Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Mar 29 update: MIL is home but not doing well.

J is for Jogging
I googled jogging and got this . . .
I'm going with definition 1 today although I'm sure there is some of definition 2 going on during races!

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.
