running vs jogging....?


When I was in college my friend and I had a completely pointless ongoing debate about the difference between being a "runner" and being a "jogger". To me, a runner is someone who is much more serious about running than a "jogger". They know about form, how to breathe, and can run long distances on a regular basis- easily. Well today is the day that I sadly demote myself from "runner" to "jogger" (someone who hasn't a clue what they are doing, just out for a sporadic run...you know...the people who you see running along side of the road looking like they are going to keel over and die any second???!!!) Yes...that was me today. I took my amazing jogging stroller out for it's maiden voyage and lets just say....we didn't make it far! My body was in shock...YIKES am I ever in awful shape. I have a LOT of work to do to get back to my regular running. I loved it though! And thank you again to my friends for getting me the stroller at my baby shower!

I bet that was so fun taking the stroller out for the first time! I bet Maddux had fun also. I'm sure you will be back to a 'runner' in no time! Don't worry, I will always think of you as a runner and not a jogger! :0)

You are a runner. Your stroller is so cool. I will always consider myself a jogger.

Hey I love your stroller!! That is the kind of stroller I need. :) I'm more of a jogger :) What brand is that? Have a great day!!!

You are too funny. If it makes you feel better, I am only a wanna-be jogger. See you at spin!

I'm jealous that you have such wonderful weather to be able to go out with the stroller!! Good for you for having the ambition to get out! You'll be back in shape in no time, don't even worry!!

haha. Tarah, you crack me up! I don't think you could ever truly be demoted to jogger status. You did just have a baby you know! haha. It's awesome you're even out trying to run at this point! Good job---Mad props!
