Running Hood to Coast with Nuun….in three weeks!

by This is Carrie on August 9, 2011

I can’t believe it’s almost here.

During these last few weeks, I put together a little logo for our team (based on the chosen team name), brainstormed van decorating ideas and gotten to know my teammates.  I’ve also learned I’m the shortest girl of the group.  Sometimes I forget how short I really am.

I should’ve done way more training than I have. I’m blaming my toe.  But honestly, summer training has always proven tough for me.  I’ll have to compensate for my lack of speed with my cheerleading, van decorating, friend making, costume wearing, team building and snack eating abilities.  Everyone has their talents, right?

P.S. If you haven’t tried Nuun yet, now’s the time. You can get 25% off your order using the special discount code: afternuundelight (just make sure you spell it right!)

Disclaimer: I’ve trusted Nuun with my hydration for quite a while now.  I’m not just pumping it now because I’m running on their Hood to Coast Relay team.  I really like it. So does Todd. No sugars. No carbs. Just electrolytes and a light flavor (I’m partial to grape).

I puffy heart LOVE Nuun! I take it on all my runs over 3 miles. Seriously. Even some 3 mile runs have benefited from Nuun this summer. I need to go thru my stash to see if I should order some more & take advantage of that discount.

I love the logo you did… totally seeing it on a shirt, or side of a van! I super love nuun… just started training with it a couple months ago & it’s made a world of difference for me in the summer heat.

Glad you like nuun. I’ve had such great success with it. I’ve even got my husband hooked on it too!

The logo is amazing, so funny! Good Luck and have fun. I’m thinking I should order some nuun today.

*sigh* I’m your biggest fan. I really, really am getting discouraged with my running. Had big plans for my first half-marathon and that tanked, I can’t run enough during the week to get ready for it! I’m bummed.
Rock your Nuun run!

Misha! Don’t give up! Summer is the worst time for my training. I just can’t seem to fit it in. I kicked myself a few years ago for signing up for my first 1/2 marathon on Sept 1st. I vowed to never do that again. I ran it very unprepared. You will find the timing that works for you. We all have those periods of time in our life where running gets pushed to the bottom of the priority list. That’s okay! Just be ready to fit it back in as soon as you can. You will find a way and the time if it’s an important goal.
