Yes: Running is an excellent exercise for building cardiovascular endurance; if you run distances you will improve your slow-twitch muscle tone and over time as you decrease body fat your muscles may appear more defined; if you focus on sprinting you will engage fast-twitch muscle and may see more of a "mass" effect; if you are trying for body-builder muscles strength training in gym is your best bet. ...Read more

What is the difference in the exercise prescription for building muscular endurance vs muscle strength ?
Str vs Endur: Strength is looking for maximum output over a short period of time. An example of this would be powerlifting.
