This week’s letter is ‘J‘.

And what did I do just this morning? Right, I got out of bed, still tired, got a cup of coffee after briefly going through the usual morning bathroom routine, put on some clothes, checked my email real (!) quick and then went for a jog. David, my husband, actually calls it a ‘jiggy-jog‘, because I am jogging for a few minutes, then walking for one minute and then jogging again.

Whippany, NJ, New JerseyI have never been much into running. At school I was pretty good at it, but I did not like it. I preferred playing games, like volleyball. But somehow last year on Bonaire we jiggy-jogged together and it kind of stuck. Last summer with all the moving I did not do it too much, but this year since the weather got a little warmer I have been jogging here in Whippany on the sidewalks about three or four times a week, sometimes also doing a little biathlon. Taking my bicycle and riding it to Central Park (Whippany/Hanover not New York City!), jogging a couple of rounds there and then bicycling back. It really is fun. I am doing this pretty slowly in order not to upset my aging body (i.e. shin splints), but – hey – nobody is pushing me, right? I can do this at my own pace. Usually I am rewarding myself a little, too. Because I am always taking my smartphone, I also have a Whippany Road, New Jerseycamera with me. And when I am doing the walking part and I see something interesting, I take a photo. This is actually how or when I take most of my instagram photos (I was talking about it last week for letter ‘I’). You can find them here on my blog on Wordless Wednesdays .

Central Park, Whippany, New JerseyIt is an all win situation for me: I am getting outside into the (mostly) fresh air, doing a workout to keep my body (mostly) healthy and I am pursuing my passion, (100 %) photography.

Right now, without jogging something would be missing.
