Summer Temps are Here
Last Saturday, I ran a 10K in 66° weather with just 51% humidity. We've enjoyed mild temps in St. Petersburg this Spring, but that changed today.
Summer is coming, and the forecast for Saturday's Run For All Children 10K is 81° and 77% humidity. That's a big difference — time to increase your fluids so you're ready to running in the humidity!
Wear Light Clothing + Sunscreen
Lightweight, sweat-wicking clothing will help your body regulate heat during the race. A hat and sunscreen help, too.
Watermelon, apples, oranges, and berries all help you stay hydrated, and can be more appealing than plain water.
Good luck to everyone running this weekend!
This will be the 4th Annual Race for All Children. It's my first time running it. I'll post a review next week.
