Just as important as conditioning a strong, powerful dog team, the musher must also be healthy and fit. During races and training, mushers ski pole and kick or run up the hills next to the sled. Through all my years of athletics including nordic ski racing, cross-country running, and collegiate soccer, I've never cramped as often as I have while sled dog racing. Perhaps it's because of the cold temperatures or multi-day events giving your body little time to recover. Or perhaps it's because I have to make myself stay hydrated since I don't necessarily feel thirsty at -20F. Whatever the reason, a product that alleviates cramps as well as provides the extra vitamins and nutrients to give my body a boost is GOLD. Thanks Wilderness Athlete for creating a product that hydrates, energizes, and improves my overall health!
