thank you, nuun
Just like the rest of us, I’m in this post-relay haze thanks to an emotional and physical stimulus I’ve never quite experienced before. (And a red eye that kept me in the Dallas airport for way too long, but that’s neither here nor there.) There are a ton of things I’ve learned, stories to share, and special moments to highlight, but first off (and most importantly!) I want to thank everyone at Nuun for making this an absolutely incredible experience. From the moment we stepped off the plane, everyone at Nuun went out of their way to make us runners feel welcomed and at home.
From the Mariner’s game (I watched between beers, I swear), way too many Starbucks and bathroom breaks, an infinite amount of trial mix (but not M&M’s, got all those), driving (and dealing!) with all us girls, to supporting and encouraging us — making us all feel like a part of the family — I think I can speak for everyone that Nuun went above and beyond to make Hood to Coast truly something special.
So before you hear all about the 2 am runs, road-killing dudes in sparkle skirts, and where cashews actually come from, (in addition to 80 billion other things that happened when you run 200 miles from Mt. Hood to Seaside, Oregon), here’s a tremendous THANK YOU to everyone at NUUN! (and please adopt me when I move out to the PNW, thanks)
