Record breaking temperatures across the northern hemisphere this past summer are more than likely a harbinger of what is to come as climate change becomes more and more a feature of our lives. How to manage training and racing in the heat will become vital to staying healthy and to finding success. In the medical mailbag coach Juliet Hochman and I discuss some novel ways to hack your physiology and cool yourself down when things get hot. Plus, a conversation with Ironman age group athlete Dylan Davison. Dylan has had to overcome more than most on his way to the start line of the 2024 Ironman Chattanooga including the loss of his stomach. He hopes to become the first athlete to complete a 140.5 after a total gastrectomy. Learn about his journey and how he perseveres.
