J is for Jogging
I googled jogging and got this . . .
Dr. George Sheehan, a best-selling author from the 1970s running boom, is quoted as saying that "the difference between a runner and a jogger is a signature on a race application."
Of course, there are lots of people out there who are WAAAAY faster than I am that use running as a regular form of exercise but have never competed in a formal race. Then there is me who has done lots of races but can walk faster than she can jog/run.
Anyways, people seem to use the term jog when they see someone exercising but use the term run when they see people in a race. So if you're a runner, don't be offended if someone mentions they saw you "out jogging". On the other hand, all those back of the pack people in races should be proud to call themselves runner.
