The Stamina bar is represented by the yellow bar under the red health bar, and automatically refills a short time after letting go of the Sprint button, it is possible to resume sprinting before the Stamina bar fills, but there is another delay before it recharges. Jumping interrupts the refill of the Stamina bar.
In Saints Row, Saints Row 2, and the PC version of Saints Row: The Third, pressing the Sprint button alone does nothing, Playa does not move until the direction control is also pressed.
