Be Careful in the Heat!
Fort Worth Metroplex Chapter President, Robin Anderson, learned firsthand recently that it can only take 10 minutes to go from "I'm a little hot...to...I'm in trouble here!".
Robin was playing golf on July 4 in Texas, where heat and humidity in the summer go hand-in-hand. While she believed that she was properly hydrating during the round, that was not the case. Click on this link to read Robin's story and how fortunate she was to have great neighbors!
Robin shared the lesson she is taking away from the scare, "When it comes to being in the heat, things can go badly very, VERY quickly. Looking back, I should’ve stayed in the clubhouse until my body had completely cooled down. And then… maybe called someone to take me home.
Temperatures through July and August… and even into September… are going to be dangerous if we are not aware of how much we are hydrating and how much fluid we are losing. When you are outside in the heat… please, please, please be very careful. Take frequent breaks in an area where you can cool down, and drink plenty of the RIGHT fluids.
