The summer is a wondrous time in which to run, train, and simply enjoy exercising outdoors. But make sure you pay heed to the following tips when you’re getting ready to head outside into the summer heat.

There’s something about summer that gets many of us out of our rocking chairs and into our running shoes. Whether it’s the green, lush landscape or the sense that the whole region is flush with life, running in the summer is quite enjoyable. That said, the summer can be a time of oppressive heat, and without taking proper precautions it can actually be quite dangerous to run during the heat of the day. The following are some key tips to keeping cool and safe during your next summer run:

  • Run in the morning: The coolest part of the day is often right around dawn, so gear up and hit the road for a quick early morning run. You’ll feel great all day, the temps are often up to thirty degrees cooler in the morning than in the early afternoon, and you will enjoy a less intense sun.
  • Dress appropriately: Lightweight, loose fitting clothing in light colors will help keep you from overheating. Moisture wicking clothing that is specifically designed for running is engineered to remain comfortable and breathable – even on hot days.
  • Hydrate: There is no replacement for hydration. If all else fails, consuming sufficient water prior to, during, and after a run is the most critical piece of advice for staying cool this summer. Drink appropriately before your run, and then consume at least 6-8 ounces of water every twenty minutes of active running. You can increase this amount if you still feel thirsty.
  • Keep your head appropriately covered: Hats offer terrific protection from the sun, but a tightly-fitted hat may prevent heat from escaping from your head. The head radiates a lot of heat, so either wear a loosely-fitted hat or one with a mesh top.
  • Slow down: There is no glory in ending up in the hospital due to overexertion. On hotter days, lessen your pace and run at 80% of your normal speed. Don’t worry about the impact of running off your normal pace – this is what any seasoned runner would do when faced with a hot day.
  • Know when to say when: There are times when it is too hot – even in the early mornings, to run safely. There are regions of the country where it can remain in the high 90s and low 100s – even during the early mornings. Avoid running on days that see temperature peaks and make up those runs on milder days. This is especially important if you have any health concerns that make you more susceptible when heat is related.

The tips above are a great place to start in helping you manage the additional strains of running in the summer heat. There is no replacement for preparation here – from hydration to picking the ideal time to run, to proper clothing choices and setting your pace slower, you’ll need to think ahead when the mercury rises. But don’t fear, with the proper precautions in place and a focus on appropriate dress and hydration, you’ll be out enjoying a safe summer run in no time.

BY SHAYNE MCCOY

Andrea Barber was one of many runners who participated in the #WhyRunningRocks National Running Day campaign.

The Tanners couldn’t get rid of famously ditzy Kimmy Gibbler. Andrea Barber, the actress and runner who plays Kimmy, will be making her way back into your living room with Netflix’s new Fuller House, a spin-off of the 90s hit Full House, set to air spring 2016. John Stamos, who played Jesse Katsopolis on the original show, broke the news to Jimmy Kimmel earlier this year. Andrea, who currently lives in Los Angeles, recently completed the Suja Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Half Marathon on May 31. Rock ‘n’ Roll staff caught up with the runner and talked about what the highly anticipated “fuller house” will look like and why running rocks for the avid Rock ‘n’ Roller.

The runner…

With 26 half marathons and 3 full marathons under her belt, it’s no surprise that Andrea’s favorite activity results in stinky socks. As Michelle Tanner would say when Kimmy slowly removed her own sock, “Not the sock! Run for it!” While she has stayed close with her Full House cast, Andrea has also been busy flying across the country to participate in running events with her We Run Social family, “a crew with the sole purpose of running all the miles and winning life on the interwebs.” Last year, Andrea was one of the few crazy runners that challenged herself to running two half marathons in the same day: The Avengers Half Marathon in Anaheim, and the Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Half Marathon on The Strip at night, equaling a full marathon.

Fun fact: Andrea says that whenever she arrives somewhere to run a race, she’ll text a friend and say, “I’m here for the weekend!” to play off one of her favorite lines from the show.

Why running rocks: “It knocks Gibbler’s socks off.”

Favorite race: “I love the Vegas race—the energy there is unparalleled. It’s my favorite.”

 The actress

While running is an important aspect of her life, Andrea is excited to be filming episodes of Fuller House with her “first” family. The show will be centered around D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron-Bure), Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin), and Kimmy. Similar to Danny Tanner recruiting his best friends to raise three girls in Full House, D.J. is a widowed single mom raising three boys and needs help. Since Andrea, Candace and Jodie are friends in real life, “There will be great female energy, it’s about relationships between sisters and best friends,” she says. The first episode will be a big reunion, and she’s hoping everyone will be on board. Other cast members will slowly be signing on doing cameos based on their availability throughout the season. You’ll have wait until next year to see if Kimmy’s feet still stink—hopefully she’s remedied that foot problem in the last 20 years!

Fun fact: Andrea revealed that Kimmy will also play mom to feisty teenager, Ramona (Perhaps this is payback?), who will be living under the same roof.

