Summer Running {Guest Post}

Happy Hump Day! 

As most of you know, I am away from blogland this month. Lucky for me - AND you!- I've got some great girls posting for me every week. This week, my bloggy friend and fellow MilSO Kym from Red, White, & Marine Wife, is posting. She offers some great advice on running, a great activity to keep busy during deployment ... and look great for your man or woman when he/she returns ;)

Hi everyone! My name is Kym and I blog over at Red, White,& Marine Wife. I “met” Jackie through blogging and when she asked if I would be interested in being a guest blogger, I was absolutely ecstatic!! I started blogging when my husband was away training for deployment, with the intention of documenting my life at home for my him to follow. Blogging has given me the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people, as well as fellow military spouses/girlfriends/fiancés.
During my husband’s time overseas, I’ve occupied myself with sending creative care packages, blogging, and running. Running is something I find great enjoyment in, and keeps me busy during my husband’s deployment. Keeping busy during deployments is extremely important, and whether it be running or blogging, it distracts you from the fact your significant other is half-way around the world.

As summer has quickly approached, finding ways to outrun the heat has been a major challenge. There are a few ways you can beat the heat, and owning a treadmill or going to the gym is the best answer, but for those of us running outdoors, planning runs around the heat of the day is major! Whether you prefer running in the morning or evening, try to avoid running between the hours of 10am-4pm as this is typically the hottest time of the day and will zap your energy in no time. Also, be sure to stay hydrated, wear light colors, cover your face by wearing a hat, and fuel yourself to get through the run. There is so much running gear out there it’s insane, but super fun to shop for!
