Ultimate Frisbee done right = Cotton Kills

Some awesome snippets from a recent email from my new boyfriend, Stephen:

Well, it isn’t exactly jogging but I captain an Ultimate Frisbee team named Cotton Kills and our uniforms are denim.  The more the better.  Overalls, cutoffs, dresses, hats, we have all varieties.

Our undefeated team is rejecting technical fabrics in lieu of good old fashioned denim ’cause it looks and feels right.

Our motto: Wool chafes, polyester smells, Cotton Kills!

TeamThe dog!

Cotton Kills reminds me so much of the dodgeball team I featured before: Dodgin’ in Denim. Don’t you think?

A quick lesson on jogging in jeans

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.

Class dismissed.

Jorts2The 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.

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.

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:

KissMe

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.]

CrossFit Love

CrossFitters = athletes that know how to rock fashion during workouts

Crossfit2Also, in the past, I wrote about CrossFitters in British Columbia who wore their best denim outfits to raise money for a children’s hospital there. A little taste of what you missed:

Of course you need a nice belt to hold up your jeans at the gym
