The Rose Bowl in Pasadena is a popular spot for many looking to get a workout in before the extreme heat of the day.

Many people were happy it finally felt like summer but said they could do without the humidity.

If you do plan on heading outside in the hot weather, remember to take lots of water and find shade whenever possible.
