I was reading a mystery story, written by a Brit, in which a suspect was recognized by his very bad style of running, which they called “dishing.” I didn’t really understand the fairly brief description, but it sounded like the feet were going sideways part of the time instead of forward and back. I can’t picture it except for running like a Jerry Lewis boy character, which doesn’t seem likely in context. I tried to find a video showing it, but was unsuccessful.
So that’s what I really want, to see it in a video. But a clear description or definition would also be excellent. I tried looking it up in dictionaries but couldn’t find anything much, unless it was connected to the idea of making something dish-shaped, so the runner’s feet were, in effect, trying to make dish-shaped holes in the pavement. I still can’t picture it. Considering the source I assume it’s British runner’s jargon, which is a fairly niche usage to find it’s way into a dictionary.
