On Monday I will be celebrating the 4th of July by running in the Baytown Bud Heatwave 5 Mile Run in Baytown, TX. As the name suggests, it is going to be hot, about 80 degrees at race start. I hadn’t intended on running this race, but signed up after I learned the Hubs was going to be out of town… a girl has to have fun too!
I have come up with 5 strategies to not sizzle out on the upcoming race:
- Stay hydrated!
- Listen to my body.
- Take walking water breaks, if necessary.
- Load up on sunscreen.
- Have fun … enjoy the race and the after party!
Is anyone else racing on July 4th?
