Ask the Expert: Twitter Q and A on Heat, Hydration, and Summer Training

Summer running brings sunny days, great races, higher mileage, hard track workouts…and the heat.  Humid, hot, sunny runs and races can challenge your ability to regulate body temperature and stay hydrated.  This affects training, recovery and performance.  Join Hartford Marathon Foundation (@RunHMF) and experts from The Korey Stringer Institute at University of Connecticut in a Question and Answer Twitter session on training and racing this Friday (6/6 from 1-2 pm EST). The forum is designed to answer all of your questions about training and racing during the hottest months of the year. We’ll discuss topics such as hydration, heat illness, optimizing performance in humid conditions, and avoiding dehydration. How can you participate? Right now, or on Friday, tweet your questions directly to @RunHMF, making sure to use the hashtag #AskHMF in your question. Ask anything you want– no question is too big, small, random, or precise. On Friday, June 6, follow our feed on Twitter from 1-2 pm to receive your answer, or tweet a question real time as you think of it. Please join us in this exciting hour as we talk about science, research, health and running.
