Calf raises do work...well at least for me. I do regular calf raises, pigeon toed calf raises, and inward toe calf raises. I usually do them at work because im on my feet for 4+ hours. I usually put on a song and switch up which one I do every time the beat changes. Im actually planning on adding them to my workout regimen im starting tomorrow and I've decided to do each one until I burn out! So my hubby will have his hands full massaging my calves for a while :) I have 5 lb ankle weights that I like to use also. Ive seen 4 lb and 2 lbs and walmart and they're inexpensive but I havent seen a higher ankle weight at walmart :(

yes, I have tried sprinting but stopped because I usually walk/run with my dog and he needs to stop to pee all the time.

I just found this and will try out: calf raises

crank up the incline. Mines are the opposite tho... I want mines to be smaller... I think it's because I walk on my tip toes which I'm trying to stop doing because jeans will fit fine in the thighs and waist, but are tight on my calfs and it's annoying

I saw a guy using the leg press machine with only one leg, I wonder if that can help my leg be thicker

Genetics do play an important role on your calves. There are even bodybuilders and fitness models who get the calf implants because they are unable to have them match the rest of their body. I would say that you try calve raises with some pretty heavy weights to get them to grow.

I haven't been running at the beach. And when I do, it is not an everyday thing. I do walk twice a day with my dog though.

Right now you are doing alot of cardio activity from the running which is fine as long as you build muscle.  What you have going on now is your body is likely burning muscle, especially if you have a lower fat content. 

You need to do calf raises.  The video here shows the woman using dumbbells which help but it's possible to do it without them.

I want them to be thicker.... running at the beach helped them look nicer. I guess that's one way to get them looking gooood.
