Since we’ve lived in a beach town for many years and the the beach was only a few miles away over a very scenic causeway, we ran often and it was exhilarating.
I used to run a lot at Ft. Bragg when I served in the Airborne, also. Different scenario, but still good.

There are many ways to do cardio without running, but my favorites are sled pulls and macefit training.
When I post to social media I use the tag #cardiowithoutrunning as you might expect.
What I looked for was a way to not pound my knee joints and not take all day to get the job done.
