IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ: Heat, Hydration, and running safety

Obviously temperatures are going up, so just want to remind everyone of the critical need to carry some form of hydration on your runs. Its simple and basic and essential. Quit simply, people die from heat related injuries connected to lack of hydration during exertion.

And even if you are carrying fluids with you on a run, pay attention to your body. If you become light headed, dizzy, have a headache you need to discontinue exertion until symptoms resolve.
