Excellent idea IrishLad. I much prefer running outside to the gym any day of the week. The air outside really helps keep you cool which for us big guys is more of a hassle than the fitness part, at least for me!

I get much hotter on treadmills so have to quit earlier even though the rest of me could keep going.

I even prefer outside running to weight training! It's tougher but the results are better.

A few things that work for me on a run:

1) bluetooth headphones, sweat resistant ones.

2) I keep a small towel/flannel in my pocket to wipe the sweat off me when I run. It really helps.

3) Oh, and I got a Nike+ watch. It's GPS so I can record my distances, speed and times. It is wicked.
