Meet Nuun’s 2012 Hood To Coast Team

  Last year the ladies on the Nuun Hood to Coast team - along with the Nuun staffers - shared lots of laughs, many miles, even more tweets, and formed some lifelong friendships in the process. The experience was one of a lifetime for everyone, and this year we've added on a third team to triple the fun. Reviewing all of the amazing candidates was an honor. It was no easy task to select our team because every applicant was so deserving. However, after hours of viewing and thoughtful consideration, here are the ladies who will be joining us in 2012. The list of 30 team members and 6 alternates are in no specific order. Be sure to check out their blogs, congratulate them and wish them happy miles! We are truly so excited to introduce this year’s Nuun-fanatic, all female blogger team for Hood to Coast 2012. All 6 vans will be part of Team AfterNuun Delight. Welcome to the Nuun family, ladies!
