My Running Favorites – Nuun Giveaway!

Missed me?  Well I’m back!  I’ve been away running some races, and visiting many grand national parks in the west.  I have a gratuitous amounts of photos to share but first I’ll treat you with a giveaway from one of my all time favorite products!

I’ve been fortunate enough that for the most part I don’t have too many issues with long runs with the exception of one thing.  Hydration!  I’m not really a fan of drinking plain water unless it’s bubbly (not a great combo for running).  Flavored sports drinks like Gatorade make me sick.  I’ve only felt really awful during one race and it was a race I decided to drink Gatorade.  So needless to say when I tested out some Nuun during last year’s 2012 Boston marathon, I was a bit skeptical.

A year later, Nuun has yet to fail me and I probably wouldn’t survive summer running in Boston without it.  Even national park hikers agreed as I was able to quickly find some in the Grand Canyon Market!

Nuun Giveaway

You add a tablet to water, wait two minutes and instead electrolyte hydration ready for you!  The taste is mild, but there’s lot of flavors to pick from.

And now lucky for you, I have either one 4 – pack of any flavor or 1 of each new flavor to giveaway!

Oh, you want to know how to win? Of course you do. It’s easy. You have until Saturday night, May 4th at midnight (EST) to enter, and I will announce a winner Sunday or Monday. U.S. residents only (sorry). Please leave a SEPARATE comment for each entry.

Commitment Day Race Registration Giveaway

I know I’ve been talking more about traveling than running lately, but I promise running is still on my mind and I have been keeping up with my miles as I know the months coming up to my 50 miler will be here in a flash.  In the mean time I have a giveaway with not one but TWO free race registrations to make up for all the travel photos I’ve been making you put up with (and no I’m not done, I have a ton more.)

On January 1 2013, thousands upon thousands of people across the nation will run simultaneous 5Ks as a symbol of their commitment to a healthy way of life. Will you be one of them?

I know that if you read my blog you’re most likely already a runner and you eat 5Ks before your healthy oatmeal flex-seed breakfast; however, we all have friends, and family that we wish to motivate.  Commitment Day is a “day for action, not apathy,” so inspire those around you by example and get your loved ones involved.

The Commitment Day 5k is a 3.1 mile run/walk/stroll taken place on January 1st, 2013 in over 30 cities for all ages! Kids under 18 are free and is a great way to welcome in the new year with your family.  Registration is $39 and entry includes a Commitment Day T-shirt and a 2013 hardcover journal to keep track and progress of your best year yet ;).
