    For me, its the love of sweat.... Big grin. Plus, its nice to run with a minimal amount of clothing. Just me, my skin, a few pieces of cloth and mother nature...God it great to be alive. Clowning around Clowning around PS - I just love the feel of the heat on me and I can always think back the the days when I was freezing my ASS off.... Shocked


    Needs more cowbell!

      The heat slows me down a lot, but at least I know my footing will be sure and I don't fear frostbite or frozen snotsicles. Big grin k

        I like getting up nice n early...it's not too hot but still warm enough to enjoy the runs by the lake. Or, late evening runs as it is cooling off. If it is too hot, I take it real easy and enjoy the sights while they are less blurry Smile
          It's still in the low 60's when I run. I'm not going to complain about being cold because I know that July and August will bring the heat. I do love running early in the morning and feeling that early morning sun warming me up. Big grin Although, what with June gloom and all, I won't be seeing that for a while either.

            Early morning running. Breaking a good sweat before the sun comes up. Finishing a run just as the sun breaks the horizon in the East, and taking in a gorgerous sunrise as I stretch and cool down.
              What keeps me going is what will happen if I DON"T run in the heat! I've got races planned over the summer and I would DIE if I tried to run them without getting some hot running done. Last race was in the 90's.

                      It's still in the low 60's when I run.
                      Wow. It's in the low 100's when I run. Yeah, viva Las Vegas!

                        yeah. and I'm still running in long sleeve shirts. Inlanders are definitely sweating. It's probably 10-15 degrees warmer a couple more miles inland. We have an average year round temp of 65 here on the coast...

                            Ditto! Last Aug. I visited a friend who lives in El Segundo...she is only a mile or so from the ocean. It was GORGEOUS when we were there. Though the day we ventured into LA/Hollywood it was MUCH warmer. I would LOVE to be able to live in Cali and run near the beach...always comfy temps. k

                              Chilly 56 on my run last night ... and 55 in Seattle right now! We have moderate running temps here ... now if I could just get it to stop being so WINDY. We get hammered with some heat in July and August too. If it is hot outside I run near the ocean -- the air coming off the water helps cool me off! Smile

                                Even in the Great White North we are enduring 90+ temps! Humid temps too Dead
