When do you move from being a jogger to being a runner? Is it is to do with speed, commitment, style, frame of mind, the amount of gear you have...
Ive heard people mention speeds and distance but
Id say its as much in your mind as anything. Lots of runners have long slow training sessions where jogging is a good description of their progress.
Bottom line who cares its all good
I've always thought the distinction was as per the Wiki link in Mike's post, but when I answered thus when this question came up a few months ago, someone else said the difference between jogger and runner is... a race entry form!
...and apparently if you're over 50, it is perfectly acceptable to go from being a jogger to a slogger!
I think anyone who goes running can call themselves a runner - whether they sprint round a track, trot through the park, dash along footpaths, scamper up and down fells, jog with the dog, trundle along trails or whatever, it's all running!
only joggers find dead bodies in woods or by the side of the road
As the old saying goes... "If you're not sure wether you're running or jogging....go faster!!"
Woo Hoo always considered myself a jogger, according to Wiki link above though I'm officially a runner! [now doing silly dance around office!]
As said above though who cares? I wish I could get my brother just to do a bit a walking exercise, as anything is better than nothing!
