Wow, I was really off on this one. I had always thought that it was more of a mechanical difference. I had always equated it like the difference between a horse's gallop and run. Speed seems to be a minor factor compared to what each one looks like. I thought that jogging looked more bouncy and more upright than running. Guess that doesn't transfer to humans like I thought.
Keep up the great work Suzette! I struggled with the same question when I got started but I think as long as I complete the distance it doesn't matter how fast I go. Some days are better than others but know this We are all RUNNERS! and proud of it! :)
Thanks everyone for all your input!!
Even though I'm a slow runner, I'm still a runner..

Ooooh, Irish, for a minute there, I thought YOU were getting a bit testy! LOL, glad I kept reading and found out that was still part of the quote.
I have also heard that you cease to be a jogger the moment you sign up for your first race.
Personally, I run. Even when I run/walk, I still consider it a run.
Bottom line, don't worry about speed!
Suezette - good question
Spark Fitness tracker add cardio
I guess that means its the same thing
That being said Runner sounds more serious
it wouldnt sound right to say
your a Boston Marathon Jogger ??- LoL

Jogging is a form of trotting or running at a slow or leisurely pace.
It's still running, but everyone's form of/pace for jogging is different.
5K - 29:54
4 Miles - 45:00
26.2 5:43:31 (shattered by 21 minutes!)
Upcoming registered races:
* San Diego Rock N Roll 13.1
*Make It By Midnight 13.1
*Savannah Rock N Roll 13.1
*Paint the Town 5K
*Space Coast 26.2
*Las Vegas Rock N Roll 13.1
According to Runners World:
Jog: is basically running at a slower pace, often to recover between intervals. Jogging is subjective rather than objective. One person's jog can be another person's run.
Runner: is a person who RUNS. Period. Every two weeks or so we have a thread about who supposedly qualifies as a runner. Simple answer: If you run, you're a runner. Please stop asking what is the difference between a runner or a jogger. If you're interested enough in the sport to come here, the chances are excellent that yes, you're a runner no matter how slow or fast you are or whether you ever enter a race or not.
Clearly someone at Runner's World is getting a little testy! LOL. Some runners think that being called a jogger is offensive because jogging implies not caring or not training or some thing else with a somewhat negative connotation, but I don't think it really matters. :)

There is not really a difference. It just depends on who you ask. It is semantics.
(My Garmin has some set points to define jog slow jog run, but I don't have access to that right now. They use it for setting up training workout limits.)
This above all: to thine ownself be true.

There is no difference in my book...some die-hard runners, consider anything too slow in their books as jogging. I consider anything faster than a brisk walk is running.
Its all the speed and the person. A fast runner 5 min mile would consider jogging at 10min mile. I would consider 10min mile running. Its all our perspective. We are all runners - All I know is that Running/Jogging makes me feel wonderful and I love it. If I miss a running day I feel bad. I have a 3 1/2 mile run scheduled for today.
Have a great week!!!
Stand Steady..... and see it through

I consider everything of the "running motion" running. Old schoolers will sometimes put a pace classification...but I don't agree.
If I say I'm going for a jog, that to me, means it's going to be an easy run for no purpose other than getting in my cardio for the day.

Could someone please clarify the difference(s) between running and jogging for me?
Thanks so much in advance!
