The summer has been sizzling with high temperatures and humidity but it has not stopped runners from getting out for a run.
This week ahead is no exception. Lots of people are in the midst of training for longer fall events like half marathons and marathons. Getting out early in the morning is the key to getting in a comfortable long run.
Several summer series have concluded but several are still ongoing and the race calendar next weekend is quite busy.
Several running club’s host regular group runs during the week. They are very casual and generally all are welcome for all ability levels.
So don’t let the heat get you down. Get out and run and there are lots of options all over the area.
And starting this Wednesday there will be lifeguards on duty in Ocean Grove from 5:45 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. for anyone interested in some cross training or an ocean swim. The water is perfect this time of the year!
