I use JZ and Gordo's suggestion now, but not as often as I should. The major issue I had was relying on drinking more to regulate core temps. After all, that's the advice typically given. I didn't view overheating as an overheating issue, rather a hydration/electrolyte issue. Reframing the problem makes problem-solving much easier as core temp can be managed before syptoms arise.
Anyone ever try running with a giant sun hat?

Similar to Gordo's suggestion, Noakes recommends putting water on the skin (sponging) to help reduce heat stress. I've been dipping my (moisture wicking) shirt into a stream about halfway through my runs lately. I don't know if this helps reduce my core temp, but it certainly feels good.
