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:

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!

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:

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.
