From 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.

Good morning, Class. Welcome.
Davide, a follower from Italy, has been brightening my days by sending me pictures of himself running in a variety of costumes.* He REALLY made my day last month when he sent pictures from the Dieci Miglia di Maria Luigia (Google Translate helped me out: Maria Luidia 10 Miler).
Look closely at the pictures below. Davide does everything right: jorts, belt, dress shirt, big smile, and then sent race photos to me at JoggingJeans@gmail.com. Learn from this star student.
The second photo sure looks like a good one for a JoggingJeans.com Motivational Poster background. Anyone wanna take a stab at creating the next one?
* As a result of Davide’s dedication to making me happy, I am dedicating three full weeks (!) over at BestRaceCostumes to his race costume photos. Head over there now and enjoy.

In the past, people have sent me signs from their gyms that I have categorized as “Gym Signs that Suck.” My new (#badass Las Vegas) gym doesn’t have a sign but it does have a list of rules. There is one rule in particular that sucks. See #4.
My first thoughts to share:
- So. Much. Sun. My body hasn’t seen this much vitamin D in my entire life.
- On my first day here, I got a little sunburn drinking coffee on my porch at 7:00 IN THE MORNING!
- One day, I thought there were clouds in the sky but it was actually smoke from a house fire a mile away.
- Goodbye seasonal affective disorder! Hello life of applying sunscreen every single day!

There 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:
And 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.

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:
