How do guys and Some girls end up having their legs real cut and chiseled I love the look how can I achieve it? How many miles do I have to run or what do I do?

Try calf raises. Either on a slightly raised edge or even feet flat on the floor, alternate standing on your tip toes and lower yourself back to flat footed. They're easy unweighted, so do them as a burnout after a run or leg workout. I wouldn't advise doing it before a run, I got a nasty Charlie horse/cramp half way through a mile, and it sucks lol.

I do squats and lunges weighted and sometimes without weights that's very rare though I Mean like the calves they have them big and lines running down mine aren't big they would be normal they have muscle because well I love to run but I mean real raw calves Idk but I will keep working out thank u guys

Or sprints on the balls of your feet, those are pretty gnarly

I know there are other ways too. Biking and swimming are sure to carve out some crazy calf muscles.
