Google Translate for Runners

I found this list of some really great translation stuff for runners. My favorites are below. Check this website for the whole list by Amy L. Marxkors.

 

“So, what pace are you hoping to run?”
Translation: “Are you competition?” 

“Oh, you’re from around here? What school did you go to? What year did you graduate?”
Translation: “Are you in my age group?”

“So, what’s your PR?”
Translation: “I’m comparing myself to you, and suddenly my confidence in my own ability is somehow related to your best time.”

“Wow! That is really fast.”
Translation: “I didn’t think you were that fast.”

“Wow! That’s awesome.”
Translation: “I thought you were faster.”

“My training hasn’t been great.”
Translation: “Training has been my life for the past eighteen weeks.”

“I’ll try to hang with you as long as I can.”
Translation: “I will drive you into the ground.”

“I was on pace for the first twenty miles, but then I hit the wall. Training wasn’t great. I’ve been battling an injury. And I just got over being sick. Guess it all caught up to me.”
Translation: “I went out too fast.”

“My hamstrings got a little tight.”
Translation: “I’ve lost the ability to bend at the waist.”

“I took some time off to let it heal.”
Translation: “I didn’t run last Thursday.”

“Yeah, I’ll get it looked at after the race.”
Translation: “I will wait for it to go away on its own.”

“Yeah, I should probably see a doctor.”
Translation: “I will not see a doctor.”

“Today is a light day, so I’m probably going to run six or eight.”
Translation: “I’m going to run six miles. But I usually run further. Why couldn’t you have asked me how far I ran yesterday after my long run?”

“The race didn’t go well. But it happens, you know?”
Translation: “No, you don’t know. You will never, ever be able to comprehend how awful it was. I cried. I puked. I walked. I had diarrhea. My body hates me. The sport hates me. The world hates me. I trained for four months for this? WHY ME? WHY?

Can anyone else relate to these? It is amazing how similar I find myself with some of these! Pretty great stuff! Make sure you check the source for the whole list.

  • How about: “yeah I’ve had some great long runs so I’m going to start my taper about 3 weeks before the big race”
    Translation: “actually I’m going to run long and too much until the week before and then drop my 90 mile weeks down to 50 and binge on ice cream and fast food to carb load the last few days before the race”
