In brief: Fluids while running

One can carry a water bottle (awkward) or invest in one of those hydration backpacks that have tube from backpack fluid supply (water, sports drink, vitamin water, mineral water) to/near mouth so one can drink when desired.
Running at times of day when the heat & humidity (or heat index) are in a comfortable range will help the body's cooling system work more effectively.
