    Just a heads up to all the guys getting older now....

    This is the first year of my life in which the heat has taken it's toll on me. Never in my prior years has it ever bothered me...

    It's one of the oddest sickest feelings when you're becoming dehydrated. And once you're at that tipping point... you basically need an IV immediately. Listen to your body....

    Listen to the body

    I'm a bigger guy and play tennis in FL, even in summer. There are nights that I'll lose 7-8.5 pounds in pure water weight. I'm know to take a sodium tablet, a one a day, and water up!!! Unfortunately some if the guys I play with get the neanderthal mentality that they're gonna be tough guys and not take time to recoup.

    Lost one at Cape Raquet club in 2018, a second at Ft Myers raquet and a 3rd dude passed out this past Feb in one of my matches and it wasn't even 85 degrees out.

    Be head smart, not head strong
