The best warmup for running is ... Running. If I am doing a long run 7-10 miles, theb I will run the first mile slow, stretch and then finish the run.

One interesting thing I read about stretching before a run (sorry I do not have the source):

Our muscles are like springs...if you stretch a spring out too much, it won't work as well. In "Born to Run", they talk about how more people get injured if they stretch before a run.

So just start light, get those springs warm and then enjoy. Make sure you stretch AFTER the run though!