You’ve trained, you’ve prepped, you’ve packed your luggage. You’ve even taken the obligatory #flatrunner selfies of your race-day gear. But wait, there’s one more way you can prepare for the Suja Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Marathon & 1/2 Marathon:

American Textile Recycling Service (ATRS) is a proud sponsor of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series. Their dedicated team attends 7 Rock ‘n’ Roll races across the country each year. At these races they offer convenient recycling of unwanted running gear, including clothes and shoes, at the two-day Expo (RnRSD Booth #112). Then on race day, their team runs the first 5 miles of the course to pick up and recycle all dropped warmup gear. But there’s exciting news for runners who love to ROCK RUN RECYCLE: they are debuting a new opportunity to donate!

Donation 4

A green runner makes her ATRS donation at the #RnRDAL expo

It all comes down to the finish line, once you’ve had miles of scenic San Diego streets to give your shoes some great wear & tear. After a marathon, even the best-quality running shoes can be too used to re-train in. Plus let’s face it: you just bought a new pair from Brooks at the Expo to wear for your next race! So what’s a green runner to do with the old pair?

ATRS has the solution, and it requires just two simple steps:

1) Ask a friend, family member or other sideline supporter to meet you at the finish line with a spare pair of shoes (or go barefoot if that’s your thing!).

2) Toss your old pair in the finish line recycling cart, marked with our signature blue & white “ROCK RUN RECYCLE” banner.

Team ATRS clears dropped warmup gear from the #RnRAZ course

Right about now, you might be wondering: “But who wants my stinky, worn-down running shoes?” The answer is a lot of people! Although your running shoes may no longer offer the support and cushion a runner needs, they still have value. They could be resold in the growing secondhand clothing market to a low-income family who can’t afford brand-new footwear, or distributed as part of a disaster relief program to victims of floods or earthquakes. If they’re really in poor condition, we can break them down and recycle their individual parts. There are so many opportunities for a second life instead of letting them gather dust in your closet or take up space in a landfill!

Not only do your donations at the Expo & Race Day help keep San Diego clean & green, they also support a local charitable organization. Their nonprofit partners at Giving Children Hope (GCH) receive funding from ATRS for every pound of donated textiles at RnRSD. GCH uses these funds to support a variety of local and international assistance, including their We’ve Got Your Back program that distributes over 1,500 backpacks of nutritional food each week to homeless students in Orange County.

One small action on your part can mean the world to an individual or family that relies on GCH. To learn more about where your discarded gear goes and how ATRS supports its charitable partners, visit www.atrscorp.com/faq. Share your marathon experience with us on Instagram or Twitter by tagging @ATRSrecycling or by using hashtag #RunRockRecycle. We’ll see you on race day!

This guest blog post comes from everydayhero.

Luis Perez always made it a priority to set a positive example for his nine-year old daughter. From an early age, he taught her about the importance of fitness and healthy living. She would come cheer him on as he ran races around his adopted hometown of Santa Clara, California. So, when he heard about the Rock ‘n’ Roll San Jose Half Marathon, he decided to sign up for it. But he wanted this race to be different.

“This time, I didn’t want to just run for the sake of running,” he said. “I wanted to have a purpose. I wanted to find a cause I could get behind.”

 When he was signing up, he saw the option to fundraise through everydayhero. When scrolling through his options for organizations to support while training, he was thrilled to see one that empowered girls like his daughter—Girls for a Change. An organization dedicated to serving girls through after school programs and training sessions, Luis felt like it was a perfect fit. Not only would he be able to support a good cause, but it was a cause that helped the same local girls that his daughter went to school with every day.

“They have groups where girls can get together. If someone is trying to abuse or bully them, they can go to a group and someone will listen to them,” he explained. “It has such a great local impact by giving girls a positive place to learn and grow outside of school.”

 As he set off on his training, the prospect of making the world a better place for his daughter made all the difference on those long runs. The blazing California sun didn’t feel quite as intense on his shoulders when he thought about all the women that would benefit from Girls for a Change.

In order to amplify the impact of his efforts, he began spreading the word about his fundraising goal on social media. Initially, he found it challenging to join in—people were busy with their own lives and supported other causes. However, as weeks went on, his family, friends and coworkers saw just how serious he was about training and jumped on board.

When he finished another run, he could log onto his everydayhero page and see just how much progress he was making towards his goal. With every mile, every dollar and every new conversation, his Giving Footprint grew and showed just how large his impact on his cause was. And because of the hard work he has put in, Luis is just a few dollars from hitting his $700 fundraising goal.

“I run for fun and to keep my body and brain healthy,” he said, “but I think that all this sweat and pain are worth even more when it’s for a good cause. It’s incredible being able to help Girls for a Change provide resources and support to girls and see them gain the voice, ability and problem-solving capacity to realize their full potential.”

