Hi Diana,
Thanks for sharing your story. I’m impressed with your level of physical activity. In general, exercise is good for overall gut health and GERD, but more extreme activities such as running, excessive cross training and weight lifting can increase reflux symptoms. There have been lots of studies done. I will post a few links. Your post actually inspired me to do a bit more reading on this subject. I will post again if I find something interesting.

Here’s one that didn’t find a connection of “every day exercise” with regard to LES pressure:
