This is an interesting example as I would NOT feel comfortable
walking/running along this type of road. I also live in the US, but I would
prefer to use a different route, if possible.

I suppose I consider foot=yes roads to have sidewalks, desire paths, or
roads with low traffic volume. However, I do live in an urban area where
these features are ubiquitous.
