Adhere to social distancing practices*  while you are out running or walking. Can you safely pass someone? Can you run safely on the road? Make sure you always have a safe way to move around people to maintain 6 feet of distance.

You may complete your challenge using a treadmill if  that is an option available to you and that you would prefer.
Wear appropriate clothing. Be visible and dress for the weather.
