Guest Blogger: Runner Kristen Zaitz

    We're happy to share another inspiring athlete guest post, this week from Nuun ambassador Kristen Zaitz.   When Life Hands You Lemons

My late grandfather always said, “When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.”  This is a quote that I have learned to live by, and more often than not in my particular case, it is Strawberry Lemonade – Nuun of course!

I have been running now for about 13 years and running is my passion as well as my profession.  I get to wake-up every day and know that I get to challenge myself by doing what I love, I get to be outside with nature, and I get to chase down my...

Patience at The Shell Houston Open

This past week at the Shell Houston Open, Nuun fan, Hunter Mahan, was the first to snag his second title of 2012 (the 1st being the WCG – Accenture Match Play) and his 5th career tour victory.  Over the four days of competition, Hunter finished at a total of 16 under edging out Carl Petterson by 1 shot and 3rd round leader, Louis Oosthuizen, by 2 shots. Hunter is one of those guys that kind of flies under the radar, but when you take a look at his resume it is no surprise that this 29 year old is now the...

The Fairy Godmother of Hydration

Jessica over at Pace of Me tried Nuun for the first time last summer. She shares her running (and hydration tales) on her blog, and recently had some awesome things to say about Nuun. Nuun was my fairy godmother of hydration.  It completely changed my approach to hydration.  From the first time I tried it, I was hooked.  I love the way that it tastes and because of that I became MUCH better about being sure to drink enough liquids throughout the day, whether I am running or not.  I have made it a habit (one might call it an addiction?) to drink a...

Guest Blogger: Jeff Dicky of the Scott Pro Mountain Bike Team

We always love to hear about our athletes’ many and great successes. It's inspiring to hear about the culmination of so much hard work, and equally fun are the photos of them in action. Receiving stories, notes, and pictures from the athletes we serve reminds us that not only is hydration important, but that it’s a key component and contributor to performance. Jeff Dicky of the Scott Pro Mountain Bike Team sent us his tale of the Scott Pro Mountain Bike Team’s success earlier this month at the Shootout on Angler’s Ridge. And the only thing that we like better than hearing from our...

Don't Call It A Comeback - Transitions Wrap-Up

After shooting 66 on Sunday in the final round of the Transitions Championship, Nuun user Luke Donald found himself in a 4-way playoff for the title. A 4-way playoff is almost unheard of and it really could have been more, the last round saw as many as six players share the lead! Even with a monstrous playoff Luke was well composed and closed them out early with a birdie on the par 4 18. He may not be the longest off the tee, but when it comes to making a clutch putt Luke is your man…and that is exactly how this...
