Obsessed Runner Blog
Heat is the most dangerous condition to run in, It is imperative to respect these conditions and run as smart as possible, it can truly be a life or death situation. That said, I love extremes! On record hot day, a simple short run becomes my Mount Everest where the risk and rewards are high. My plans will include running short, shady loops from a lakeshore where I can plunge myself in at any sign of heat injury. I will start hydrated and will continue to hydrate with water and electrolyte replacement fluids. My run will be short but filled with adventure not available to me on a so called, "nice day!"
Run smart or don't run,

Yes, Run Woodstock is trail running, walking, camping and yoga nirvana but it's also a weekend of great live music! We have a couple exciting new bands in the lineup this year, The Honkey Tonk Club of Detroit, fronted by the soulful pipes of Liz from the Brunswick Brawlers, also, Mile High, a fresh new group ready to hit it big. Lemon James will be back like the ghost of Hendrix, along with the boys from across the pond, The UK Mods. Taste will be back to rock the last loud set on Saturday and the night will finish around the main campfire with an acoustic throwback by Double Take.
Come run and lose the fog,
