In previous years Nuun has selected a couple of teams of female bloggers to run Hood to Coast with them. This year they changed it up a bit, and opened up the applications to only their ambassadors (in case you missed it, I was selected as an ambassador earlier this year - see the little Nuun logo over there ------------------------------------>, that's what that is about). I applied because I really wanted to be a part of the awesome crew I knew they would be putting together for this race.
From my instagram on Monday
And, on Monday, I got the news - I'm in! I was at work and had to hold back my excitement a tiny bit, as I still had work to get done. But, to say I was happy to have been selected would be an understatement. I feel so lucky to go on this adventure with Nuun and the 19 other amazing ambassadors they chose to run this year.
New Nuun Energy. You gotta try it. I'm sure we'll all
be #electrolit throughout the relay!
Anyway, I am over the moon excited to be a part of this awesome crew. I've already chatted with a few on twitter and I can't wait to get to know the rest of the group over the coming months. This is going to be an awesome adventure and I can't wait to share it with you! Yay!!
I have no idea what runner number I'm going to be yet, all in due time. And, I'm pretty sure my training through Vineman 70.3 will be solid prep. The weeks between Vineman and HTC will be totally focused on HTC. In the meantime my runs will be Vineman focused (but I know they'll work well for HTC training too, hill runs are starting soon!), working on distance and pace (I plan to share how the training works for both races).
155 days!!! Woot!