Whether it’s your own child or a friend’s Facebook post that motivates you to start doing some good for a cause, everydayhero has the tools you need to get started. From building houses to running a Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon, there’s something everyone can do. What are you waiting for? Get started today.

Every event brings thousands of participants to our start lines from all walks of life and each individual has a different story. We are fortunate enough to not only host events that celebrate the sport, but at times allow for the opportunity to celebrate how this community brings people together. Today’s post comes from Curtis Lobsinger, a runner and supporter of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Vancouver charity partner John Volken Academy.

At around twelve years old I started to build my relationship with alcohol. The people I looked up to drank and when drinking seemed to be having the time of their lives. I wanted that experience. It wasn’t long until I was getting drunk at every chance. By grade nine I was a full-blown weekend warrior, getting “pass out” drunk and experimenting with marijuana. Once grade ten hit I started trying stronger drugs. I loved being out of control, not feeling emotions, and the reputation that went along with the life style. Once I tried cocaine and ecstasy I fell in love. I felt powerful, attractive, and unstoppable. I felt I had the world in the palm of my hand and everyone was bowing down to me.

My life was spinning out of control. I lost my grasp of reality and became an addict. I needed to be intoxicated by some sort of substance and could not stand to be in my own skin. One morning after a weekend of partying, I landed myself in the hospital from an overdose. Once stable, I was shipped off to a detox center for a week. This opened my eyes to the recovery world, but I hadn’t had enough hard times yet to fully give it up. My life continuJVA_Curtis Half Marathon2ed on this path for many years. I would use, something horrible would happen, I would detox and sober up for a couple weeks and then use again. I needed to do something and the most rational decision at the time was to jump on a plane and move across the country to Burns Lake, BC.

Life was good for a short while, but quickly I realized the problem didn’t reside were I was living; it resided within me. The same old routine followed. This time I lost my driver’s licence and my truck was impounded. One day after losing my licence a friend and I decided to drink off what had happened. We wanted some cocaine, but he said he was too drunk to drive and pick it up. I didn’t even make it 5 minutes down the road before I crashed his truck. I don’t remember much of the rest of the night but I do remember the next morning.

I woke up in my house all alone feeling defeated. I stumbled downstairs to get a glass of water. It was then I saw a note sitting on the kitchen table. It was a suicide note that I had written to my infant nephew telling him not to end up like his uncle and that I loved him with all my heart. At that moment I told myself that I needed to get help and that I was going to be around to help my nephew through his life struggles. Fast-forward two months. I enrolled myself into a long-term addiction recovery program in Surrey, BC called the John Volken Academy.

Within the academy I discovered who I am in a safe and supportive environment. I also had the opportunity to learn valuable life skills and became an apprentice, completing all my hours in the skilled trade of meat cutting. I also learned healthy ways to exert pent up stress and emotions that would otherwise lead me to using. I became involved in physical fitness and developed a passion for running. From long distance runs to wind sprints, I love the feeling that running gives me. It helps me find the inner calm within myself and allows me to see life in a clear perspective. Since enrolling in the John Volken Academy I have taken place in two 10k races and two half marathons. One day in the near future hope to run my first full marathon. Physical fitness will always be a crucial part or my recovery and life. I am now in the last month of my 24-month treatment program and my graduation date is May 3, 2015. I am looking forward to grabbing life by the horns and living it how it is meant to be, not taking anything for granted, loving as much as possible, and passing on the message that recovery is attainable.

By Nancy Clark, MS, RD, CSSD

How you refuel for your recovery during marathon and half marathon training can make the difference in the way you feel and perform during your next workout. More than 20 studies support the benefits of recovering with the high-quality protein and nutrients in lowfat chocolate milk after a tough workout.

As a registered dietitian and Team CHOCOLATE MILK expert, here are a few trustworthy tips that are backed by science for proper recovery after all of your training sessions.

  1. After exercise, your body wants an adequate supply of :
    • Protein to reduce muscle breakdown and stimulate growth
    • Carbohydrates to refuel depleted muscle glycogen
    • Fluid and electrolytes to rehydrate the body to replenish what’s lost in sweat
  2. Plan ahead so you can eat well by having the right foods readily available at the right times. You cannot out-train a poor sports diet!
  3. If your training session will exceed 60 to 90 minutes, make sure to consume some fuel during the exercise to help maintain your energy! Popular mid-workout snacks include dried pineapple, (or other dried fruit) gels and electrolyte drinks, and sports performance gummy candy. Experiment during training to learn what works best with your body.
  4. What you eat after you work out is just as important as what you eat beforehand! Having a post-exercise recovery routine can enhance your performance at your next workout session, help reduce the risk of injury and boost your overall well-being as an athlete. Lowfat chocolate milk is a popular and effective recovery food and tastes yummy!
  5. As you know, your muscles get damaged during strenuous training sessions. Drinking lowfat chocolate milk after hard workouts gives your body high-quality protein with all the essential amino acids that have been scientifically shown to help build and repair lean muscle.
