^That^ says it right there. You want Nuun. Really you do.
Nuun in superfantastic. It really has made a difference in my running.
Now wait! Don't go skipping away if you aren't a runner! This is for you too!
Yep, Nuun has something for everyone and today is your chance to win it. Read on.
First, what the heck is it?
Everyone has tried those sticky sweet sports drinks. Blech. This is *not* that. When I first jumped into triathlon and running I used those. Inevidibly I ended up with a not so happy stomach. But I needed more than just water because I sweat. A lot. Like my face crusts with salt and my dogs insist on licking my legs after a run. Yes, I know I'm gross.
It was about then that I was first introduced to Nuun. A little tablet to mix with 16oz of water, packed with electrolytes, not loaded with sugar (no sugar at all!), lots of flavors to choose from...what did I have to lose?
It did not disappoint. Not only did it taste better than the alternatives, I felt better using it. No more stick stomach! Better hydration meant better recovery, better recovery meant better running!
Thus began my love of Nuun.
And the creation of the Nuun drawer.
See? I'm not kidding when I tell you I love it.
Though that's probably obvious considering that I applied to as a part of the Nuun team of bloggers running Hood to Coast in August. 44 days! If you're counting. (missed that video? check it out HERE)
I'm super pumped to now officially be a Nuun ambassador too!
But like I said, this is not just for athletes, or those of us aspiring athletes who sweat like a pig.
Nuun really does have something for everyone.
All you dehydrated people out there, listen up!
Don't think you're one of those? Did you know that 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated? As someone who has always been a big water drinker that seemed ridiculous to me until some friends and I were doing a fitness challenge. Some of them were struggling with getting 32 oz of water a day! And I was blown away at the number who said they hated drinking water or they were bored with water or they just didn't like the taste.
Daytime fatique anyone? Dehydration is the number one cause. Let's fix that.
Nuun Active Hydration is perfect for us sweaty folks. Packed with electrolytes, it helps alleviate cramps, helps muscle fatigue, puts back all those things you're sweating out. It makes the perfect sports drink. And it comes in 14 flavors! Banana, Orange, Lemon Lime, Strawberry Lemonade, Fruit Punch, Kona Cola, Lemon Tea, Tri-Berry, Grape, Tropical, Citrus Fruit, Cherry Limeade, Watermelon and Lemonade.
My current favorites:
(yes, I really do keep these stashed in my purse.)
For those of you who aren't as disgusting as me, check out U Natural Hydration.
Optimal for those less intense activities. All natural, sweetened with stevia, only 7 calories per tab. 4 awesome flavors of U Natural Hydration; Cucumber Mint, Goji Berry Green Tea, Tangerine Ginger and Lemon Chai.
Wrapping up the line up is Nuun All Day.
Now it's your turn to snag some for yourself.
Up for grabs is a four-pack of your choice! And while you're waiting to find out if you won, snag some at 15% off using the discount code hydrateHTC!
