2012 Hood to Coast - I had just started working at Nuun and was invited to come out and run w/ a team. I remember being really nervous but after running my first leg I was on such a high and all my nerves went away. It was a truly life changing experience to be around so many positive and inspirational individuals. During this relay you experience so many emotions that only a situation like this can bring out of you.

The People. I love learning about other people and figuring out why they are who they are and what drives them. I can always learn more about myself through that. Nuun attracts people that want to better themselves in a healthy way.

A beer at the finish line. Best tasting beer of the year!
