I am enjoying this topic, and getting to know the history of every monickers. The name "lrangels" is not really a running monicker as I have always been using this on almost every forum I sign-up. lrangels came from the initial of my first name "L," initial of my middle name "R," and the English translation of my family name (originally in Spanish). Therefore, it's lrangels.
Amongst friends or running buddies, I have given monickers such as "LAX" and "LIVESTRONG". As many may already know that LAX is the airport code of the Los Angeles International Airport, and the common initials I have always used is LA. The LIVESTRONG monicker was created before the 10-miler in Philadelphia last year (2010) by my buddy since he noticed that my running outfit consist of the entire LIVESTRONG collection by Nike (from shoes, shorts, and shirt). From there he called, "hey!, LIVESTRONG!"
Here's my share, and I look forward to read more posts.
