In 1593 William Shakespeare wrote in Taming of the Shrew, Katerina tells off a gentleman to go jogging till his boots go green. The terms to jog and jogging, as a form of exercise, originated in England in the mid seventeenth century. In the United States jogging was also called "roadwork" when athletes in training, such as boxers, customarily ran several miles each day as part of their conditioning. In New Zealand during the 1960s or 1970s the word roadwork was mostly supplanted by the word "jogging" The idea of jogging as an organised activity was mooted in a sports page article in the New Zealand Herald in February 1962, which told of a group of former athletes and fitness enthusiasts who would meet once a week to run for "fitness and sociability". Since they would be jogging, the newspaper suggested that the club "may be called the Auckland Joggers Club"—which is thought to be the first use of the noun "jogger".

Hardlopen kan men bijna bij elk weertype doen. Sommige lopers stellen zich tot doel gewoon lekker te blijven lopen. Anderen proberen hun prestaties te verbeteren door steeds snellere tijden neer te zetten op bijvoorbeeld de 5 km. Weer anderen trainen verder voor bijvoorbeeld de 10km, 10 mijl, halve marathon of natuurlijk de hele marathon. Veel hardlopers zeggen dat, wanneer je eenmaal de smaak van het hardlopen te pakken hebt, het een bezigheid is waar men niet meer zonder wil. Dit is niet vreemd als men zich bedenkt dat bij het lopen endorfines worden afgegeven aan het bloed. Deze stoffen zorgen ervoor dat je je goed voelt. Zelf hou ik niet zo van jogging, laat mij maar wandelen ;-)
