Very good Article, since I walk/jog with dogs- I had to scope out the territory 1st before taking them with me. Unfortunately, there are no side-walks & very little shoulder to our streets- I HATE seeing someone pass with ear phones! You really cannot be totally aware of your surroundings with them on.

I have to jog on a tradmill indoors because it is so hot during the summer here in Arizona. But we cerainly will use the suggestions in the article for the upcoming winter when our weather is better. We have a dog who loves to walk and we used to walk a lot a lot with her.

You can use www.mapmywalk.com to find out how far you walked without having to depend on the accuracy of your pedometer. You put in your address, then just drag and click your route and the site tells you exactly how far you went. I love it because from a map view, I can see new routes through the subdivision to change my scenery a bit.

I never walked much until we got a dog. He is a great walking companion. He is use to our routine and keeps me accountable. He barks at me when it is time to go!

If you don't have a pedometer, or forget to turn it on, what you could also do is look at Google Maps. If you run on sidewalks, you can set the destination you ran to, and it will give you the distance.

Enjoyed the article. Sometimes I get stuck doing the same things over and over. I think I might try a different route/scenery tomorrow!

Great article. I walk now while waiting for my dd at her JUDO class rather than sit and chat with the other parents.
