Adam over at The Boring Runner is conducting a survey on opinions about being called a jogger versus a runner.
This reminded me of a long early morning winter run when I was out with the big boys. Shawn and Graham had underestimated the distance, which was fine for these Boston-bound lads but I was hurting. Playing the tough guy, though, I sucked it up and kept up with them.
“Are you sure you don’t want to turn around here? We can catch up with you,” Graham asked.
When they asked again, I replied, “Yeah, sure, leave the gal on her own. I can see the headline in The Beaver: Female Jogger Found Dead in Ditch. And that will only piss me off because they called me a jogger.”
So, yes, Adam. It makes a difference to me.
