate flag: nothing better.
Boy that was a long story to get to some of my favorite jogging in jeans costume photos EVER:
First, there is the creative and amazing Andy who ran as this, this, and this in the past. He sent me a picture from his most recent race. Notice the jorts. So. Much. Love.
And since we are on the subject, here is another from the archives:
Again, jeans and jorts. Love. Love. Love.
I can only hope that the microphone and speaker in Luke’s hand is so he can yell “Yeeee Ha!” as he ran.

We continue this week with more race costumes that involve denim.
If Kanye West fans are asking about “newcomer” Paul McCartney, I’m guessing that my young viewers are gonna be all, “Who is Laverne? Who is Shirley?”
Kids, here is your lesson for the day.

I have said it before: there is no better way to try out jogging in jeans than to run in a denim-inspired costume for your next race. Fortunately for you, I have amassed a large collection of possibilities. Do it. Make it your resolution for 2015. Take pictures and send them to me.

I am a fan of Chicago and could easily rattle off the 87 reasons why I like it there. But since I know you really don’t care, I will save you needless scrolling and get right to the new reason that was added to my list.
87. Chicagoans, when given the chance, will run in denim.
Evidence is in last month’s Chicago Monster Dash.
Not sure if this is a costume or just a super-cool dude running in jeans:
Not sure if this is a costume either, but running in a dress and a denim jacket equals a whole lot of love from me:
Adorable. No additional words needed:

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?
