Running outside in August is not recommended by doctors. If I remember right, it has something to do with ozone levels, allergens, and....oh,yeah... the heat. But if you feel setting common sense aside or need to punish yourself for something, then Community Beer Company's got your back. At 7:30 a.m. Sunday show up at the little brewpub, 1530 Inspiration Dr., wearing as little clothing as possible. The Hottest Half is a joint half-marathon and 10K race along the Trinity Trails. Which course you pick is a signal of exactly how mentally unstable you are. If you survive, there will be beer and a cooling tent at the finish line. We're hoping they'll also send a search crew to peel the rest of us off the sidewalk. Entry fee is $50 and available at hottesthalf.com.
