Beating the Heat

There's no way to beat it. As The Crumple showed, I'm no fan of running in warm weather. But unless I find somewhere temperate to live and climate change remarkably ends, it's simply a reality that it's going to get hot. But more than the heat, the humidity is what makes running in the summer so hard. There's no oxygen in the air, yet runners don't get any benefit from it, like running at altitude. I'm in the midst of the heat-acclimation period, when runs are hard and slow. Two weeks straight of running in the muck, the body adjusts. Until then, it just sucks.
