Finding Motivation for Summer Running

Summer running….honestly for me, it is a struggle.  I probably should have asked Emily Speed to write this post since she is a committed summer runner.  But, I figured if you’re reading this, you are probably like me.  You and summer running might not have a good history.

We live in Florida.  It’s hot, it’s humid, and every year, I find it tough to stay motivated to run from May – August.  I come off of the Mt. Cheaha 50K feeling great and extra motivated, and I tell myself every summer that this year will be different.  I am going to run this summer.  And then, every year, I hang up my running shoes, and outside of my runs at Fixed on Fitness, I don’t hit the road.  This year, I’ve found a few tricks to help keep me going as the temps rise.

  1. Great blog. I need to lose my own story of I hate running and the expectation that I shouldn’t be so slow after all this time. I’ll work on it !
