You don't have to run to fold. It happens automatically if you're sitting out.
It's not really that bad though. I mean, the bulk of the hands you can profitably play are dealt late position (especially if you're a laggy/tricky player), so leaving a table at MP3 and quickly checking on the other isn't that lossy.
