Is Run Commuting a Movement?

Did anyone see this question in the latest edition of Runner’s World? We were asked whether we thought run commuting was a movement earlier this year during the WalkJogRun interview (though it was later edited out).  I said that I didn’t think so.  But since then, it really does seem like it has been taking […]
