Ladies and gentlemen, it's September. That means we all start mentally fooling ourselves into believing that the hot weather is almost over (yeah, right). One little trick is to head outdoors for some strenuous exercise because, you know, that sweat is from working your body, not the heat (eye roll).

Join the collective state of denial for the Sole Sports Running Zone Cross Country Festival. The 5000-meter run (just a little over 3 miles) loops through Silverado Golf Course. Medals will be awarded to the top five racers in three age groups.
