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.
I have a good stash of it right now:
Yep, that’s 9 tubes of it…
… 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.

you have to do it!… if for any other reason, to get to go to oregon (my favorite place ever)….if i am around, i will come cheer you on…and next year, i say we form our own relay team 🙂
also, my boyfriend and i tried nuun a few weeks ago and i like it a lot ~
well let me know if i need to go vote for you or anything! 🙂
i need to look up these nuun’s. i’ve heard about them a good bit, but i have no idea how they work/what they do.
I’d never heard of nuun before reading this! Sounds like a good way of replacing electrolytes 🙂 Good luck getting on the relay team, I’m sure you’ll rock it, and it sounds like a great way of meeting some new fellow bloggers.
Ali, You should definitely try nuun. I’m really sold on it! I love all the flavors too!
It would be a blast to meet a bunch of bloggers as part of the relay team. My blogging friends that I’ve met in person are awesome and there are several that I haven’t met in person but already feel like they’re friends and I’m sure once we meet in real life it will be like we’ve known each other all along!
This would be really cool!
YAY for applying 🙂 I’m applying too! Literally the best idea ever 😉 from a super cool company!
Yay! Glad to hear of someone else applying! I agree, it’s an AWESOME idea!
I hope we can be on the team together!!!!
Good luck!! I had never heard of Nuun until I saw this contest and I am now a convert, it is awesome!
I love nuun! I’ve been drinking it for years! It’s seriously my favorite! Good luck to you as well!
