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’?


This pedophobe appreciates teachers

Teachers are awesome for so many reasons. A few of them:

1) Teachers work very hard for very little pay.

2) Teachers deal with a lot of $hit (ahem, Crazy Parents and Budget Cuts, I’m talking to you).

3) Teachers are completely responsible for the lives of scary little creatures who are not related to them for a good portion of their day.

4) A freakishly large number of teachers are fans of this blog. What’s up with that?

As a self-proclaimed pedophobe I REALLY appreciate the work that teachers do day in and day out. So how about showing some teachers (your own or your kid’s) that you appreciate them this week? And then enjoy the picture from Jill, teacher and Whine & Cheese Run Club blogger, that was taken of a guy jogging IN JEANS who she saw at a local park.
