A friend recently posted his Monday Motivational Discussion, how do you feel when someone calls you jogger which of course led to my response. "It bothers me less. I used to want to punch people in the throat. I think the word should be eliminated. Do we have any other sports with different terms for recreational vs professional? Was jogger a cool word that has become derogatory or was it intended negative? I am going to Google jogger now..."
My quick search led to the fact it is coach and Nike founder Bill Bowerman's fault. http://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/jogging
Also the accepted jogging running threshold is the 10 min mile.
What do you think?
