There was a recent Runner’s World article about the proclivity of news reports to refer to people injured while exercising as joggers, not runners. This is not a new distinction, in that joggers have the stigma have being fad runners. As in, they are only in it for the appearance of running. Maybe they really do get out there and move, but jogging seems to imply a halfheartedness, a lackadaisical stance.
Running, on the other hand, is serious work with a plethora of rewards. It is not just a thing to do; rather, it is a lifestyle, a mantra, the determined gait of someone who really cares, regardless of speed. Anyway, when there are news pieces about those injured folks, they are always referred to as joggers. Not runners. If they had been running, maybe they wouldn’t have been hurt. Just a thought.
I heard tonight that Saudi treat is tahini-dipped dates. I had to try it-although I had to substitute prunes for dates. It was soooo good. Like candy. Usually, prunes are kind of too sweet and tahini by itself tastes like cement. But put the two things together…genius. Way to go Saudis on spotting a good treat.
