How much water do you drink before your runs? It's very possible that you're completely hydrated. Try doing your usual routine up to an hour before your run and don't drink anything during the last hour. That would let your body process all the unwanted water. You won't get dehydrated in an hour, unless you roll out of bed and go running immediately. Bring some water with you and take small sips along the way and see if that makes a difference.

It's just weird, 'cause I'm only drinking 12oz of fluid, but I'm peeing a LOT more than that.
Also, urine color is generally a pretty good indication of hydration, I think (thirst isn't usually... it takes a while for your brain to send out the thirst signal). You will have to pee even if you're dehydrated (body still has to get rid of excess electrolytes) but it will be way darker.

Definitely drink right after you get out of bed. Do you drink because you are thirsty, or do you feel that you must?

Please do not give up your COFFEE
Yeah, that sounds like MI--we rarely get hot without also being humid. On the rare occasion when it is hot and not so humid it's actually pretty nice.
I love running! Where else can we talk about ALL kinds of bodily functions and no one thinks it's out of place?
