The last Wednesday of the month means it’s time for the running round up with five of my best running friends. This month, it’s all about speed, even at the height of hotness. Don’t let the sun and humidity keep you from the track. You can run fast and stay cool this summer…you can also run on a treadmill. We have all the options. You’re welcome.

Now that you know how to beat the heat out there, here are five workouts you can do. Just add ice:
