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!

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 (!):

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.

…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!

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 JoggingJeans.com, 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!
