Blog Title: Running
Blog Entry: For conditioning, my dad and I started running every day unless the weather stops us. It is a good exercise, and sometimes we run to the library with books/videos instead of going by car. Cars and trucks are to blame for nearly 1/5 of all US emissions, emitting around 24 pounds of carbon dioxide and other global-warming gases for every gallon of gas. About five pounds comes from the production, delivery, etc. of the fuel, while most of the emissions—more than 19 pounds per gallon—comes out of the cars themselves. Back to running, every time my dad and I run, we try to go just a bit further than last time, but not too much, so we increase slowly but well. I like this method, and can't wait to see how far we can run after a good amount of time.
