2.
1) the physical act of, basically, moving your feet in a fast rythmic motion to propel yourself forward at a greater speed than if you were walking or jogging.
2) a sport, wherein people run as a form of athletic activity as opposed to merely another action that a person can take. In other words, they run for the sake of running (or in order to compete with other individuals in an event called a "race.") Some people totally dedicate themselves to this sport, to the point where it is a major part of their lives. Others do it on a fairly regular basis in order to stay in shape, or as part of a training/workout regimen.
Still others run occasionally, when they feel like it.
In order to run well, it helps to have good form (running incorrectly can put stress on your joints and be even more painful), good endurance, patience, and commitment (you don't just give up after 5 seconds, or you'll never get anywhere).

2) The cross country kids went running after school. Everyone else stared at them funny because it was 25 degrees out and snowing.

3.
A concept propagated by hippies and other counter-culture rebels during the tumult of the 60s and 70s. The idea is that people should be free to love each other with no commitment besides what they feel is right.
This was tied in with such cultural landmarks as communes and Woodstock, and lead to quite a few confused young people having as much sex as possible, due to an urge to break old boundaries and rules and explore their newfound "free" sexuality.
Hippie 1: "Hey man."
Hippie 2: "Yeah, man, what's up?"
Hippie 1: "They're having a protest meeting over on that hill tommorow night. There's gonna be a lot of girls there."
Hippie 1: "Righteous, man."
Random Bystander: "Why do you kids all have sex with each other? There's no commitment anymore..." *shakes head*
Hippie 1: "Hey, man, that's not cool. Free love, man, peace love and happiness!"
Hippie 2: "Yeah, and screw the establishment!"

*Random Bystander walks away*

2)A pamphlet written by none other than Thomas Paine prior to the American Revolution. It railed against British policies in it's colonies, and got many colonists (the intelligent and/or educated ones who could read, anyway) to question British rule of America.
