Nuun Love

A while back, I got lucky and won some Nuun from the lovely Marlene. Last weekend, I was very happy to get my super cute little box of Nuun in my mailbox. An eight miler last Wednesday night was the perfect time for a test run. I dropped a tablet into my water bottle and let the fizzy wonder begin. By the time I set out for my run, I had a tasty bottle of Nuun waiting for me.

The first taste of Nuun surprised me. It tastes almost carbonated (maybe it is carbonated? who knows?), and is very light. I liked it a lot. Regular Gatorade tends to get overly sweet and heavy for my tastes. So the verdict on the Nuun? Loved it. Now I'm hoarding the rest of my supply until marathon training starts again. And adding a handheld water bottle to my Christmas list!

Other things I'm loving tonight:
  • putting on a pair of jeans I haven't worn since before I got preggers with Sophie and finding that they fit just right
  • Twins WIN!!!

Not so much loving all the rain we are getting though. Blech. Kinda ruining my annual steamy love affair with fall running. Oh, and someone told me it's supposed to snow on Saturday. Spare me.

Gotta love the Nuun. Just make sure you let the initial build up of gasses release or you can certainly be in for a surprise! Go Twins!! Now beat them Yanks!

Glad you liked the Nuun! It's not carbonated, but I know what you mean about that fizzy taste.

Congrats on fitting into pre-baby jeans!!

I love the Nuun too. At first I thought it was strange but now I love it.

Yay for skinny jeans. All the running pays off no?

NO SNOW!! I wouldn't be able to handle that just yet. Still have races I'm trying to sneak in in Oct. :)

Thanks for the Nuun review. Might have to give it a try.

And way to go on the pre-preggo jeans. That's success for sure.
