Well for something like WS, laying down in the water for a few minutes at every stream crossing comes to mind. Doing that without wicking clothing might be pretty uncomfortable, though.

My ramblings on core body temp as a detriment to performance. It ties into the discussions about Waterlogged, and is an extension on the moisture-wicking discussions we had awhile ago.

The question- what else can we do to reduce body temps when the natural mechanisms aren't enough? Let's assume we're racing and performance is the goal.
