As Will Rogers famously said, “If you don’t like the weather in Oklahoma, just wait five minutes,” but even Oklahoma’s Favorite Son would have to concede that once we hit Memorial Day, it’s gonna be hot for a while. It’s also a certainty that if you wait for the “good weather” to hit Oklahoma you may only have about 2 weeks of outdoor workouts before you trudge back to the treadmill. This season, gear up for the sun and scorching temps with the best warm weather apparel, and look good doing it.
