A bird, a plane? I am more like the rain
"Stupid", "insane", all the cowards complain
Near the end of the run, I slowed my pace
And thence ended the fun, and my heart's race

What am I?

No offense for using the word "coward", just a figure of speech.

You might be

a parachutist.

  • A bird, a plane? I am more like the rain

    You move through the sky, but mainly downwards, like a raindrop.

  • "Stupid", "insane", all the cowards complain

    Some non-parachutists might use these terms to describe your sport.

  • Near the end of the run, I slowed my pace

    As you approach the ground for landing, the parachute slows you down.

  • And thence ended the fun, and my heart's race

    The jump is over, and the adrenaline rush subsides (so your heart rate decreases).

  • $\begingroup$ How would the glider be rain-like, @Chris ? $\endgroup$ – pb8330 Jan 6 '17 at 20:37
  • $\begingroup$ Generally descending. $\endgroup$ – Chris Cudmore Jan 6 '17 at 20:38
  • $\begingroup$ More than a bird, I suppose; OK :) $\endgroup$ – pb8330 Jan 6 '17 at 20:41

Are you

A Nomad

A bird, a plane? I am more like the rain

Like rain, they travel and fall upon places to places

"Stupid", "insane", all the cowards complain

People often call them by these names.

Near the end of the run, I slowed my pace

They settle down and end their long run once they find a final destination.

And thence ended the fun, and my heart's race

Travelling is what they are called for. Stopping that leads to an end of fun for them and hence stops their race to stay a Nomad.
