Nuun Ambassador Hailey Manning Shares her Wildflower Triathlon Experience: Car-camping, Fried Chicke

I was SO excited for Wildflower weekend this year after missing it last year for Ironman St George. I am training for Ironman Texas on May 21st, so there would be no taper, only a few days of rest before Saturday.  This meant I had set no expectations for myself as the field at Wildflower is always stacked with some of the best competitors from around the country…case in point, the podium ended up being from Washington, Idaho, California, Utah and Colorado and I think we might have had a Nuun athlete from every single state participating! Having zero expectations is always good as...

A Nuun Employee Shares Her Family's TNT Story

My personal experience with Team In Training (TNT) goes back to 2006. I now work for Nuun running their sponsorship programs. However, back then I was coaching full time and was approached by a group of TNT triathletes wanting some extra help with their swimming. I started doing a group technique session with them and the stories of camaraderie, long training days together, the race reports, and the mission of the LLS were very motivating to me.  I couldn’t get the idea out of my head. I became a triathlon coach for the Seattle chapter’s triathlon team soon after. Nuun had...

Nuun Athletes Dominate the First Half; Julie Dibens First Repeat Winner at Abu Dhabi

  Congrats to our Nuun athletes Julie Dibens and Leanda Cave!! Julie Dibens, the lady from Salisbury in south England, proved her mettle despite a difficult day leading from start to finish. Leanda started out with a bang and completed her ‘day in the office’ as the 6th place finisher. Both Julie and Leanda were well ahead of all other competitors with Dibens exiting the water 7 seconds up on Cave and almost 2 minutes on a smaller group, and all the other female Pros were at an almost 5 minute disadvantage at that point. The two leaders left the swim-bike transition side-by-side and then...

Team Type 1 is Rehydrating with Nuun Drink Tablets in 2011

ATLANTA, Feb 22 - Team Type 1 is filling its bottles with Nuun this year, a diabetic-friendly hydration tab with no carbohydrates that dissolves in water. Based in Seattle, Nuun is a sugar-free electrolyte replacement product that comes 12 to a package in five flavors: lemon-lime, tri-berry, citrus fruit, orange ginger and banananuun. Each tab is meant to be dissolved in 16oz of water, and can be broken in half for 8oz mixes. “I love them. The Nuun tabs are perfect for training because they don’t have any sugar. Sugar tastes good sometimes, but it’s not what you want on a 5-hour hilly base...

Holly Brooks ‘Cleans Up’ at West Yellowstone Super Tour

Holly Brooks, Olympic Skate Skier and Nuun Athlete Ambassador, knows a thing or two about staying hydrated when teeth are a-chattering. Originally from Washington, Holly spends most of her time training in Anchorage, AK, and never clicks in without having Nuun nearby. “I love the simple, satisfying taste of Nuun and the knowledge that I'm giving my body what it needs to train and race...and the lack of feeling bloated is a bonus! I wish I would have known about Nuun 2 yrs ago. I suffered from Exertional Rhabdomyolosis, which is basically severe muscle damage because I was so dehydrated. I passed out...

Nuun Ambassadors Take Over at Ironman Arizona

Our athlete ambassador program is flying high with the amazing Leanda Cave, making the podium in 3rd place @ Ironman Arizona! Another great feat after having an amazing few months where she finished 10th in Kona, won Ironman 70.3 Miami and finished second at the Foster Grant Ironman World Championship 70.3. Can you say 'en fuego'? Another Nuun ambassador represented the northwest with swanky style and a solid top-10 finish; Mackenzie Madison, from Eugene, placed 7th overall in the pro women's field. Then there is the unstoppable Chrissie Wellington, who is an admittedly all about the ‘nuunage’. After a disappointing withdrawal from Kona, she set...

Nuun at Cyclocross Single Speed World Champs (That’s CSSWC to you.)

The Nuun team took part in the 4th iteration of the Single Speed Cyclocross World Championships , a hallowed tradition amongst the serious (and seriously costumed) cyclocross racers that prefer one gear to twenty. As the Seattle region was thoroughly saturated by storms of biblical proportion, cyclocross racers from near and far (Portland, San Francisco, Denver, Vancouver) flocked to the city to race, or even just witness, this legendary feat of fitness and fanaticism, sprinkled with a lot of mud. The Nuun tent played it's usual roles of shelter and hydration station for our athlete ambassadors, ensuring that racers had...
