Unless you're talking extremes of either, like professional runner or lifter, I'd say most people would benefit in day to day life from lifting more than running faster. Moving furniture, carrying all the groceries in one trip, setting up equipment, etc. But when was the last time you had to run outside of a sport or exercise?I just can't see the benefit of being able to lift a car but not being able to run a half block.
I like running 5Ks, but other than that, running is boring as hell for me. No real motivation to try to improve my time, but getting a bigger lift feels great. Of course, I'm not lifting crazy and probably won't be. 315 would be awesome for me, but there was a dude at the gym today who couldn't have been more than 150 lbs squatting 315 for at least 5 reps at a time.
