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

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:

Do you know the runner known as Coatman?

You all know of Coatman, right? The marathon runner who wears a winter coat (which is sometimes DENIM), a big tie, and dress shoes, and carries a tray topped with a bottle and glass, waiter-style? Yeah, he has completed over 125 marathons.

CoatmanApparently, the name for people that wear something or carry something that makes it considerably more difficult to finish a race are called “stunt runners.” I love me some stunt runners!

UPDATE: The runner known as Coatman left a comment (see below). And, yes, he did ask if I would be his agent. Levi’s, contact me, and let’s get something goin’ with you and the awesome Coatman!

 

Running Costumes with Denim – Winnie the Pooh

One last denim running costume: here is my friend, Dan, at the Youngstown Peace Race as Winnie the Pooh. Check out all the spectators smiling at him. And don’t ask me how in the heck anyone can run a 10K wearing a cloth, full-headed mask.

PoohSpeaking of Dan, he also ran his first 50K (Haulin’ in the Holler) in what he is calling JOHTS (jorts over half tights). I have called tights “cheating” in the past – but I give a pass when you are pulling out a 50K in denim. Can I get an ‘amen’?

Running Costumes with Denim – Bret Michaels

FakeBretInterestingly, I have a picture of the ACTUAL Bret Michaels running IN JEANS. It was one of my very first posts. Except for the hat, the runner above captured Bret Michaels perfectly.

Running Costumes with Denim = Name the costume!

Hello from Las Vegas! I am on vacation.

My tasks for today: hang out at the kick ass pool, stuff myself stupid with delicious food, try not to lose too much money.

Your task for the day: identify this costume for me. A zombie?
