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.

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.]

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.

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]
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.

Because there IS evidence of the real running power of denim. And more here for those of you that still aren’t convinced.

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