In the South, summer is one of the toughest seasons to run in. The heat and humidity seem to compete with each other to see which one can heat us up the fastest! While it would be great idea to just skip summer and wait until the heat goes on vacation in fall, taking a 3 month break is not in my future. I will say that treadmill is a great option when the temperatures are dangerously high or when it's raining. To survive the summer I slow my pace, run at cooler times of the day, and hydrate frequently. I also incorporate a few summer races to stay fit for fall training. Need a few summer races?
