Abstract

There is a degree of irony in the fact that
in activities as thoroughly embodied as
sport and exercise, there is relatively little
phenomenological and particularly
ethnomethodological analysis of
members’ subjective experiences of
accomplishing these practical activities.
This paper aims to address this lacuna in a
modest way, by analysing one particular
sporting activity, distance running, and
more specifically, ‘running-together’ as a
joint accomplishment. Based upon data
generated from a collective
autoethnographic research project on
distance running, the paper seeks to
combine the autoethnographic approach
with the insights of phenomenology and
specifically, ethnomethodology, in order
to examine the production of runningtogether,
and thereby to ‘mark’ this
particular mundane activity.
