A riddle:

Running backwards,
Jogging still,
Walking up above,
But standing low.

I do not have wings,
yet flying I can do.

I have not armor,
yet I always fight.

What am I?

So what is the answer?

Are you...

time?

My rationale is pretty loose, but it seems to mostly fit:

Running backwards, jogging still

like a countdown clock / stopwatch / Choose your metaphor about time running on

Walking up above, But standing low.

Not sure on this one

I do not have wings, yet flying I can do.

Time flying is a pretty standard metaphor

I have not armor, yet I always fight.

Fighting against time is also a standard metaphor.

Are you...

wind?

I'm really unsure, this is a good riddle.

Running backwards, Jogging still

wind can run/move in any direction

Walking up above, But standing low.

Movement of the wind (higher up, it can be felt but lower down it's more difficult)

I do not have wings, Yet flying I can do

Wind flies around everywhere

I have not armor, Yet I always fight

Fight against solid objects, which weaker wind had little resistance to
