Listen to the episode if you’re curious about what goes on in a medical tent—and what happens to runners who stop in one during a race. Sarah and co-host Amanda Loudin talk with two veteran medical professionals who have staffed countless race medical tents. The guests share:
-tips to avoid a visit to the medical tent;
-protocol for getting runners back out on the course;
-details of heat stroke, and when it’s time to be sent to a hospital;
-items at runners’ disposal in a medical tent; and,
-moving memories from a 2013 Boston Marathon finish line medical tent.
Sarah and Amanda talk about the quirks of new college students before the first medical tent gal joins around 7:54.
