She also explains one of the factors influencing Ethiopian, Kenyan and Ugandan dominance in the long distance running sports! Finally, what has a horse pulling a pine tree got to do with running a marathon? ShaoLan explains all!
The word ‘to jog’ in Chinese is 慢跑. 慢 means “slow” and 跑 means “to run” so 慢跑 “to run slowly” is “to jog.”
