When it comes to preparing for a relay race, decorating the vans is super important (at least in my book). Nuun hooked us up with big, white, 12 person vans – a beautiful, blank canvas for our “tie-dyed” psychedelic art to go along with our team name, AfterNuun Delight (which BTW, is a funny but not a very catchy tune–we opted instead to blast “Pumped Up Kicks” on repeat for 28 hours straight).
And I can’t talk about the vans without talking about our amazing van driver, Ken. Not sure what could’ve phased this 23 year old Nuun employee. He stayed calm, cool and collected under the pressure of navigating the relay course while trying to keep a van full of crazy, running, women happy. While I was worried we’d scare him right off the bat (especially me with my breast pump), I’m pretty sure he fell in love with us. Why else would he make us a mix CD?
P.S. Next year, Ken needs to make about 10 mix CD’s.
