Okay. So I have been talking about it for weeks. And some of you, ahem Alma, have been waiting for me to post it. So if you want to scroll through why I love NUUN and all of my hard labor pictures and below to the video…be my guest.
I was reminded of my first intro to NUUN-it was at my first marathon-RNR Seattle. My friend Rob and I bought some at the expo but Coach Tommy said to never try anything new before race day. So it had to wait. I did try it after the race-and I really enjoyed it.
Since then it has become a staple in my training and day to day activities. It is so much lighter on your stomach than a powerade or gatorade. In my opinion, it is also cheaper and easier to keep around the house. I keep a big stock of it in my pantry and have a variety of flavors. They key is to pick it up at a race expo-you can get a deal and it’s only 2 for $10.
My current fav’s are the grape (which they give back to LLS so I love that), kona kola and a mix of half orange and half tea. Don’t get my wrong-I have four other flavors in the rotation too-those are just my favs.
I remember seeing posts last year when applications were due for HTC but I didn’t think I would have a chance-I was still somewhat new to the blogging thing at that point. I LOVED seeing everyones posts on the 2 teams from last year after they finished the race. I knew back then I would apply.
For the past 2 weeks…this is what I have been working on.
|Grape NUUN. I do love the flavor, but chose it because of the ties to Team in Training|
|putting the “base” hard circle and fabric together|
|fabric glue is a big ole mess|
|cut out fabric letters and glued to base along with the velcro|
|stenciling each and every little word|
|final product. little touches down to the grapes and the LLS blood drop.|
