Last week, I received some pretty cool news—I was selected as a 2015 “Nuunbassador.” I’m joining a community of inspiring athletes from across the country who are just as passionate about running and active sports as I am.
However, telling friends and family that I’ll be spreading #nuunlove in 2015 understandably has raised a few questions, so I thought that I’d address them here.
Nuun is an electrolyte replacement sports drink tablet that flavors water without any sugar and very few calories. The tablets come in a variety of flavors and contain important minerals, such as sodium, potassium, and magnesium—all of which you can lose during hard workouts. Staying hydrated is essential for peak performance, and Nuun provides an easy way to rehydrate during long runs or stay hydrated throughout the day.
How do you pronounce Nuun?
It’s easy—it rhymes with moon, swoon, spoon, tune, prune, dune—I think you get the idea.
Why did you want to be a Nuunbassador?
I love the product and use it regularly in training and during races. The portable tablets make it easy to carry and use as needed to rehydrated. I have a full 2015 race calendar planned and want to be more educated about proper hydration and electrolyte balance—it’s never fun to bonk during a race, and serving as a Nuunbassador will help increase my knowledge in this area. Finally, it’s a great opportunity to connect with a community of endurance and active athletes.
How did you become a Nuunbassador
In November, Nuun opened up its 2015 application program and I applied online—responding to several questions about myself, my interests and background in running, and why I was interested in serving as a Nuunbassador. Look for my profile on the Nuun website soon!
What does a Nuunbassador do?
As a Nuunbassador, I’m joining a community of athletes—and together we will interact online to support each other in our running and athletic endeavors, as well as represent Nuun both online and offline. Nuun has a great social media presence and ambassadors are encouraged to join the conversation. During races and training runs, I’ll proudly wear a Nuun hat or shirt to show my support for the company and the product—and you may even see me helping out Nuun at an event or a race.
What is your favorite Nuun flavor?
I’ve used Nuun for years, but about a year or so ago, I tried Strawberry Lemonade and was hooked—however, I can’t wait to try more flavors, particularly Tangerine Ginger.
I’m looking forward to staying hydrated with the Nuun team and all of the other Nuunbassadors in 2015. Have a question about Nuun or are you a Nuunbassador? Let’s connect.
