Well, it doesn't have any legs to run with...so if you don't mind a severly scratched/chipped case...sure! <br><br><br>seriously...do you have a case with it? I have heard others taking it with them when they go jogging, but not me. <br><br><br><br>I don't jog. <br><br>

It has a motion sensor and locks the hard disk in place when it is moving to prevent damage to the hard disk and just plays from the cache. This does mean that if you are jogging for more than 20 minutes it will stop playing until you stop moving.<br><br>Without sensibility no object would be given to us, without understanding no object would be thought.

Yes, you can take it jogging. It has skip protection which works quite well.<br><br><br>[color:red]semicolon dash parenthesis</font color=red>

Yeah, I have case from Xtrememac with a belt clip and it NEVER skips when running. The thing is a wonderful combination of engineering and art; worth every penny.<br><br>One piece of advice that took me a short while to figure out, clip it on the front of your hip bone, not on the side like a gun holster. If it is on the side it tends to twirl around while you run. <br><br>

<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>This does mean that if you are jogging for more than 20 minutes it will stop playing until you stop moving.<p><hr></blockquote><p>I'm no marathon runner, but this isn't true. On extremely good days I've jogged for almost an hour and it never stops. In fact, it loads new songs into the cache while I'm running (you can tell because there is about a 3 second delay). If you look at Apple's information FAQ about the 'pod it clearly states that it was manufactured with this sort of use in mind... but I have no idea how it doesn't become damaged.<br><br>

Cool..I'm learning more myself. I was afraid of it bouncing around in my pocket while walking! Hmmm...<br><br>
