The Heat is ON!!!!

I have blogged about it before, but I need to mention it again.... 

I LOVE the summer!! I love the heat, the humidity, the sun, I love everything about it! We are in currently in the middle of a six day heat wave here in the Northeast. Six days of 90+ degree hot and humid weather!.... and I'm loving it!

I have no issues running in this weather. Sure, it's a bit tougher, I agree. And you have to make sure to stay hydrated. That's very important. But I can run through this humidity like a fish swimming in water.

I'm tired of people complaining about the heat. It's SUMMER! It's suppose to be hot! Drink water, jump in a pool, or in lake, or in the ocean.... go for a run :)   ... Get out there!!!!!

... My point is enjoy these days. We only get a few days of this. Winter will be here before you know it and then you can complain about how cold it is! HA!

Can't tell you how many times I get asked if I run in this weather. To which I always respond "The run's not going to run it self!"... and I always get the "You're nuts!" response :)

I'm Planning an 8 mile run tomorrow. Might do it first thing in the AM, if I wake up early enough. If not, it will have to be during lunch time at work.

This heat ain't got nothing on me!!!

You sound just like Jim. I wish I could embrace the summer like you two. I don't mind it as long as I run before the sun comes up, but man if there is any sun at all I'm like a wilted flower. Maybe some day I can be this positive about it!

You ARE nuts. All those people are right.

More power to you! I'm just miserable in this weather, but I will be up at the crack of dawn to get my 6 miles in tomorrow!

I like your attitude. I prefer to run in winter but only because here it is not a very cold season.
Enjoy the summer.

I'm with you - suck it up and look at it as a challenge; it only makes Fall weather better.
