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:
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.
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:

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:
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
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
YIELD: 1. All for me.
If you are tempted to lick your screen. Go for it. I did. I am not ashamed.

This 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!:
But 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.]

So we cover jogging regularly here at JoggingJeans.com, right? We have also seen people inappropriately wearing jeans while weight lifting, doing martial arts, on cardio equipment, and in CrossFit boxes. I feel like we have seen it all. Almost…
Cheerleading? In jeans!?
Why would ANYONE think this is a good idea? Men want glimpses of ass cheek. Cheerleaders want to be able to move freely. Neither of those things are happening in jeans.
And then have a look at these adorable, wholesome 1980’s cheerleaders in jeans:

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 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:
