Run (in Jeans) Just Because

Run Just Because blogger left this comment on a recent post and it MADE MY DAY.

Back when I was in military service, we had a fitness test that involved a 2.4km run. In order to get an “A” for that part of the test, we had to run it in under 9:45. A month before the test I was doing 11 minutes. I spent the next four weeks doing 3-4km runs in my heavy field boots and jeans till I could clear the 2.4k in 10 minutes. On test day, I ditched the jeans and boots for PT kit and runners and ran 9:15. Success from running in jeans!

Write that down. Remember it.

Ask the All-Knowing Running Expert (me)

People should come to me for running advice.

Question Asker: Jill, I haven’t set a new PR in awhile. Any advice for me?

Ask-the-expertMe: Try running in jorts.

Question Asker: Huh?

Me: Do it.

Question Asker: But…

Me: Shut up.

Next!

Question Asker: Jill, I’d love a first place finisher’s medal at my upcoming race. What can I do?

Me: Wear jorts at the race.

Question Asker: That doesn’t make any sense.

Me: Shut up.

I’d then tell them both that there is evidence already that there is REAL running power in denim.

And if they still don’t believe me then I’ll say, “The following things happened JUST YESTERDAY, Bitches!!”:

Anyone else think, “Why are his jorts on backwards?”

How long is it going to take for you to learn, My Friends? Wear jorts. Run your heart out. Reap the rewards. (Don’t forget the most important part: take pictures and send them to me). Do it.
