hurdle / hurtle
You’re running like the wind, hauling tail Indian Jones-style through some busy marketplace. You’re shoving things out of the way, colliding into people, and leaping displays of merchandise with a single bound. So are you hurdling or hurtling?
The running part can be called hurtling. The leaping part is hurdling.
Per American Heritage online.
hurtle: 1. to rush violently; move with great speed: ‘The car hurtled down the highway.’
2. to move or go noisily or resoundingly
hurdle (the verb form): 1. to leap over (a barrier) in or as if in a race. 2. to overcome or deal with successfully; surmount: ‘hurdle a problem.’
