It’s shaping up to be a toasty summer! That’s not stopping us from running, but it is making us focus on hydration. Whether it’s to keep your body going through a long run, to equip yourself for exercise in high temps or just to feel more comfortable on a run, proper hydration is key for a safe and enjoyable running experience.
So, how much fluid do you really need? To figure out your personal hydration needs, check out our “Sports Drinks and Hydration” article on our Learning Center. As a general measure, if you are well hydrated your urine should be the color of lemonade.
