Episode 13: IV hydration/Daimeon Shanks/IM & 70.3 Lake Placid

In this episode the TriDoc gets wet looking at the evidence behind intravenous hydration. Companies have sprung up all over the place offering mobile IV hydration services and are starting to market to athletes. Is there anything to this or is this just one more way to separate hard working and training athletes from their money? Daimeon Shanks is a former bicycle mechanic for EF Education First and spent many years on the pro tour. He then owned and operate the Boulder Service Course, a high end bike service shop in Boulder, CO. He closed that up to pursue a career in law school in 2015 and he joins me to talk about all of that. The triathlete Routard visits the Adirondack region to give an overview of the 70.3 and IM races in Lake Placid.
