Thanks for the link, Coach Nancy. I have heard the same thing from other sources. Your article helped to clarify the details.

on your race! I'm glad you were able to complete it. I hope your back is O.K. Take some recovery time and do some yoga/stretches.
I want to include a link to a VERY important article comparing dehydration vs overhydration because overhydration is becoming a BIG issue in the running community. It's become such an issue that the Road Runners Club of America, the USAT&F as well as running coaches across the country are being urged to get the word out. Dehydration is easily treatable and there have been NO documented cases of death due to dehydration but overhydration can kill. Because overhydration symptoms may mimic dehydration symptoms, many runners can find themselves in a dangerous situation.
Let your thirst be your guide.

Finished my race, this morning. Wasn't sure if I was going to be able to do it with the problems I've had with my back and taking too much time off, but I made it happen.
Think I saw Shrinkinrunner during the race, but didn't see her after the finish.
