The Concise Dictionary of Bagging Terms

While on a recent baggage expedition, it occurred to me that baggers and baguettes have a language unto themselves.  For the benefit of those who are new to the Bagger Challenge and baggery, in general, I thought it would be a good idea to define some of the key terms and expressions.

Cleveland Dam is strategically positioned near the half way mark of this 50km trail race.  It a popular spot as it is easy to reach and invites families and spectators alike to hang out in Cleveland Park to cheer the runners on.

Friends and fellow runners, I don't recommend you follow my example of being a dumb-ass about how you approach your races.  This is a true story, however, and I share it to the best of my recollection.
