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.]

Wonder if she would have been faster than @DavidRoadRunner without the jorts?

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

I don’t know you, but I love you. Lots.

A race with a Jazziest Jorts Award

Trish told me about it. I told you about it. The Canton Liberty Run was held on June 14th. The theme was is “Stars, Stripes, and Jorts.”

Despite my rockin’ cyber searching skilz, I was only able to find a few pictures from the event. Fortunately, they are FABULOUS pictures:

Race Directors! It is TIME for a denim-only run. Contact me. I have a bazillion brilliant ideas swimming around in my head.

Get your denim. Get your scissors. Cut your denim. Wear your denim. Run in your denim. #JortsMile2014

Can I say again how much I LOVE the guys and gals over at Wingate University? The second annual Jorts Mile was yesterday and here are some teaser photos to keep you entertained until I can get my hands on more.

The SIGN! The sign is made out of pairs of jeans!

So magnificent! Wanna bet that the smile on my face is bigger than yours?

If you missed the ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC photos from last year’s race, check them out here.

Races that MUST be on your calendars + More

There are three upcoming races that you MUST know about:

  1. My ABSOLUTE FAVORITE group of denim runners are again heading to the Kelly St. Patrick’s Shamrock 5K this year with the team name of “Suns Out Jorts Out.” If you are in the Baltimore area on March 16th, head to the race, look for the group of people wearing jorts with smiles on their faces and beer in their hands.
  2. JHMMy new friends over at Wingate University are doing it again! The 2014 Wingate Jorts Mile will be held on the Wingate campus (North Carolina) on April 24th. The pictures from last year’s inaugural race were AMAZING and even led to my How to Guide for Running a Denim-Themed Race.

  3. And, finally, Trish (@runfreetrl) shared with me a race going on in her town of Canton, MI on June 14th, the Canton Liberty Run. The theme this year is “Stars, Stripes, and Jorts.” Here is the good part:

The “+ More” = My Absence

What’s up, Friends? I am sorry that I have been slacking in my posts. I have a good excuse though: I quit a job that was sucking the life out of me. An entire department of smart, educated professionals were micromanaged, treated unfairly, and bullied (strong word, I know, but it is appropriate). I only had the job for 8 months and knew it was time to go. I was fortunate to find another job right way – a FANTASTIC job with wonderful people where we are all valued and respected.

The stress associated with the change has taken a toll on me and this website was the thing that I had to temporarily let go. But all is good again in Jill-World. Thanks to all of you that reached out to see if I was okay. [hug]
