It’s hot here in Oklahoma. I am still running and hiking but I live for the shady routes like above on Turkey Mountain. It’s all shade there but you have to watch out for ticks, chiggers, and snakes. Deet works wonderfully for the bugs, snakes, just keep an eye out if you can. My biggest problem is tripping on the rocks and roots.
My other route is Lafortune Park. No bugs, snakes, rocks, or roots there but a lot less shade except in certain areas.
It borders a golf course which makes it kind of scenic.
This is my favorite post workout drink (after I down about a liter of water.)
My advice for running or hiking in the heat is to take it easy and take lots of water.
