It’s snowing in Chicago today, but I’m not giving up on summer yet.  It’s coming and I can’t wait!

What comes out for summer? Running shoes!  Are you taking your runs outdoors yet?  Here are three tips for taking care of your feet on those summer runs.

Summer Running Tip #1

Wear the right shoes.  If you injure your feet, you’ll be sidelined for who-knows-how-long.  Every week without a run puts you further and further behind in your training.  The proper shoes make all the difference.  According to Runner’s World, you should replace running shoes every 300-500 miles.  Do you keep a log?  If not, you might be surprised how fast those miles add up.

Summer Running Tip #2

Dress for 10-20 degrees warmer than the actual temperature.  It’s time to retire those long sleeve shirts and jackets.  Warmer temperatures make it even more important to have the right running apparel.  Technical, performance wear is best any time of year but especially in the summer.  Remember, no cotton!  Don’t forget your socks – socks designed for running will make a big difference.

Summer Running Tip #3

Stay hydrated.   According to, “By drinking throughout each training session you will keep your blood volume close to normal levels, which in turn keeps your sweat rate high. And since oxygen is delivered to the muscles through the blood, maintaining your blood volume through drinking also enables your heart to deliver more oxygen per contraction, so you perform better than you can if you allow your body to become too dehydrated.”  Your feet may swell or contract when you run in hot weather, it’s time to take another look at how you lace your shoes for a comfortable fit.

Oh, sweet summertime! I’m teaming up with The Invention Brothers to give you a chance to win a fabulous new beauty exfoliator called The SKOOTHER® Skin Smoother, as well as an iPad Mini! Have you heard of the SKOOTHER? It’s the most effective way to quickly and easily smooth rough skin and calluses on your feet, heels, elbows and hands, and it’s unique design makes it much more effective than pumice stones, emery pads, metal graters (ouch!), motorized sanders, and other skin-smoothing gimmicks.

Skoother Skin Smoother

  • – It conforms to your body, making it quick and easy to use
