Wrong. I love summer in mild climates, for the weather, not entirely for the activities it brings.
It's so absurd to say people are hypocrites for loving summer, for whatever reason.

As for "hot, sticky and dirty air", of course I hate it, that's why I moved to a better climate. I still love summer.

So you're 100% correct saying they like Summer "activities" instead.
You are wrong on so many levels....

I wouldn't say they are hypocrites, just strange to me lol. Like how can you like something but don't like certain things that associate with it? You either love something as a whole and not just parts of it. Personally, I hate summer, I was born in Thailand, it's hot, sticky and humid from what I remembered, and then my family moved to the Southern part of the US where it has hot and humid summers. My ideal location is somewhere like Maine or Washington or Northern California with mountains!

Wow!! So you're one of the people I see here in TX jogging, looking all happy and barely sweating, as I drive my car wondering, How in the world...??????
Ha!! I actually admire that, so please don't take my post the wrong way.

Perhaps I'd like summer if I lived in CA...

Well, I do sweat, I'll grant you this.

Oddly, I need this for my biological clock to reset itself everyday. I have SAD and only the sunlight at the peak of the day can help me. This is mainly for me to get a winter sun dose, but since my break falls during my lunch break I have this as part of my routine. On really hot days I'll jump in the community pool after the jog, but my body is used to this routine so many days it's not needed.

I run all year at high noon unless it's pouring hard (light rain is okay), it's icy (it's hilly here and since they don't salt here those hills get very slippery in the ice), or if the dewpoint is below 20 (I have cold dry weather induced asthma so those days I have to do the treadmill) or if I'm sick.

I guess you could call me a running fool!

Does it have to do with being depressed/sad during the winter months?
