Speak softly and carry a big stick” – Theodore Roosevelt.  Yeah you heard me. Walk with sticks! This was very popular when I lived in Europe. The Trekking Poles, Walking sticks, whatever you want to call them give you more stability and relive some of the impact on the joints. If you are trying to relieve stress on your knees or perhaps your knees are worn from years of running, etc. this may be a good option for you to consider. I am starting to see them more and more used in the streets while folks are walking but they can also be used when hiking or during periods of snow (so you wont have an x-cuse for not going out to get some x-cersize!). Bonus you burn more calories than walking alone and for those of you afraid of dogs in your area, you can use this to your advantage.
