Trail Runner Magazine Hypothermia Article by Sarah Lavender Smith

I met, I say met like that because we haven’t actually ever talked face to face but have had a few phone conversations and chats over the internet, almost two years ago when she was looking to talk to someone about how ultra running had affected their relationship with their spouse.

She a totally cool west coast ultra runner, and we clicked right away and have been in touch ever since.

She had a very similar hypothermia experience this fall at Wasatch and it sparked her interest in altitude and hypothermia, so she contacted myself (after reading my DNF race report) and also Anna Frost who had a similar experience during Hardrock 100 to hear how it affected us.  Fortunately for the two of them, they finished their races.

Anyway, here’s her informative article in Trail Runner Magazine on how to avoid hypothermia at altitudes you aren’t used to.
