This sentiment expressed by anthropologist and author Zora Neal Hurston effectively captures the spirit and ethos of the South Fulton Running Partners (SFRP).

Deep water running was an essential tool helping me to train for the Flying Pig Marathon in Cincinnati OH this year. I started running regularly after the birth of my daughter in 2006. Since that time I have struggled with various injuries common to runners including black toenails, blisters, Achilles tendonitis, ITB syndrome, runner’s knee, and even a stress fracture in my femur.

Hot Weather Running Tips from the RRCA

08/04/2010 - 10:27

The Road Runners Club of America (www.rrca.org) wants to remind the running community about the importance of following our hot weather running tips. Running in the heat of summer can be dangerous if proper precautions and preparations are not followed.

* Avoid dehydration! You can lose between 6 and 12 oz. of fluid for every 20 minutes of running. Therefore it is important to pre-hydrate (10–15 oz. of fluid 10 to 15 minutes prior to running) and drink fluids every 20–30 minutes along your running route. To determine if you are hydrating properly, weigh yourself before and after running. You should have drunk one pint of fluid for every pound you’re missing. Indications that you are running while dehydrated are a persistent elevated pulse after finishing your run and dark yellow urine. Keep in mind that thirst is not an adequate indicator of dehydration.
