Last weekend our local Girls on the Run chapter held their 5k run! The Girls on the Run program combines training for a 5k run with lessons that inspire 3rd-5th grade girls to recognize and honor their individual strengths and talents and to celebrate their inner selves.

National Geographic's Beyond the Puck offers a rare glimpse into the life of eco-warrior and NHL hockey player Andrew Ference. "But he is not your typical hockey player. Andrew's an environmental activist, a Stanley Cup champion, the husband of a former professional snowboarder, and father of two girls. He rides his bike to “work” and doesn’t mind being called a tree hugger. He’s just as comfortable checking opponents on the ice as he is teaching kids about composting in elementary schools," according to National Geographic. Want to know something else about Andrew? He uses Nuun to prepare for his NHL games! Be sure to check out the whole video, but...Read More

Athens was more than ecstatic to see Hudson return and take home the title. The stands went wild when Hudson holed out on his last hole of the...Read More
Samantha over at Running and Cupcakes just posted a great review about the importance of hydration and Nuun's role. In fact, it was so awesome that us here at the Nuun office may have learned a tip or two! Such as, keep Nuun everywhere, as in your purse, workout bag, at your desk, and in your kitchen, and never be without a bottle to fill. Samantha begins by telling a story about her dehydrated days. Can you guess how the story ends? Once upon a time there was a Little Cupcake (we’ll call her LC for short) who drank nothing but soda. And...Read More
How do we convince folks to toss their high-calorie electrolyte replacement beverages? Usually, just by letting them test out some Nuun! SoccerCleats101.com recently tried Nuun, but was a little apprehensive to integrate something new into the routine. Swayed by our long list of ambassadors - as well as the effective reputation of our product - they gave it a go and had some great things to say: "Having spent a few weeks finishing off one container of tablets, I have to admit I am a huge fan. The key difference is that these are very light and produce a flavored water rather than the...Read More
