Race Across America- A Report from Nuun Insider "Little Mikey"

Hey Nuun super-fans! It’s athlete ambassador Mike Gore checking in after a crazy Race Across America experience. [caption id="attachment_539" align="alignleft" width="145" caption="Nuun ambassador Mike Gore"][/caption] Just over two weeks ago, I was loading vans and an RV with a bunch of people who were essentially strangers. Currently, I’m sitting at home in Seattle, missing most of the crew and riders I became so close to over the journey. Our team (Team RWB) covered 3,010 miles of road with over 130,000 feet of climbing in 7 days and twelve hours. For reference, that’s 1,000 miles longer than the Tour de France in about one third of the...

Meet our 2011 Hood To Coast Lady Bloggers

For those of you who don’t know- there is running and then there is Relay Running. This ‘hipster cousin’ of the running world is rapidly gaining in popularity. The Hood to Coast Relay is one of the most highly sought after entries out there. What more could you ask for than stunning scenery, sweaty people in a van together for 24 hours, running in the dark with a headlamp and head-to-toe reflectors, tomfoolery galore (and maybe some singing?) before a dramatic finish on Oregon coast, and a giant party on the beach all with your new friends at Nuun? Not much we...

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...
