If you’re in a boat and you’ve run aground then you’ve run up on the, presumably shallow, bottom of the body of water that your boat is on, or your boat has run up onto the shore. In either case, you’re probably not going to be going anywhere fast unless you leave your boat.

I’m not a sailor, but I suspect that running aground is not considered to be a good thing in most circumstances. If any nautical people are reading this, please correct me in a comment below if I’m wrong about that.
