We're continuing our tour of our favorite cities by heading east to Boston. Jay here, Nuun's local sales guru, to share my favorite spots to run, bike, swim, and work up an appetite. Boston is known for it’s history, it’s hospitals and universities, it’s great seafood, and oh yeah.. it’s wicked passionate sports fans. (No trip to Boston is complete without visiting Fenway - GO SOX!) It’s also home to one of the oldest annual and best-known road races in the world, The Boston Marathon.
The city itself has a huge active community, and attracts athletes all over the world to come and visit the city. Whether you're in town for the marathon or just here to check out what Boston has to offer, these are a few of the many, many spots that you can get that workout in while you’re here.
A few months back, you took the plunge and registered for your first marathon. You've been training hard all summer, and now race day is fast approaching. You're excited, but nerves are starting to set in. Take a deep breath and trust your training. You're ready for this.
Follow these do's and don'ts, and you're sure to have a memorable first 26.2!
Recently, there’s been a lot of new theories and studies that may help us get to the root cause of muscle cramping. One thing I know for sure is that every athlete (regardless of the level you train and compete at) has, in one way or another, experienced muscle cramping. It is one of those side effects of exercise, of pushing your body to the limit, that I still believe we haven’t solved or found a way to eliminate the onset of muscle cramps during exercise.
There are certain nutritional strategies you can implement to help your body prepare for battle. But before we get into those, we should start with the basics: what are muscle cramps, how do they occur, and why?
the temps are starting to fall and the leaves are starting to change. that must mean fall marathon season is finally here! there are a lot of great courses out there, but these are our favorites.Read More

Up next on our virtual tour showcasing some of the best training spots and hidden gems in cities around the country we are headed to Chicago!
For those of you who haven’t traveled to the greatest city in the Midwest (and perhaps the entire country), you are in for quite a treat. Chicago is known affectionately as a “drinking city with an eating problem” but also has one of the most vibrant active communities in the entire country. Harsh winters and short springs make summer and fall all the more enjoyable in the metropolitan area known to us locals as “Chicagoland”. Here are some of our favorite spots around the city and suburbs that you’ll want to check out on your next visit!
Not all salt is created equal.
On the last blog, we talked about electrolyte balance, and how it’s important to consume a balanced blend during exercise to ensure you get the most out of your hydration. Sodium, is the most crucial of these electrolyte to consume to help retain and utilize the fluid you are consuming. Similar to carbohydrates, lipids, and almost anything in life, all sodium are not equal. In fact, there are specific kinds of sodium you should look for during exercise, and some you should try and avoid as well.
The two types of sodium we’ll focus on for this blog are: salt (sodium chloride), and sodium citrate.
Continuing our virtual road trip, we head north to Colorado, where it can be 80 degrees by 11am, rain at 2pm and snow overnight. The Front Range doesn’t really have season, we just have gear for every adventure possible, no matter the weather.

Corey and Nick, two members of our CO-based nuun crew, and #teamnuun athlete Cody are here to show you how to live the #nuunlife in Denver.Read More
