    No, Your leg goes muscular but didn't get longer.

    Running is a high impact activity. This results in compression forces. That would tend to shorten bones. But, bone will resist this. The bone will become stronger, but running won't change the length.

    Running can make you shorter because impact from landing forces are transmitted to the spine, and this can cause spinal disk compression.

    More likely to make them shorter through compression and the muscles strengthening.

    I think that can make your legs shorter by the constant impact on your knees making them compress more until there is no cartridge left in between as a barrier, then your legs can begin to lose circulation and die and eventually fall off
