Beat the heat

It's 84 degrees outside right now and I'm hydrating to make sure that when Melissa and I go outside I don't shrivel up. We're running 7 miles today as part of the half marathon training and we were too tired to head out really early today to beat the heat.
I'm thrilled that the new shoes, inserts and the rest I took were enough for my left foot to feel better. I was able to run 4.5 miles on Tuesday, 3 on Wednesday and 4.5 on Thursday per the half training plan and it was all pain free. The 7 miles today is a big test and I am a little nervous it is going to be too much so the heat is an unwelcome complication!
