There are no listed countable variants of the gerund running. I'm not a linguist, but I am a computer programmer, and I have test platforms that perform multiple runnings of our test suite every evening. This sense is subtly different from "multiple runs": the former implies sequential execution, and the later could allow for synchronous (though it isn't implied) runs. I can't tell if this is personal practice or if it is more widely accepted. --Speed8ump from 01:55, 30 November 2006 (UTC)

Now I see I used ran instead of running. I see that ran fits for ran as an example, and in it's correct place. "Jack just passed my office. He is running late again" for example of someone being late Logictheo 07:57, 1 August 2009 (UTC)
