Gotta love free stuff.

Gotta love free stuff.

We came home from work the other day to find this Runner’s World magazine under the door (which is where our mail magically appears every day. Or every other day. Or sometimes twice a day). It said we get three free issues just for being with Team in Training. Already we’ve internalized all of the suggestions in “Beat the Heat” and sympathized with the writer of “The Marathon Experiment: How We Turned a Slacker into a Finisher.” We already feel that John “The Penguin” Bingham is our friend for life.

They tell us we can get a two year subscription for the price of one. Does the fact that we are actually considering their offer mean that we’re real live runners now? Just curious.

  1. Just a question, what are the suggestions for beating the heat? It’s pretty hot over here and it’s only going to get worse before it gets better, and so any tips would be appreciated. Thanks. :)

  2. Hydration is a big thing. But if you are looking for general tips, cooling your neck off seems to be the way to go. They recommend soaking a bandana in cold water (or getting it wet, anyway) and then tying it around your neck before you go running. It’ll warm up, of course, but you can cool it down again when you pour cold water over your head. I don’t know if that helps for general cooling down, but it sounds good for running. I guess if you wanted, you could freeze some bandanas and put them on your neck.
    I would be interested in anybody’s evaluation of the neck cooling method, as I have not yet tried it.
