When we are experiencing triple digit heat, there is really no good time to run, except before the sun comes up. This is an even better time than late in the evening, because the air has had overnight to cool down. It is at times like these that Greg refers to my dedication to running as insanity. I might have to agree with him unless I had found a willing partner in crime. My friend Talia, who is training to run her first half marathon in October in on a training cycle that compels her to run 4 miles this Monday and Wednesday come hell or hot temperatures. We planned to meet at 5:30 am at my house and get our run in with plenty of time to shower and head to work afterward. In a dream like state, we enjoyed our early morning run and I still had the energy to stick with the gluten-free plan for the rest of the day. On days like this though, you gotta kick in a bit more hydration. For Greg and I, our favorite go to is coconut water. Here is the brand we fell in love with while on Maui. I'm not at all embarrassed to say we ordered a case when we got home to feed our addiction.
