I stole this fun survey from Ali @ Hit the Ground Running. These running acronyms take our strange language to a whole new level! The instructions are to edit the answers to reflect your own. I hope you find this interesting! I had fun doing it and reflecting over my years of bloody blisters, blown up port o' johns, and peeing on my leg...
DNS- Did Not Start- Many, many times!
DNF- Did Not Finish- No, mainly because I err on the side of just not starting the thing if I don’t think I can finish it.
DNRAL- Did Not Remember to Apply Lube- It’s not that I don’t remember. It’s that I downplay the chance that I may actually chafe… and then I end up chafing.
DFL- Dead Freaking Last- I don’t believe so.
FFF- Finished Freaking First- Yes! At the Kid’s Chance 10k two years. I was the first OVERALL. My family was there to witness it, which was the best part!
DQ- Didn’t Quit- I’ve quit in the middle of a run or have cut it short- but not a race.
WMD- Wore a Medal to Dinner- After my first marathon, I wore my medal to dinner at my in-law’s house.
BTW- Bemoaned The Weather- Who hasn’t!?
SSP- Shared Shoe Photos- I have done this when I get new shoes. I don’t know why… I am not into shoes. When I read blogs, I skip all the posts about shoes.
TUBT- Threw Up By Track- I have never thrown up from running. I have definitely pushed myself close to the line… I just haven’t crossed it yet. I hope I never do!
PR- Personal Record- Not in a while, unfortunately.
PB- Personal Bartie- No, I can’t say I have ever met Bart Yasso or any other famous runner. I don’t think I would even recognize Bart Yasso!
CRAPOP- Certifiably Ruined A Port O Potty- I blow up port ‘o johns left and right!
LOL- Leaked On Leg- All the time! In fact, I just did so this past Sunday when I peed in an ally!
OMG- Ordered Many Gus- No, I am not a Gu person.
BFF- Blessed with Fast Feed- I wouldn’t call myself a naturally fast runner. But I would say I am blessed with muscles that respond to training. Does that make sense?
BRB- Blisters Rubbed Bloody- I don’t get blisters much at all, but my worst blisters were after my 50 miler. I had a huge blister on the outside of each of my big toes. They were the size of marbles. I punctured them and it hurt SO BAD! I had scars for a while.
WTF- Waddled Through Finish- I don’t think so.
IDK- Injured Damn Knee- Hellz yeah! I had freaking surgery! I don't think I needed it though. Long story...
ET- Eulogized a Toenail- My second nail on my left foot comes and goes. I don’t stress about it.
GPJ- Got Passed by a Joggler- Probably!
