US Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine, Natick, Massachusetts 01760, USA
Sports Med 37:320-3. 2007..The recent generation of a nomogram that predicts changes in finishing time consequent to changes in weather conditions offers runners and coaches a tool for use in developing marathon race strategy...
- Impact of weather on marathon-running performanceMatthew R Ely
U S Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine, Natick, MA 01760, USA
Med Sci Sports Exerc 39:487-93. 2007..Marathon running performance slows in warm weather conditions, but the quantitative impact of weather has not been established...

J Appl Physiol (1985) 110:1534-40. 2011..g., under fingernails, on arm hair), then decrease with extended sweating and approach those measured from the scapular region...
- The effect of heat acclimation on sweat microminerals: artifact of surface contaminationMatthew R Ely
U S Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine, Natick, MA
Int J Sport Nutr Exerc Metab 23:470-9. 2013..The observation that comprehensive cleaning of the skin surface negates sweat micromineral reductions during prolonged sweating raises the question of whether the reported HA effect is real or artifact of surface contamination...
- Neither cloud cover nor low solar loads are associated with fast marathon performanceMatthew R Ely
US Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine, Natick, MA 01760 5007, USA
Med Sci Sports Exerc 39:2029-35. 2007..This information can be found in anecdotal reports, authoritative reference books for runners, and scientific publications alike, but it lacks a comprehensive review...
- Effect of ambient temperature on marathon pacing is dependent on runner abilityMatthew R Ely
U S Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine, Natick, MA 01760 5007, USA
Med Sci Sports Exerc 40:1675-80. 2008..Warmer weather negatively impacts the finishing time of slower marathon (42.2 km) runners more than faster runners. How warmer weather impacts runners' regulation of effort (pacing) leading to the decreased performance is poorly understood...
- Evidence against a 40 degrees C core temperature threshold for fatigue in humansBrett R Ely
US Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine, Thermal and Mountain Medicine Division, Kansas St, Natick, MA 01760 5007, USA
J Appl Physiol (1985) 107:1519-25. 2009..Our observation that runners were able to sustain running velocity despite T(re) >40 degrees C is evidence against 40 degrees C representing a "critical" core temperature limit to performance...

Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine, Thermal and Mountain Medicine Division, Natick, MA, USA
Int J Sport Nutr Exerc Metab 21:65-70. 2011..The use of caffeine supplements in athletic and military populations has increased in recent years. Excessive caffeine consumption in conjunction with exercise in a hot environment may predispose individuals to heat illness...
