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?
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:
So yeah, it’s worth getting up to see!
Look at that- I managed to stay positive about the blistering heat and humidity. 😉
