My first 100 miler...staying cool for the long run

This photo was taking of me around mile 30 at San Diego 100 (my first 100 mile race).  My "Keep it Chill" cooling tank, sleeves and neck gaitor (and this delicious gu) saved my bacon as I was heading into the warmest sections of the grueling course (temperatures topped out at 109f in the canyon).

Our Keep it Chill collection features tiny xylitol-infused hearts on the inside of the fabric which activate with moisture and create a cooling sensation.  By keeping ice inside my neck wrap and sleeves, I was able to keep the fabric moist over the many miles which kept me cool.  (If you look close, you can see goosebumps on my skin - it really works!).
