Nuun Hood to Coast Relay

If someone were to combine all of my absolute favorite activities into one event, I’m preeety sure the Hood to Coast Relay would be it. A 199 mile relay race? Trecking from Mt Hood (<3 mountains) to the beautiful Pacific coast? (OMG). Running night legs, and  “roughin’ it” in a sweaty van and sleeping bags with other amazing people the rest of the way? Yes. Please. So when I found out Nuun was opening up the opportunity for more relay teams for this year’s event, I knew I had to apply.

But first, do you know what Nuun is? You should! Think of it like better-for-you Gatorade; they’re electrolyte tablets that easily dissolve into water, have NO sugar, less than 8 cals, and are a great way to hydrate before and recover after a workout. It’s pretty much genius, and I use em quite often. (Even when not working out…)


I’m not video saavy, so decided to create a pimped out powerpoint for my application. In it, I wrote a poem (another one of my “hobbies”) that sort of tells an abridged story of my life, and how running helped take me to where I am today. It’s kind of personal/sentimental, so hooppppe you enjoy!

My mind is just buzzing thinking about the opportunity…so fingers crossed until the teams are announced. Good luck to all who are applying!
