    Smile at a jog

    Hello. What does "at a jog" mean?
    Could it mean "moving at a slow pace"?
    Thank you.
    ----------
    I tightened the backpack straps over my shoulder and picked up the empty duffel bag.
    I held taco in one hand and knew I'd have to eat it at a jog.

    Re: at a jog

    A jog is a slow run. I wouldn't call it "a slow pace". It's slower than full-speed running. It's much slower than sprinting. It's faster than walking.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Actually, I think you've found a bit of odd phrasing. My bet is that the writer meant "eat it while jogging." The writer is not going to sit down to eat.

    When we say "I won at a walk" or "I won at a jog," we mean "I didn't have to work very hard to win - winning was easy."
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
