          CAD, DH, COPD, HTFU, .........

           

          MTA: Jehu beat me.

            COPD?

            xor

                COPD?

                 

                Since i work in a pharma company where this is the next big thing from a new class of treatment perspective, it stands for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease ... a degenerative non-reversible condition, usually found in smokers. For the medically inclined, look up Roflumilast.

                I'm back!

                  Some that seem to be RA (or maybe swamp) specific that I still don't get:

                    yes that was my first thought too - just confused as to the relationship between COPD and running. I feel like they don't coincide well. Smile

                      I think MTA should be added to 'General'. I've only just cracked what that means.

                        Ok, some more that fit into your running category:

                         

                        DFL = Dead f'ing last

                        1OA = first overall

                        1AG = first in age group

                         

                         

                        PS: I've seen HMP being used. I just saw it about 15sec ago in a different thread.

                        It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

                          GETM

                          gsp

                           

                          No idea on GETM.  

                           

                           I've assumed gsp was for Garden State Parkway. Busy roadway, open to all.? Just my guess

                            I have never seen Getm either .. google didnt help too .. perhaps it was a typo?

                              gsp is, apparently, "great scary place" or "giant scary place"... meaning the regular message board area.  It is used by people who hang out in one of the groups like masters or the swamp or perhaps that group I'm not allowed to mention by name.  I think (though I can't say for sure) that "gsp" kind of means "the place where you are more likely to get beat up, as opposed to the friendly confines in here".

                                Yes, I think that was a little in joke between the doctor (Trent) and the doctor-to-be (LaBrat).
