My training plan called for hills but I opted for Pint Striders instead, a social run with happy hour specials at the end. The heat index was over 100 degrees and temperatures were in the mid-90s
Running can easily be a solo sport so it’s important to build friendships with other runs. We are more successful with a support system, and it gives us more reason to celebrate our successes.
When running in the heat, the most important factors are hydration and humility. Drink water throughout the day beforehand and replenish promptly. Also listen to your body and be aware that it’s dangerous to push yourself as hard or expect to go as fast.
Always remember that simply running in tough conditions (especially heat) will make you a stronger runner. If you’re running in the heat, you’re already pushing yourself. It’s important to stay safe.
