So, I never officially mentioned it on here, but right around Christmas time, I was asked to officially be a brand ambassador for Nuun!!! Of course, my initial reaction upon receiving the email was:
HELL FREAKING YEAH!!!
I am more than proud to represent this company. I truly believe in the product itself as well as all of the people behind the curtains. Before Nuun, I drank a 1/2 Gatorade 1/2 water concoction on my long runs. It was awful. Sure, it got the job done, but it was so dang sugary and left a gross film in my mouth. No bueno. Nuun solved all of that for me.
Leg cramping? Gone. Stomach issues from sugary drinks? Gone.
Sorry, I probably sound like a walking (or is it typing?) advertisement right now, but I am so dang excited to represent this company at future races. Ooooh and I’ll get to rock this bad boy soon!!! Woot! I preordered mine today! You can get one too here!!
Speaking of races… On a whim, I took advantage of a Zozi deal and signed up for the Valentine’s Day Dash at Greenlake this weekend! It is the same one I ran last year with TriGirl, Rebecca, and Ann Marie!
One of my coworkers recently started running and so I will be running with her to bring her across her very first race finish line ever!!! No PR attempt for me this time, but I have BIG plans for that in the near future! I can’t wait for my coworker to experience that runners high from crossing the finish!
When was your very first race? What distance was it?
