3 Things I Love About Summer Running

I know, usually, I go negative when we are talking about running in the summer.

My reasons are no different than anyone else’s: it’s hot, it’s gross, and summer is supposed to be chill out and be lazy time. Blah Blah Blah- you know the score on how I feel about running in the summer.

But I’m going to try to be positive here. There’s gotta be something I love about summer running, right?

Let’s see…

I love jumping into the pool after the run. That’s such a great feeling of relief and release. And minus the shoes, the tech clothes are basically swimsuit material so it’s all good.

I love feeling accomplished. I take things a little easier on the blog in the summer, so it’s a slippery slope. Take things too easy and boom- you’ve forgotten to write for a week. But the summer running keeps me honest there.

After a summer morning run, I usually am motivated to get stuff done BEFORE I crash on the couch with the kids.

In the summer, there is no option but to get up early before the heat sets in. So there’s this:

And this:

Atkins easy peasy meal plans for the low carb lifestyle. Weight loss | lose weight | Keto

And this:

So yeah, it’s worth getting up to see!

Look at that- I managed to stay positive about the blistering heat and humidity. 😉

I like your perspective, those sunrises are beauitful! I definitely don't "love" summer running but I'm trying to give it a chance and not be so miserable about it, haha!

The beautiful sunrises and sunsets make the challenges of summer running worth it. Its rare to get such beautiful scenes during the winter.

I am one of the "chosen few" who actually love summer running (well, most of the time LOL). Being sidelined (for another 6-7 weeks at least) has really made me appreciate not only the summer runs (sunrises, quiet city streets, being "done" before most of the world has awaken, etc.) but also EVERY run, no matter the time of day or temp.

As much as I hate running in the heat, I will always take that over the cold any day! The thing I do love is that I tend to be much slower in the summer, so by the time fall hits, I feel like the Flash! And my motivation is always at its highest during the summer!

Great point. Running the summers makes running in the fall feel so much better!

I had pretty similar reasons. I meant to mention the whole sunrise/sunset thing but forgot (because yeah, I threw that post together in about 45 minutes yesterday).

There are many things to hate about summer running -- but there are still good things about it!
