J is for... Jogging

If you know me, you know that I LOVE to run.

I have done two half marathons, one 10k, and multiple 5ks.

I did track and cross country in high school.

I didn't run in college, but that's because I am slow.

I even have trouble saying that I'm going running.

If you ever see me mention when I'm going out for this activity, I will most likely say I am going jogging.

I don't know why I can't call it running. That's what it is afterall. Right? Running. Running. Running.

However, I think I have a mental block because of my lack of speed. Hence, the use of the term jogging.

I jog. I rarely run. I aspire to run, hence the use of lawyergirlruns86 in my blogger site address.

I may sometimes use the term running, but usually if I am thinking about it I will say jogging.

Why do I feel the need to down-grade my efforts?

Is that what I am even doing?

I think so.

So today I am hoping for more times where I can be running, instead of jogging.

(I do not mean this post to down-grade jogging and joggers... just been something on my mind.)

**This post is for the April A to Z Challenge!


  1. I have never ran a marathon and also love to jog even though I haven't for a couple of years unless running on the treadmill counts

  2. Yay for jogging :)

    Hope you’re enjoying the challenge so far!
