“Heat has a huge effect; it makes you a lot more tired, and move slower,” @ryansandes says.
“Mentally, it's also harder. The good news is the body does adapt to heat really well.”

Congratulations @kilianjornet for your truly impressive ninth win at Zegama!
@zegamaaizkorri, a marathon with 2,700m of overall ascent, is part of the #goldentrailseries and has earned its place among the top mountain races.
“We set off very quickly and I was afraid I’d be made to pay in the second half of the race but I managed it well. In any case, what really makes the Zegama isn’t the runners but the public and the organisers who make it a very special race,” Kilian said at the finish.
