This weekend, like all others, dozens of nuun athletes are preparing for races and competitions all over the USA and Canada. The athletes will make sure they have their “race kit” (shoes, outfit, race bib, timing chip, water bottle, etc.) laid out and ready to go. They will be thinking about their pre-race hydration and nutrition, and perhaps even how they will celebrate post-race (usually a bit different than what they consume pre-race). These races might be the culmination of months or even years of training.
At the same time all that is happening, 13 nuun athletes are preparing for a race that might be the biggest event of their lives. On February 13th, these 13 athletes (coincidence with the numbers? maybe not!) will toe the start line at the 2016 U.S. Olympic Trials Marathon. Some of these athletes have run in the Olympic Trials before, or maybe they have even represented the USA in past Olympic Games - Kara Goucher is competing for her 3rd trip to represent the United States at the Olympic Games (she represented Team USA in the 5,000m and 10,000m events in 2008 and the marathon in 2012). What do all of these athletes have in common? They are among the fastest runners in the United States and have all qualified to enter the U.S. Olympic Trials Marathon… and they also hydrate with nuun! While only the top 3 finishers for men and women will make the 2016 U.S. Olympic Team, we are proud to work with every single one of these incredible athletes!
