Here are seven ways to make running in the heat more bearable:

*1.* Run by effort, not pace. Your body only understands effort anyway.

*2.* Run early when the temperature is lowest and the sun is weakest.

*3.* Run Trails where there is ample shade and no asphalt to radiate the
sun=E2=80=99s energy back to your body.

*4.* Lower your expectations. In adverse environments, performances won=E2=

*6.* Always start each run properly hydrated. If you run first thing in the

*7.* Carry fluids with you for runs longer than 60-90 minutes (or run near
public water drinking fountains). If you can find a sprinkler to run
through, all the better!
