Dehydration is something that can really sneak up on you, especially if you’re not aware of what you’ve been drinking and the type of activity you’re participating in. Here are some simple warning signs of dehydration and how you can best prevent these symptoms before they happen.

  1. Dizziness and confusion. Feeling “woozy,” dizzy, or confused while running can be a sign that your blood pressure has dropped due to dehydration. Since your blood is mostly made up of water, when you dehydrate, the effects can go right to your head—literally.
  2. Dark-colored urine. Keep an eye on both the frequency and the color of your urine. If you haven’t peed in the last two hours, it’s likely that you haven’t been drinking enough water. Additionally, if your urine is dark (i.e., the color of apple juice) rather than pale (like lemonade), you’re dehydrated.
  3. Dry mouth and dry skin. A dry, sticky mouth is a sign that you haven’t been drinking enough. Drink regularly throughout the day to avoid this feeling. Also, if your skin is dry or has lost some elasticity, it may be a sign that fluid levels in your body are low.
  4. Heavy sweating. Sweating while running is an essential way for your body to cool itself. The downside, however, is that it results in fluid loss. Be careful to replace fluids lost through sweat by drinking water and sports drinks during longer runs and on warmer days.
  5. Headache. When your body has a hard time maintaining adequate fluid levels, it has a hard time supplying adequate levels of blood and oxygen to the brain, oftentimes resulting in a headache. If you feel a headache settling in, reach for a glass of water or a sports drink to elevate hydration levels.

We’re excited to announce that Meb Keflezighi has been named Vice President of Running!  With more than 22 U.S. National Championships and a silver medal from the 2004 Olympic Marathon in Athens, Meb is ideally suited to develop training content to inspire runners of all levels, and make appearances at our events around the world. 

“I am thrilled to join the Rock ‘n Roll team at such an exciting time of growth,” said Meb, who was the first American man to win the Boston Marathon in more than 30 years. “Now that I’ve relocated back to San Diego from Mammoth Lakes, I look forward to working with everyone at Rock ‘n; Roll and share my story and my love for our sport with so many runners around the world. I’m excited to work with the talented staff  to develop training plans and social media content to help millions of runners ‘Run to Win’ – which doesn’t always mean first place, it means getting the best out of yourself.”

With his historic win at the Boston Marathon this year, Meb sealed his legacy as one of the world’s greatest distance runners. In 2009 he became the first American man to win the New York City Marathon since 1982, which was the first marathon victory of his career.

“Meb’s appointment as VP of Running is another tremendous milestone for us. We were looking for someone with energy, experience and a passion for the sport to power Rock ‘n’ Roll to higher levels of success. We are confident that Meb’s proven ability to inspire and motivate runners of all levels will get us there,” said David Abeles, Chief Executive Officer of Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series, whose office is located next to Meb. “We’re pleased to welcome him to our team, where he will play a key role working with our event managers, developing training content, interacting with our runners at Rock ‘n’ Roll events, creating social media promotions and much more. It is critical that we are completely authentic in everything we do in running and who better to ensure that than Meb, one of the most unique people and authentic runners the world has ever seen.”

Meb is a graduate of UCLA where he won four NCAA championships competing for the UCLA Bruins track and field team. After fleeing war-torn Enitrea, Meb’s family settled in San Diego in 1987, living alongside Balboa Park where he captured two California state track titles while attending San Diego High School.

He and his wife, Yordanos, currently reside in Mission Hills with their three daughters.
