​5 Reasons We’re Opting Outside This Black Friday

At Nuun, we believe that moving more + proper hydration are catalysts to help you thrive through life. Although this may sound obvious, our actions in society are counter to these fundamentals and as a result, making us unhealthier.

Think about the headwinds we face everyday when it comes to movement alone. We live in a box (our home). We likely drive in a box (automobile) to work and sit in a box (office), only to stare at a box (computer and cell). Then we repeat the drive home back to our box and sit and stare at a box (TV/computer). Most people live a sedentary lifestyle, indoors, for 20+ hours every single day.

This Black Friday, Nuun is encouraging our team to counter society’s sedentary lifestyle and pause on our shopping indulgence by opting outside. Our friends at REI started this movement a couple of years ago by closing their doors on one of the biggest shopping days of the year. The intent was to give up on shopping for the day and just get outside. Think of it as healing for our body and our planet. Let’s be real, we all know that it is pretty difficult to get outside without moving.

Here are 5 reasons to opt outside this Thanksgiving weekend:

Running on Veggies Recovery Smoothie

Guest blog by ​Running on Veggies

​Recovery starts from the second you walk in the door after your run or workout. Smoothies are a great way to boost your recovery because they get nutrients into your body quickly and even on-the-go. Often we find ourselves running directly from a workout to work, meetings, and carpools. And this means recovery becomes an afterthought, if at all. I am all about making things easy and simple so that this doesn't have to happen. No need to over complicate nutrition. It can be as simple as this smoothie!

It's no secret - I'm a big Nuun fan! I spend a lot of time at high altitudes and getting in extra hydration is a constant effort. I find that if I'm not hydrated enough my muscles cramp and I feel lethargic and tired. Adding Nuun to water or a smoothie like I did here is a great way to get extra hydration in. And lest you think that with winter on the horizon you won't need extra hydration, trust me - you are losing more water than you think, even if you are hardly sweating. Nuun recently came out with a new product with vitamins. If you are anything like me and are always forgetting to take your supplements, this is a great way to get all the essentials in. The new vitamin tablets include vitamin E, C, A, calcium, magnesium and much more.

12 Reasons To Try Cross This Winter

Guest Blog by Chris Huller from ​Cycleboredom

Here in the States and northern hemisphere, we're at the halfway point in our cyclocross season. But that doesn't mean you can't jump in and join the fun. There are plenty of races to go throughout the months of November and December. Here are some reasons why you should register for your first cyclocross/cross/cx race right now!

1. It's ridiculously fun, despite what our faces are saying.

I've never had so much fun putting myself through some of the most intense, self-inflicted pain I've experienced. Yes, it's an incredibly strenuous physical activity, but one that's especially rewarding the moment you cross the line.
