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! :)

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!

Jogging is a form of trotting or running at a slow or leisurely pace.

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. :)

2010 Goals:
Get under 6 hours for a half Ironman triathlon

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.)

Sue,

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!!!

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.
