When you’re running the streets, it means that you’re out there trying to make a living or find a way to support yourself in some fashion. It also means that you’re on the move and not just sitting around doing nothing.
If someone is running their mouth, then they’re talking a lot about something. They may be telling stories or gossiping about someone else. It’s often used in reference to someone who is talking too much and should probably shut up.
To say that something is run in the family means that it’s something that is passed down from one generation to another when they were younger. For example, if someone says that my grandfather was a thief but I’m not because he ran in my family, then they’re saying that they don’t want to follow in his footsteps and become a thief like him because he had a bad reputation for stealing things when he was younger.
Someone who is running on empty has nothing left in them physically or mentally and needs rest so they can get back up again and continue on with what they were doing before they got tired out by their current situation.
