Dear Sports Scientists: Will drinking fluids keep me cool?


I've always been a believer in drink to thirst. I remember once getting caught with frozen water on a 2.5 hr run and essentially not drinking anything. I had no cramps or other issues, and my pace was nominal. Though training with 50 lb of water on your waist does have a training effect (like carrying 50 lb of anything), just don't race with it.
