Think You Can Tell Running from Walking?

For the most part, it’s easy to determine whether someone is running versus walking.  I would venture to say that most of you would approach 100% accuracy on making that call.  But would you be able to put into words exactly how you were able to tell the difference?

If you’ve ever seen race walkers in action, then you know they can generate some pretty impressive speeds.  In fact, they can look like they’re on the verge of breaking into a jog… but of course,  any running would disqualify them.  So it’s a fine line between walking and running. But it’s also a very specific one.

Do you know exactly what defines running as distinct from walking?…
