I Am A Nuun Convert & Nuun Giveaway

Once upon a time, I tried Nuun.  I put a tablet into water, shook, and took a drink.  And....I did not like it.  It tasted funny almost liked flavored alka seltzer.  So I put the stuff away.

Then, I went to D.C.  It was humid.  We ran.  I loved my time with this amazing lady but the run was not the best.  I was crazy dehydrated.  I had to do something.   I tried again.  This time I took the tablet and split it in half and took a sip.  It was not bad.  It was not the most amazing drink ever but I began to like it.  And then I drank some more and a funny thing happened, I was no longer dehydrated.  I felt good.  My muscles recovered.   It was as if this magical tablet helped.  So I started to drink more of this so called Nuun during the week and began to like it more and more.   Half a tablet or two throughout the day but especially right after a workout and especially the day before a long run.   And I REALLY began to notice the difference.  So I bought more flavors - Tri-Berry, Tropical, Strawberry Lemonade YUM!!

So let's get more scientific.  Tell me what is really going on with this stuff.  Nuun is an electrolyte tablet that you put into your water and quickly dissolves into your water bottle.  It has zero sugar and under 8 calories.  It is easy to carry and use and it comes in a cool looking tube.   So the amazing Nuun website tells us that Nuun prevents dehydration.  But how?

Nuun's special formulation of electrolytes helps increase the amount of water that's absorbed into the blood stream.  That means more of the water you drink is actually used to hydrate you instead of being eliminated because the electroyte balance wasn't right.  Nuun is not energy.  We design Nuun just for hydration.  It's what we do best!

We all know about Nuun, it is pretty amazing stuff, right?  But like I said, at first I did not think it was for me.  I even told Liz on that very run in D.C. that it was not for me.  But I can be wrong, and boy was I wrong! Nuun is the perfect way to stay hydrated.  While it can't give you the added calories you need while you run, it is perfect for hydration and in my opinion a great way to stay hydrated before, during, and after a run.

We all also know how amazing Nuun is as a company.  And once again they did not fail.  They sent me some Nuun to try out and giveaway.  I got to try out Strawberry Lemonade, Tropical, Lemon tea, Grape, & Fruit Punch as well as water bottles!  My opinion I love Strawberry Lemonade, Tropical, & Grape.  Lemon Tea & Fruit Punch are not my cup of tea.   But, ultimately a big thumbs for Nuun once again.

Ok so now what? It is your turn to get to try out these flavors and get your own water bottle.  And not just one of you but three of you will win FIVE new tubes of Nuun plus a Nuun water bottle.
