This may possibly be the best comment JoggingJeans.com has ever received. I heart Carla for choosing to run in jeans for their practicality.
Then I got to thinking:
It is pretty freakin’ smart to run with a gun. Geez, so many threats: wild animals, attacking dogs, rapists, serial killers. For me, particularly, being tired at the end of a run added to my already slow-ass pace equals a recipe for disaster if faced with a threat.
But jeans? There probably has to be other options to hold a gun during a run. Right? There are!:
But are they as cool as tucking it into the front pocket of your 501s? Hells no.
I think we have found another reason to add to the list: running in jeans makes it easy to carry your gun.
[While searching for ways to carry a gun during runningI found this. Ack.]

It happened again this morning. A ridiculous number of people showed up at my gym IN JEANS. Gym friend, Sarah, and I were the oddballs in exercise clothing.
Sarah, aka Master of Stealth, is responsible for all of these pictures today.
UPDATE: Maybe Mary is right and Pittsburghers have lost their minds because of the snow. Today was the biggest snowfall day we have had all year. Right now, the view out my window:

CrossFitters = athletes that know how to rock fashion during workouts
Also, in the past, I wrote about CrossFitters in British Columbia who wore their best denim outfits to raise money for a children’s hospital there. A little taste of what you missed:

So we cover jogging regularly here at JoggingJeans.com, right? We have also seen people inappropriately wearing jeans while weight lifting, doing martial arts, on cardio equipment, and in CrossFit boxes. I feel like we have seen it all. Almost…
Cheerleading? In jeans!?
Why would ANYONE think this is a good idea? Men want glimpses of ass cheek. Cheerleaders want to be able to move freely. Neither of those things are happening in jeans.
And then have a look at these adorable, wholesome 1980’s cheerleaders in jeans:

January at gyms = my favorite time of year. No joke. And it has nothing to do with workout apparel (okay, maybe a little).
Resolutioners help to break up my grind – the week-after-week, month-after-month, year-after-year, gym grind that typically contains no fresh starts or earth-shattering new goals for me.
I am okay being elbow-to-elbow with you or waiting an extra minute for the equipment that you are using. You know why? Your fresh start is my fresh start. Your excitement is my excitement. I enjoy watching your early strength gains, your longer and longer runs on the treadmill, your smiles of accomplishment, your transforming bodies.
I hope you stick around. I hope you become more healthy. I hope you grow to love the gym as much as I do. (And, I hope you learn what is appropriate and what is not appropriate to wear to the gym.)
And…I LOVED this comment on a sign at my gym asking, “What will your legacy be?”

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 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!
