Did you know that Colorado is so dry that we go through a cup of water a day simply by breathing? That's right a full cup. Furthermore if you are over the age of forty your body begins to lose the ability to let you know you are thirsty, which means you don't feel thirsty as often and are not drinking as much as you should. As a result we have a lot of dehydrated folks in this state. Dehydration can cause your muscles to cramp and it makes your connective tissue more sticky, which means it limits the muscle's ability to move. In general is just means unhappy muscles which are more prone to injury. So do yourself a favor with each meal make sure you drink a glass of water that way you are sure to get at least three more glasses then you normally do each day.
