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

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.]

People are so creative. That is all.

Running Costumes with Denim – Laverne and Shirley

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.

Running Costumes with Denim – Hippie

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. Denim

What, what, what’s up!??!

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]

Wordpress

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.

A way to ease into jogging in jeans

Not sure if jogging in jeans is right for you? Here is a way to ease into it:

MileyAll we need is for Miley Cyrus to go for a run in these badboys and she will be the OFFICIAL poster child for jogging in jeans. ‘Cause she already did it once. Oh wait, twice.

Sometimes people run IN JEANS because of love, friendship, and support

Awhile ago, I wrote a series of post about the reasons that people run in jeans. The countdown went something like this:

1. Forgetfulness. As in the person got to the race or the gym and had an “oh crap, I forgot my gear” moment and just made due with what they were wearing.

2. Commitment to a cause. Remember Josher and Denim for a Cure? Where have you been, Josh?

3. Dedication. Think not wanting to break a run streak.

4. Cultural differences. Yeah, not everyone in the world can afford $40 running shorts.

5. Awesomeness.

But there is a reason I forgot: love, friendship, and/or support. Janae’s (aka Hungry Runner Girl) sister ran miles 20.5-26.2 of the Utah Valley Marathon with her IN JEANS AND FLIP FLOPS!

HRGI guess we COULD put this in the Awesomeness category – ’cause, yeah, her sister is awesome. But I like my new “Love, Friendship, and Support” category. How about you?
