Q.St Augustine Grass Runners Growing On Top Of The Grass Vs Rooting Into The Soil

I live in Florida and the yard is St Augustine grass. After a tough winter the typical spring growth of new runners has the new growth running on top rather than rooting into the soil and spreading as normal.

Unfortunately, your photos did not come through. I am unable to see the issue at hand. This could be due to ground compaction, or overcrowding. Aeration, or adding earthworms may help some.
