I did it at the end of 2013. I am doing it again this year – sharing with all of you the ridiculous non-denim, gym apparel pictures and gym funnies that have been shared with me throughout 2014.
Thanks for visiting and loving me in 2014. Happy New Year!

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:

Planning to commit a crime? Don’t have a partner to serve as a getaway driver? There is no better way to practice fleeing a crime scene than by running in jeans. I mean this HAS to be what these people are doing, right?

Most of you: “I sign up for races to keep me motivated and on track with my training. I need to have a goal.” [creates detailed training schedule and does a fairly good job of sticking to it]
Me (phase 1): “I sign up for races to keep me motivated and on track with my training. I need to have a goal.” [creates detailed training schedule]
Me (phase 2): “Running feels so terrible. I will wait a bit and begin training closer to race day.” [reworks training schedule]
Me (phase 3): “Why should I be miserable during training runs AND during the race? Why not be miserable just once on race day?” [violently rips up training schedule]
Me (race day): “I hate myself so much.”
If you couldn’t tell, 2014 has been the year of running races untrained. The particular races where I sucked at running? Here ya go:
- 2014 Pittsburgh Half Marathon (May)
- Great Race 10K (September)
- Pittsburgh EQT 10 miler (last week)
In Maybe Marathoner fashion, here is the analysis of the last few moments of last week’s race:But, the good news is that the weight lifter in me has been rockin’ in at the gym. Showing up every morning as the doors are unlocked and bouncing
from my pre-workout drink of who-knows-what chemicals to get started. And then very once in awhile, I get a gym bonus – today’s was seeing this lovely lady in her embroidered-pocket jeans on the elliptical.

…I see jeans and underpants. At the gym.

You all know that I have a thing for cutie old guys at the gym, right? Put one IN JEANS and suspenders and I am in L.O.V.E.
If your heart also melts a little when you see this, here is another that was submitted awhile back for your viewing enjoyment.

Pick your greeting preference: [fist bump] [big smile] [hug] [smooch right on your lips] [all of the above]. Granted.
In case you were wondering, I am not dead, but rather I have been months-flying-by-in-the-blink-of-an-eye BUSY. But life is good, health is good, and new job is busy but really really good. All caught up? Oh, yeah, I haven’t jogging in jeans yet. Don’t be disappointed in me.
And while I SUPER appreciated all your, “How are you?!” and “Where have you been?!” emails and social media shout-outs, WordPress has not been paying attention. They congratulated me on my third anniversary with a “Keep up the good blogging!” message. Little does WordPress know, their message was translated into a big fat dose of lack-of-blogging guilt. [sigh]
So I am going to try to be better. My inbox is loaded with jeans-worn-inappropriately-during-exercise pictures. In my head, posts are written; I just gotta type them out. But do know that I have been reading all your blogs and following along in your lives even though I haven’t commented as much as I would like. I am going to try to be better.
And because I know the REAL reason why you are here, enjoy the picture of my friend Andrew (who I sadly had to MISS on his trip through Pittsburgh in September) in his gorgeous pose for the 100on100 Relay in August. And, yes, those are jorts.
