I love to run in the summer because I am chronically cold and if it’s summer that means I’m probably dripping sweat. Love it! ;)

I love summer running because I do better in hot weather- my body just moves better and I get a rush from the heat! I look like a neon tomato, but that’s ok :)

I actually started running last July in Dallas, TX. It was HOT, but I did it, and I’m pretty excited to do it again. Running in the cold gives me asthma, so I welcome the warm air.

I love to run in the summer, especially early on Saturday or Sunday mornings. I find the weather to be perfect, and the silence to be golden. I really the green scenery too, since living in Buffalo our weather is not so perfect most time of the year. Its something we def. do not take for granted!

Running in the summer is great because I live in eastern Canada and the temperature is fairly ideal for running, especially in the morning. And I get to enjoy the beautiful weather that doesn’t come around often enough!

I love to run in the summer because I live in MN and it’s COLD and WINTER for the better half of the year. Running in shorts and a tank, taking in the sun, and enjoying the lakes is the absolute best.

Call me weird, but I like waking up at an ungodly hour to beat the heat. I like the peacefulness of the early morning and watching the sun rise.
Also, I love drinking a HUGE, icy cold smoothie after a run!

I love summer running (in Texas!) for a lot of reasons! I love getting up early, I love sports bra running (yes, I’m THAT girl), and I absolutely love cooling off in water afterwards!

We’ve had such weird weather right now though that I’m trying to enjoy this cool weather while it lasts – we’ll have PLENTY of time to be hot!

One reason I like running in the summer is that the sun rises earlier and goes down later. This means less running in the dark!

Love to run in the summer– I’d say that it forces me out of bed early to get it done before the heat although I don’t have to worry about it getting too hot in SF like I used to back in NY.

I like running in the summer because it’s a welcome change after running all winter in the cold, snow, and ice!! :) But come the end of summer, I’m ready for a break from the heat, and then winter is a welcome change, haha! I live in NH, so we have pretty drastic seasons, and it’s nice to have the variety.

Greatest thing about running in the summer is wearing shorts and tanks, just less layers all together. The scenery is a little better than the depressing Midwest winters too!

I love to run in the summer for a bunch of reasons:

4. If it rains, at least it’s still warm enough to run!
