Whew! It's getting HOT out there!

If you're like me, you love the heat and have been waiting -impatiently- for it to arrive. However, if you're like the rest of the world you despise the rising temps. But, it's here and as avid runners we want to keep lacing up.

We know that running raises your body temperature regardless of the "outside" temps. We know this because we sweat during winter running. Running in the heat is extra stressful. Not only running in higher temperatures but also in the humidity.

Here are a few tips to keep you safe while running and playing this summer.

  • Pay attention to humidity

  • Slow down/take breaks

  • Hydrate before, during and after activities

  • Dress appropriately-breathable- light colored clothing that is sweat wicking, and hats or visors

  • Take in adequate calories before your run or activity

  • Wear sunblock

  • Run and play in shaded areas if possible

  • Search out sprinklers to run through! It's so fun!

  • Know the warning signs of heat illness/ heat stroke

If you want more information regarding heat illness and heat stroke -here's a link to my podcast episode:
