I'm from the U.S. and totally recognize "Wog" as a slur...Great article, misstep on the word mashing...How about "Joggling"?

i hate taking walk breaks, but i seem to be a little too gung-ho when i return to the treadmill. i'm going try an abbreviated version to get ready to start training for a half marathon.

For reals? I always thought my 60 minute WALK burned 300 calories.... damn....

I think it's only offensive in the UK, and obviously only if you mean it that way. I'm thinking if you said "I'm going to go wog on the treadmill" people'd figure out you didn't mean it as an insult.
