Nuun's Hood to Coast Relay Team



The Twitter world exploded today with news of the relay team Nuun is putting together for the Hood to Coast relay race later this year. This race is an awesome event -- made even bigger by the recent documentary that was released about it -- and the chance to run under Nuun's name is appealing for so many reasons.

Nuun has given their female blogging Ambassadors and the general public plenty of time to piece together a "creative application" for a shot on the team, but it seems that everyone has waited until today to announce they turned something in.

Granted, maybe they were busy trying to figure out what "creative application" meant, or maybe they needed time to craft something ever-so-perfect and utilized every available second. (Don't be dissuaded; if you are a female and you have a blog, you can still turn something in until tomorrow!)

I am now going to join the masses and say I turned in an application today. With the help of some very crafty and creative people in my life, I turned in an electronic picture book.

This is not just any picture book -- it's a simple story of how running changed my life and how Nuun changed my running. It's a story of how partnering with Nuun and training in San Francisco has allowed me to be prepared for the biggest relay race in the world.

I'll spare you the full monty, but here are a few of the images.

So, if you're in on that Twitter thing, go ahead and leave @ministryofnuun some love ... and then tell them that I (@DiaryAvgRunner) am ready to join their team! No, I'm not too proud to beg.

Good luck to everyone who applied -- I know of quite a few awesome bloggers who turned something in, and it'll be a kick-ass and uber-fun team no matter who is selected!

  9. I love the nod to the great running institution that is port-o-potties!

    I'm afraid I'm a bit too backward-facing to be on Twitter, but I will cross my fingers for you, will that do? ;-)
