How to Train for a Long Distance Race Through the Heat of Summer

After suffering through what felt like the longest winter ever, I know I'm not alone in welcoming longer days and warmer temperatures. It feels great to peel off the layers and not freeze when I step out the door. Except that for most of us, running in the heat is tough. Having trained for a few fall marathons through some really hot summers, I know that it can be a challenge to get those miles in when it's hot and humid.

Every single time I've signed up for a fall marathon or a summer half marathon, I ask myself why I do this! But over the years, I've gotten a little smarter about training for long distances in the heat. I thought I'd share some of the tips and tricks that have worked for me.
