Pick Me! For the Team nuun Hood To Coast team!
April 6, 2012

Just as I promised, I have finished my application for the nuun Hood To Coast relay team!  I think this gives you, and nuun, a really good introduction to me!

So, maybe I should introduce my readers to nuun first before you see the video.  What is nuun?  So glad you asked.  It’s an amazing way to hydrate and get all the electrolytes and other good stuff you need without getting all those sugars in regular sports drinks, but you still get some really great flavors.  Best part? It comes in a tablet that you just drop into your water.  So, you can travel with it.  It doesn’t take much space and no need to worry about liquids or spillage!  I’ve been using nuun for a few years now, when my friend Barbie first told me about it.  So if you’re a runner, or just need to stay hydrated, go check them out!

Now, on to the video.  One of my athletic bucket list items is to run the Hood to Coast Relay.  For those of you not in the know, Hood to Coast is a 200 mile relay race that takes place over 24 hours (give or take) with a relay team of 12 runners trading off various legs of the race.  It starts at Mt. Hood in Oregon and goes all the way to the Pacific coast (hence the name).  It seems like a fun and challenging event and definitely something every runner should do once.

As you know, I’ve done a lot of different kinds of races, but I still want to add that notch to my running shoes.  So, hopefully with the help of nuun, I’ll be on a nuun sponsored team of women running bloggers (hello, what an awesome group of people to be on a team!) in August ready to rock those 200 miles.  So, if you like my video below, let me know in the comments!  This is the biggest part of my application and I’m thrilled to share it with you!

P.S. How awesome is that song?

And many thanks to Downtown Brown who helped get the awesome video of me and gave me some very useful constructive criticism on editing the video!

Exciting reveal coming soon
April 4, 2012

In an effort to meet one of my Athletic Bucket List items, I’m making an exciting reveal very soon.  See, I’d really love to run the Hood To Coast relay race this year.  And one of my favorite ways to say hydrated, NUUN, is making that possible for a few lucky women runner bloggers.  So, I’ve been working hard on a video application the past couple weeks and I will post it here for your viewing hilarity enjoyment.  But not only is this a reveal of my video, but you’ll get to see video and photos of me running and hooping (not at the same time).  That’s right, I’m temporarily breaking my anonymity rule and you will actually see me in action!  If nothing else, it’s worth it just for the background music.

So stay tuned…
