nuun (my beverage of choice… other than diet soft drinks (or pop, as I call it), but that’s a whole other realm…) is putting together a team of female bloggers to run the Hood to Coast Relay in August… and I want to be on that team!
Seriously, I love nuun so I’d be a great representative to be part of their team. I drink a bottle of it each day (from a nuun-branded bottle). I’ve found that drinking it regularly makes me feel better when I do run, even in the heat. I’m hoping that carries through to the heat of the summer. But when I’ve been drinking it each day, I don’t end up as much of a salt-lick after a run as I usually do.
… and I have 4 more coming. (There was an awesome deal on Active.com’s Schwaggle… I couldn’t pass it up when it is something I use anyway!)
I mentioned the possibility of running the relay to my Team Challenge co-coach and he said, “You gotta do it! That would be amazing!” So I already have permission to skip coaching that day.
And my husband is fully supportive of me doing this too.
So now it just needs to become a reality. I’ll wear nuun apparel throughout the run (and on other days if needed!) and I will tattoo nuun on my arms (okay, maybe not… but I’d wear temporary tattoos with the logo!) and I would dye my hair with nuun (like people do with Kool-aid, but I don’t think it would work that well, plus it would feel like a waste of perfectly wonderful nuun!)
PS – I still owe everyone a review of the new nuun flavors, but here’s a preview… I like them a lot! Even the one I thought I might not like.
