Running philosopher George Sheehan said that the difference between a runner and a jogger is a signature on a race application. If there is a finish line of some sort, even your own personal goal, I say you are a runner.

^^This! If you are out on the road, trail or treadmill putting in the roadwork, you are a runner.

Some friends on here as well as myself use this term!

I saw it posted somewhere, and I apologize I can't quote or give credit but the gist of it, was that jogging is not real, it's a myth, anything faster than a walking pace is running.

Just scrolled down and saw that Geaorge Sheehan quote and I like that one too!

Awhile back when I told my husband I was going for a run, he said that what I did was jog, not run. I did feel offended by that, lol. It felt like he was downgrading it, as if it didn't take as much effort. I think that's what makes people angry. No, I'm not an olympic sprinter and I'm not going to win any timed races....my pace is only 8.5-9 mph in the grass or 7.5-8 on flat ground but I'm running damnit!


WHAT?? 9 Miles an hour is not a JOG! LOL Trust me you are a runner!

Like.

I was thinking that I'm a jigglogger, since I still have too much jiggle in my jog.

they are the same. i think the difference is hyped up by running snobs who want to differentiate themselves as being more authentic than others. one person's run is another person's jog.




This. Exactly.

They have running and jogging as seperate things.. I figured Id post it for a laugh. :)


no human being can run at 15 mph for long distances, marathon world record is 2 hours 3 minutes which is about 13 mph and we are talking here about elite athlete runners, she clearly does not know what she is talking about.


Besides which 15mph is what the four minute mile was run at - I am damn sure I could NOT run the four minute mile laugh


The winner of the Ann Arbor marathon averaged 6 minute miles. When I saw that, I felt woefully inadequate LOL since I can't run that fast for ANY distance.

ditto! My fastest pace that I can sustain for any length of time is only a 12 minute mile (5 mph). And I about beat my husband over the head the day he tried to tell me I was only 'jogging'.

I'm a "dogger", that is, I try to keep a pace that keeps the dogs at a run.

HA HA! This cracked me up. And sometimes I just run against the light, give my best "sorry!" face to the pissed off drivers and hope i don't get RUN over tongue

Honestly though, this is one of my favorite quotes: “If you run, you are a runner. It doesn't matter how fast or how far. It doesn't matter if today is your first day or if you've been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run.” ― John Bingham
