Middle-aged people don't need lovers or Mediterranean cruises to feel young. All they need is jogging suits. To accomplish this, they certainly don't need to jog--or even walk. All they need is to don the apparel. Jogging suits are comfortable, reasonable in price and attractive. Young people wear them because they're young. Many middle-aged people wear them to feel young. You might wonder why jogging suits are also called "warm-up" suits.

So … we meet again. Three of this weekend's four NFL wild-card games are rematches from the regular season, with New Orleans at Philadelphia being the only first-time matchup. The most recent of these meetings came two weeks ago when Indianapolis won at Kansas City, 23-7. The Colts, who play host to the Chiefs on Saturday, took advantage of four turnovers in that game. Kansas City quarterback Alex Smith had a fumble and was picked off twice after tallying just six interceptions in the first 14 games.

Physical fitness buffs unite! Where (in today's popular vernacular) is Richard Eder (Opinion, Nov. 3) coming from? Can it be that jogging is (you should excuse the expression) an "exercise" in self-indulgence? Perhaps a little, but it is a good kind of self-indulgence. It makes us feel better about ourselves--thus we are better able to cope with people and conditions around us. It might even give us more energy to devote to philanthropic efforts. And what about all those 10K runs and bicycle races specifically designed to benefit different charities--this is self-indulgent and self-satisfying?

BENGHAZI, Libya - Relatively few Americans remained in this eastern Libyan city as street battles raged and Islamic militants made ever-bolder forays in recent weeks. But Ronnie Smith, a chemistry teacher at an English-language school, stayed on, planning, colleagues said, to return soon to the United States for Christmas. Smith, 33, of Texas was gunned down Thursday by an unknown assailant or assailants as he jogged in an affluent central neighborhood of Benghazi, not far from the U.S. Consulate where an attack in September 2012 killed Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.

The endurance of a sheriff's deputy who jogs daily proved too much for a kidnaping suspect who bolted from a courtroom. Authorities said Johnnie Townsel fled while being returned to jail from court last week, racing down 16 flights of stairs, out a door and into the street. "I've never seen anything so fast," said Assistant County Atty. Robert Streitz. "One fluid movement and he was gone."

Bush told reporters at a White House reception that he jogged for half a mile around his vacation home during his stay in Kennebunkport, Me., over the Memorial Day weekend. Bush said he is feeling no after-effects from his bout with the thyroid ailment and doctors are reducing the medication he takes daily.

Regarding the letter from Ginny King (Sept. 27), in which she defends jogging on the street between 4:30 and 4:45 a.m.: Can she, or anyone, tell me why jogging has to be done on public streets in order to be effective? I'm certain that asphalt and concrete are hard on the feet and legs when running, and parks or back yards would be just as healthy for purposes of exercising. A little voice inside me whispers "exhibitionists" when I see the public joggers. DIANE SILVER Arleta

Lakers guard Steve Nash will be sidelined until at least next week, still unable to run without pain in his lower left leg, he said Tuesday. Nash took part in some agility drills Monday and tried to do some jogging but couldn't complete it symptom-free. He will probably undergo an MRI exam to get a fresh update on the small fracture in his lower left leg. Nash said he would not play Friday or Sunday, adding he'd be out "about another week" in a brief interview. The Lakers continue to wait, eager to see what their offense looks like under his guidance.

Like a team avoiding the flu, the Clippers staved off the hectic, lockout-induced schedule early on. Their season ticked off at a slow clip while other teams — including their Staples Center cotenants, the Lakers — ground through back-to-back-to-back marathons. But looming on the Clippers' calendar was a slew of games that promised trips from city to city, jet lag and weary legs. Guard Mo Williams said a relatively relaxed opening to the season helped the Clippers (8-4)

John Dugan's stomach turned Tuesday afternoon as he drove by the accident scene on Woodman Avenue in Sherman Oaks. A body lay covered in the road. "I kept driving," Dugan said.

" It wasn't until a few hours later that he learned it was his best friend's eldest son. Conor Lynch was 16 years old, with a lanky build and short, blond hair. He was jogging across the busy street during cross-country practice when he was struck by a sport utility vehicle.
