While the leaves are still on the trees, every little place in the forest seems so private. Just add water for a soundtrack. Good day for a walk in the woods near some water. Great by yourself. Great with someone else. Here's a start. Just Press Play.
Move. As much as you can, as fast as you can, for as long as you can. No more. No less. Sweat. Breathe very deeply. It makes you feel good. It's not hard labor.
I'm really not into telling you what to wear on your feet or any other body part. But I've had such a good experience with these strange new running shoes I thought I should let you know. Because I know you'll exercise more when it feels good.
