Under your belt

Posted by AlaricXI on March 01, 2005

I've been learning to do a few new things lately. I keep hearing the prase "after you have a few thousand miles under your belt" (refering to motorcycles) and "after you have a year or two under your belt" (refering to programming). I'm curious as to what the origin of this prase would be. Thanks.
