I inquired the other day whether the word jogging has begun to look dated, with running increasingly the preferred term. ( The Sun has written about people robbed while "jogging," which struck some readers as dated.) The responses, as you would have expected were various. A couple of comments from Facebook: " I don't do either but I'd guess people who consider themselves runners wouldn't be caught dead jogging. " " 'Jogging' makes me laugh when I see it, either in print or being done.

Lauren La Canfora, the wife of CBS Sports' "NFL Insider" Jason La Canfora who was hit by a car while running Friday in Towson, was released from a second trip to the hospital Sunday. She remains in "a lot of pain," with a concussion but no internal injuries, her husband said. She was released from Sinai Hospital on Friday, but went back to Greater Baltimore Medical Center on Saturday and was admitted for the night. "She's coming along much better," Jason La Canfora said. Information identifying the driver of the white sedan that struck his wife at York Road and Stevenson Lane was proving difficult to find, La Canfora said.

ELMONT, N.Y. -- Cigar is back on the track at Belmont Park for the first time since he won the Massachusetts Handicap two weeks ago with a bruised heel. He is merely jogging, but is being pointed toward more serious work later this week and, if everything seems sound, toward the special $1 million race that has been offered by Arlington Park in Chicago.The Arlington race, which would be run at a time chosen by Cigar's handlers, probably would be scheduled on July 13 or 14, giving Cigar about one month until his next scheduled race, the Pacific Classic at Del Mar in California on Aug. 10.The 6-year-old has a winning streak of 15 races and he needs one more to match the modern record set by Calumet Farm's Citation in 1948.

I thought there'd be some interesting pictures taken that I could use to talk about in a fun way with my constituents."

A number of the articles have said that the victims were jogging . One reader asked, "Do people still jog?" I'd like you to consult your own recollections about the word. Is jogging redolent of the 1970s? Do people still jog ? Or is running what people do on the street these days?

One of Baltimore's most bizarre political sideshows took an ugly twist Monday, with police acknowledging that they were investigating a morning altercation between Clerk of Circuit Court Frank M. Conaway Sr. and blogger Adam Meister. Meister, who was sued by Conaway's daughter for $21 million after writing about tax credits on her homes, said the 78-year-old took a swing at him after the two engaged in an argument as the 35-year-old was jogging through the neighborhood. But unknown to Meister, Conaway says the incident was being observed by city police officers who were parked in a vehicle nearby and approached Conaway afterward.

One of the Ravens' more eagerly anticipated contests will take place Sunday night when the New York Jets visit M&T Bank Stadium. After the game, the Ravens will then enjoy their annual bye week. And that extra week of rest could determine whether Ben Grubbs takes his usual place as the starting left guard against the Jets. Grubbs has been troubled by strained ligaments in his toe, which have sidelined him for the team's past two games. Not playing has helped improve the health of the toe, but Grubbs didn't disagree with the notion that sitting out Sunday's contest and using the bye week for more recovery time might be even more beneficial than playing.
