The phrase "run a mile" means:
To try to avoid a situation or a person because you are embarrassed or frightened.
Based on this definition, I wonder if you could let me know whether the following sentence sounds natural and the usage of this verb is correct:
He's completely against marriage. He runs a mile "from" girls when it comes to marriage.
I have visited many web pages which had lots of examples including the phrase, but never found a preposition "from" in even one sentences to be used along with this phrase. It was why I made up a sentence and brought it up in the forum.
