Linking up with Patty, Erika, and Marcia on Running Lingo.
A quick google search explained to me what things where... but I always hoped it was something else...
What I hoped it was - Puerto Rican rice... because I LOVE Puerto Rican Rice more than my Mexican rice. Sadly, there has not been any Puerto Rican rice at any races I've done.
What I thought It meant -Burger Queen? What does that have to do with running? Breakfast Queen probably... sounds more likely.
I had no idea what AG placement meant, until I got one in a 5K. It was pretty awesome!! And it became a goal to get AG placement at the Kennett run, but it hasn't happened yet.
Also when I started running, I would see pictures of people wearing knee high socks, I had NO IDEA what they were for... but wanted so desperately to have a pair of long knee socks. Until I looked up a pair that I had seen in a popular Blog (that I no longer follow... ) and saw the price! $50 for a pair of socks? what? $50? that's like 2 5K Registrations! A Dinner for my entire family of 3! a Breakfast for me, my son and my sisters! forget it. I don't want fancy knee high compression socks.
The one that makes me laugh the most is that I had no idea that GPS watches existed and what they did. A friend from work told me about it, and at the time it sounded like an amazing luxury to have one! And when I asked for one for Christmas, I didn't really think it was going to happen.... so I almost never take it off.
I can now proudly read this sentence and understand 100% what it means!
During my last race my GPS watch told me that I met a new PR,
and I got AG placement! Hopefully one day I'll BQ!
I'm still learning abbreviations and runners lingo... do you have one that is a weird one? one that meant something else, completely different? What is your favorite running word/lingo?
