1. Fellow Georgia heat survivor, Miranda over at Miranda in Motion loves to run where there are creeks so she can splash around to cool off.
Because I Can (and from my Ragnar Trails Atlanta Team) runs with a bandana in her hand to constantly wipe off sweat. Mid run she pours water from her fuel belt on it to cool down. She also plans her runs to go through a park that has a water fountain so she can re-fill.
I didn't have a picture of a bandana, so I used a picture of the beach (both start with B and are good ways to cool down. I'm sure Lisa won't mind.
3. To Beat the Texas Heat, Tina at Gotta Run Now likes to stop at water fountains to put water on her neck, arms and legs.
Probably not the type of fountain Tina was talking about, but refreshing none the less.
4. Abby from Back at Square Zero runs with hydration and heads out early as she sweats it out in SC.
Full disclosure: This might be a sunset and not a sunrise, but you get the idea.5. Raina at Small Town Runner likes to beat the heat by jumping in the pool right after a long run through the Pacific Northwest. (I'm so jealous).
A dip in a pool post summer long run might be the best thing ever.6. Also Beating the Texas Heat, Beth from Racing Robsons fills her Camelbak with ice to keep her back cool and have ice water to drink.
I don't recommend filling your Camelbak with ice cream, but it's another great way to cool down.
