Whilst there exists a substantial literature providing abstract theorizations of sport, there is relatively sparse ethnographic research addressing the mundane practices of actually “doing sport” and specifically, “doing sport together”. To address such lacunae, this chapter offers an in-depth, phenomenologically inspired analysis of training together for distance running as requiring finely attuned interaction and intercorporeality. Here, we focus specifically upon the sensory and interactional work we undertake, which constitutes an essential component in our experience of running-together. Employing sociological phenomenology as the theoretical framework, we draw on data from a collaborative autoethnographic project to explore and analyze in detail our various intercorporeal practices and processes, fundamental to the enaction of training-together for distance running.
