    I'm standing where the elk was laying and Christie is taking this from where we were when it stood up. Crazy.

      Yay! I'm so excited the gym in Kuna has a sauna. I'm going to try sitting in it for a while after yoga on Monday.

      I think it makes a difference at races. It teaches your body to sweat efficiently, trains your mental toughness, and it's easy! My heart rate gets up to the same level as spin just sitting on my butt.

      I still have 7 paid for classes at Hot Yoga and noticed my body was much more adapted to the hot weather when I was doing that and the dry sauna sessions. I'm going to head back in there next week I think and start using up my sessions to get my body ready in case it's warm at Buffalo! I got a sunburn my first year there. Anything is possible,
