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. :)
