Motoring in khakis

We’ve got another runner in khakis and belt sighting caught by Inspired by Dooce blogger, Kristin, in Montreal. These pictures were lost in my inbox and are a great reminder of warmer and sunnier times [just 57 days until spring!].



Thanks and sorry for the delay, Kristin!

Turkey Trottin’

A big thanks to Jenn who sent me two pictures from her Thanksgiving morning Turkey Trot in Berlin, Wisconsin.

First is a guy in jogging khakis:

And a woman getting ready to run in a denim skirt (!):

Imagine his sweat-soaked underwear

It is hard enough mustering up the energy to do any exercise outside when the temperature is holy-hell-it’s-hot-as-shit degrees with humidity at sweet-mama percent. But to EVEN consider running IN REGULAR CLOTHES when you can’t move for 10 seconds outdoors without ending up with sweat-soaked underwear is BEYOND my comprehension.

BTW, have I said recently that @BekiLynne is the most awesome girl I know? One, BAM! Two, BAM! And now three!

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 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.

“Gotta get a workout in before my meeting…”

…but there is no time to change into appropriate workout clothes, so I’ll just lift weights in my cable-knit sweater, khakis, and dress shoes.”


Thanks to Stealthy Sue who was able to snap his photo at her gym!

No, this isn’t fuzzy picture week.

I wonder if I need to take out extra insurance to cover me if someone, during the course of trying to get a photo for, gets injured or murdered? First there was Andy, who risked death but ultimately survived, to get a picture.  And now Joe.

Remember Joe? He sent me a picture of a guy running past his house in khakis. He is a loyal soldier in the ever-pressing cause known as “photographing those in poor exercise attire.” He feels khaki/cargo-wear is as bad as jean-wear for exercise and proposed that I launch a sister-site with people exercising in khakis. As an interim step, I’ve added a “khaki/cargo-wear” category.

Joe also risked his life in the name of getting  photo. He snapped the picture below. It is fuzzy because he was pretending to stretch while taking the picture of a COP who, Joe wrote, “would have killed me if I got caught” [or maybe arrested him!].

Thank you, Joe, for your braveness and loyalty. Be safe out there with your cameras, Friends!
