If you're not a diehard lover of the outdoors, that's totally okay! Hiking to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro or running in freezing mid-December temps isn't for all of Us. But now that it's warming up outside, many of Us 'fairweather' nature lovers are venturing into the outdoors more frequently, especially for running . . . or hot girl walking.
