Just one day after returning home from Boston, I received the incredible news that I was selected to run on the Nuun Hood to Coast relay team! Talk about a dream come true, I have longed to be on this very special team for several years and now that dream is becoming a reality! I am so incredibly grateful and honored. I can’t think of a better thing to do than to spend three sleepless nights with 19 other women doing the one thing that bonds us together: sharing our passion for running. I am so happy, I feel dizzy! If you are not sure what Hood to Coast is, take a look at this video
Can you stand it? When I watch it, my cheeks hurt from smiling!
Nuun recently put my bio up on their website right HERE. The company is composed of down to earth employees, most of whom are athlete’s themselves, so they really understand our needs. Nuun is one of the few companies that reaches out to it’s users via Social Media – they take the time to respond to you. I feel like I’m part of a family. Don’t be surprised if I come home with Nuun Tattoo one day. Yep, I love them that much. 😉
In honor of being selected, I decided to drink a few hundred gallons of my new favorite flavor, Cherry Limeade. It tastes reminiscent of a Sonic Limeade Slush, so I set out to make my own version, plus, it’s warming up here in SoCal, so I am craving something icy cold after my long runs and this really hits the spot!
Add a Nuun Cherry Limeade tablet with 16 oz. of water and let it dissolve – takes about 5 minutes.
Pour into a Slush Mug available HERE and let it sit for about 10 minutes.
I use a metal spoon straws to scrape the slush off the sides of the mug.
And one more way I am celebrating, is by giving one lucky reader a tube of Nuun Cherry Limeade, a Slush Mug, and Spoon Straw of their own! Waaaa Hooo!!
