“Looking good is half the battle.”

Once again, I am in love.

Jesse Weber , aka the Unweary Traveler, ran the Antelope Canyon 50 Mile Ultramarathon in February.

He didn’t train. In fact, he never ran a full marathon before.

Along the way, Jesse called one aid station an “all-you-can-eat buffet.” He also fueled with a grilled cheese sandwich, a quesadilla, and Oreo cookies.

He drank Pabst Blue Ribbon during the race.

He wore JORTS and said these things about them:

“Jean-shorts are the ultimate in aerodynamic design and athletic fit, not to mention style.”

“No one realizes how practical [jean shorts] are.” 

“Looking good is half the battle.”

I love San Francisco

Hi again! Didn’t think you would hear from me again so soon, did ya? Surprise!

I was in San Francisco for a few weeks last month and just LOVED LOVED LOVED it there. And I felt this way BEFORE I saw a guy mid-run rockin’ headphones, a sweatshirt, running shoes, and JEANS! He was right in front of me when I stepped out of a restaurant after lunch and by the time could get my phone out, this was what I was able to capture:

SFJeansAnd then in one of my tourist mode moments, I went to Fisherman’s Wharf. Imagine my delight when I saw a giant pair of jeans on the side of a building. It made me think of all of you and how I need to get caught up on all of your blogs/lives.

Today’s word o’ the day

Ready for another smile today?

NorthernEchoFrom The Northern Echo:

Richy Wade, from Darlington, attended the [Newton Aycliffe 10k] at the town’s Greenfield Community College with his family to take part in the 3k fun run which takes place alongside the main race.

After completing the short course, he decided to watch the 10k runners set off – and got so excited he joined in, even though he had not registered in advance.

He ended up running the route in a highly creditable time of 49 minutes – while wearing jeans and clutching his number from the fun run in his hand.

Dukes of Hazzard Love

TVThere is nothing on this earth that brings me a childhood comfort like the television show Dukes of Hazzard. [SCREEECH]. Back up. “Uh, what?” you ask. “Jill, you are pathetic” you say. Let me explain.

Television in my childhood was a treat. My sister and I would wait all week for Friday night. My dad would either make popcorn – old-school style in a pot on the stovetop – or we would take a ride to Hills and buy it beforehand. [The popcorn at the Hills Snackbar was delicious. Was Hills just a Pittsburgh thing?] Sitting on the floor in front of the television, that was carried from my parent’s bedroom into the living room, with big bowls of popcorn on our laps watching the handsome Duke Boys, pretty Daisy, and being naive to the contentiousness of the confederate flag: nothing better.

Boy that was a long story to get to some of my favorite jogging in jeans costume photos EVER:

First, there is the creative and amazing Andy who ran as this, this, and this in the past. He sent me a picture from his most recent race. Notice the jorts. So. Much. Love.

DukesAnd since we are on the subject, here is another from the archives:

Again, jeans and jorts. Love. Love. Love.

I can only hope that the microphone and speaker in Luke’s hand is so he can yell “Yeeee Ha!” as he ran.

Jogging in Jeans Emoji

Of course I will kiss you, Mr. Jort-Wearing Irishman

There is something about St. Patrick’s Day races that makes people think, “I will run in jorts.” In the past, this happened. And then, over the weekend in Pensacola, FL, there was this:

Jogging in jeans recipe for deliciousness

What is the recipe for a truly GREAT jogging in jeans photo, you ask? The one that ensures deliciousness? Quit searching Pinterest for it – I have it right here for you:

INGREDIENTS

1. Full length jeans

2. An action shot (yes, running, for those of you who are slow to catch on)

3. Above the waist nudity (hotness helps)

4. A belt with a ridiculously-sized belt buckle (Dan nailed this one. Where have you been, Dan?!)

5. Bare feet

6. Celebrity status

DIRECTIONS

Add all ingredients to bowl. Stir. Scrape the sides. Lick the spatula. Stir again. Pour into prepared baking pan. Lick the spatula again. Lick the bowl. Bake.

And you get…Scott Eastwood

ScottEastwoodYIELD: 1. All for me.

If you are tempted to lick your screen. Go for it. I did. I am not ashamed.

Another reason to run in jeans!

CommentThis 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!:

RunWithAGunBut 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.]

Reason #87 why Chicago is awesome

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:
