Nuun Giveaway!

If you've read a running blog well, ever, then you've probably heard of nuun. Some people love it (me) and some people don't. Some people can't run without it if the temperature goes over 60 degrees (again, moi) and some people claim it gives them the runs. Isn't the world of running fuel fun?!

If you are one of the few people who hasn't heard of nuun, crawl out from under that rock and join the rest of us. It's nice out here, I promise.



Anyway, nuun was kind enough to send me a box of goodies after making the Hood to Coast Relay Team After-nuun Delight. It turns out that they have more than the one single flavor I've been drinking for the last 18 months. I have GOT to get out more. I always drink this flavor - lemon lime:



But my new favorite has got to be strawberry lemonade. I will admit I only opened it because the tube was pink and I am influenced by stupid stuff like that, but in actuality it's also pretty tasty.



Since I take half a tablet for tough workouts...this supply should last me roughly 12 years. I don't know the expiration dates, so I figured I would share the wealth. Two winners will each get two tubes of nuun and a new snazzy water bottle. You'll never guess what the bottle says on it. No, guess. Guess. Damn - you're right. It says nuun. So, to recap - win this:





In order to win, you have to take a picture with a zebra, recite the alphabet backwards and send me a picture of you in a movie theater. What, too much?

Fine. All you have to do is leave a comment.

If you want to like me on Facebook or like nuun on Facebook, you go on ahead and do that. It won't help you win at all, but it would be super swell and I like friends.

Legalese: Giveaway open to anyone, in any country that I can think of. (I hope no one from Somalia wins because shipping is going to be killer.) Two winners will be selected at random on Wednesday, May 30th at midnight and announced on Thursday. Any/all comments are eligible to win. I was sent these nuun products free of charge but all thoughts and comments are my own. Especially the parts about the Somalians - please don't hold nuun accountable for that.

  17. I love Nuun! I started using it a lot this year while training for my ultramarathon. It was nice to be able to replenish electrolytes without calories and sugar since I was eating a ton of solid food at the same time.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Let's see, do you say "noon" or "nun" ??? hee hee

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  23. We love Nuun at our house. My kids are always finding my stash. They too like the strawberry lemonade, though the citrus is my favorite. Once I was buying Nuun at REI and they had a bunch of banana Nuun on clearance. That made me go hmmmmm. Anyone tried the banana flavor?

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm happy to try anything for free, even if I roll my eyes each time this product infiltrates my blog reading...rollin rollin rollin ;)

    ReplyDelete
  28. I've been drinking the lemon lime flavor only, I guess now I'm willing to try the strawberry lemonade.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I heart nuun, my favorite flavor is citrus fruits although strawberry lemonade is a close 2nd!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'm not in Somalia, but close(ish). When I'm not having a baby in my hometown in the states, I live in Guinea, on the west coast of Africa. But if I win I think I'd gift it to my marathon training friend in Egypt. Luckily you wouldn't have to worry about exorbitant shipping costs because we both have US mailing addresses. You're welcome. :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. NUUUUN! I like it. Despite the blog saturation of it. It makes me happy. I'd like to win some. And I live in Canada - not Somalia. So shipping could be worse.

    ReplyDelete
  53. *crawling out from under a rock* sooo I'm guessing the tablet goes in the water bottle and you drink the stuff? Apparently I don't read enough running blogs :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. I love Nuun and drink it almost every day in the summer!!! I wanna win some :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. I've never tried Nuun but it looks great! I always just use those packets that look like Emergen-C for electrolytes. Nuun probably tastes better...

    ReplyDelete

  77. I have to say I am a little disappointed that all I have to do is leave a comment. I was looking forward to having my photo with taken with a Zebra and we were having the shoot done in a movie theater, never mind.

    I am one of those people coming out from under a rock, I ashamedly hadn't heard of Nuun till now, but I do know what an electrolyte is! Am I forgiven?

    P.S. I liked you (a lot) on facebook :)

    ReplyDelete
  78. LOVE Nuun and would love to win some more. Sometimes I put 2 whole tablets in if it's hot or really intense. Especially biking. It sure helps keeps the cramping away. I wish I could get away with 1/2 tablet. I usually buy 10 tubes at a time so I really hope I win!

    ReplyDelete
  79. I'm interested to try this stuff, and probably will even if (when) I don't win!

  86. Nuun is going to be a necessity for these freaking brutal summer runs!

    ReplyDelete
