Summer Running: Feeling Hot Hot Hot!!!

It's summer here in North America, and for all of us runners, we are entering a time of great struggle against the elements.  The heat, the sun, the humidity--all of them present unique training challenges that, when combined (as they often are in Washington, DC), make for a very difficult training season.
Runner's World offers a fairly comprehensive summer guide for training in these hot months.  Susan Paul's article "10 Steps for Making Hot Weather Tolerable" is particularly helpful.  Read all of this in the late morning, after you've completed your workout.

Stay hydrated, stay safe, and run well.
