Running in the Piney Woods of East Tx
dRunning or power walking is a great way to keep in shape while living mobile. The main reason is that the equipment needed to do it, running shoes, take up very little room in your rig AND you can do it almost anywhere.
I ran this morning in these pine woods. It is still so hot here in East Texas. 100+ every day. I would have to run real early in the morning or late in the evening to make it bearable. But... I was able to run on the trails, through these pines, in the later part of the morning today because they provided such nice shade. Also, the ground is sandy, which gives when running, thus is easier on the joints and feet. It's less jarring.
