    I am driving for a jog does it mean what it says

    Hello.

    This morning I saw - on the back of a car - the silhouette of a slim young woman who was running. Below the silhouette, there was an inscription which says "I am driving for a jog".

    Maybe the inscription should read: "I am driving jogging" or "I am driving for some jogging" or "I am driving in order to do some jogging".

    What do you think?

    Thank you.

    Re: I am driving for a jog does it mean what it says

    Purpose is often indicated by the use of the preposition for. To me, whatever comes alongside the purpose indicated is about the way or method needed to reach the goal, not the goal itself.

    I'm driving for a jog. (I need a car so that it can get me where I can jog)
    I'm taking the bus for a jog. (I need a bus so that it can get me where I can jog)

    In this context, you could also think of a desire (drive) that a person has for some activity, but this interpretation is only mine.
