The morning is going well against the heat

So far it has been a typical Indiana summer.

Although the temperature was at times in the high 80s, the humidity was even higher. It almost seems like it rains every day.

I always like to run in the early morning when the temperature has not yet risen to the highs of the day. A couple of times my run was accompanied by a light rain.

I avoid lightning and thunder. I recently read that lightning struck a car in China (driver survived) and struck a golf ball in the air on a driving range in Texas. So be careful out there!

No matter when you run, remember to drink. You may think you don’t need to drink water before, during, or after a run, but you do. This applies regardless of the season. We usually remember to drink when it’s hot. The medical experts tell us that we must always be hydrated at all times. And we have to do it when we work out in the gym too.

Even though a few races have been canceled this year, there are still many available for you to take part in.

Here are a few:

• August 7, Norris Insurance 5K; Start time 8 a.m., Converse, Ind.

• August 14th fish out of the water 5K; Start time 8:30 a.m., Highland Park Kokomo, Ind.

By the way, it was great to see some old friends at the 23rd Race for Grace on Saturday, July 10th.
