Summer is a great time to seek out fresh, local produce. It's great for runners' nutrition, and for everyone. Buying local produce means that you are not only supporting local businesses, but you are getting fresher food that hasn't had to travel across the country.
I try to eat as much fresh produce as I can in the summer, and I wish I had room to freeze more, but I always freeze some blueberries and zucchini.
If you are ambitious, and you have the freezer space, buy extra squash, peaches, berries, or whatever you like best, and freeze it.
