Our first #nuunchat was such a success that we can’t help but host another, this time with founder of the Core Diet, Ironman Triathlete, elite level triathlon coach, and valued Nuun partner Jesse Kropelnicki.
How many of you have your nutrition down pat for this summer’s racing?
Nuun may have the hydration part nailed, but making sure you’re fueled for success is a whole other story. The Core Diet was designed to help athletes live, train, and compete at their optimal level. Through proper nutrition that includes nutrient rich foods consumed at the right time, the Core Diet will have you performing and living at your very best.
Jesse and the Core Diet are partnering with us for this chat to guide participants toward a well-fueled season, so tune in to receive personalized advice from the Core Diet and hear from other Nuun fans.
1 lucky #nuunchat participant (chosen at random) will win $100 toward a personal plan from the Core Diet, as well as a Nuun 4-pack and water bottle.
3 more #nuunchat participants (chosen at random) will win $50 toward a personal plan from the Core Diet, as well as a Nuun 4-pack and water bottle.

Our recommendation is that during the chat you have multiple windows open.

Andrew Fast is an endurance athlete and a great Nuun ambassador.
He loves tri-berry and lemon lime Nuun.
Traveling with an objective, like riding the length of Patagonia or putting up a speed record on a sub-range of mountains, is something that shapes him and that will be part of his life until the world ends.
He grew up reading The Surfer’s Journal and later The Alpinist, wanting to be the person in those stories. Now, he and his friends are the people who write for the magazine and is grateful to have gotten there. At 26, he’s realizing how much the endurance community has enriched his life, he’s focusing on giving back and strengthening relationships with the industry.
Andrew Fast was recently featured on La Sportiva in On Running. If you love running you should be sure to check it out!
Samantha over at Running and Cupcakes just posted a great review about the importance of hydration and Nuun’s role. In fact, it was so awesome that us here at the Nuun office may have learned a tip or two! Such as, keep Nuun everywhere, as in your purse, workout bag, at your desk, and in your kitchen, and never be without a bottle to fill.
Samantha begins by telling a story about her dehydrated days. Can you guess how the story ends?
Once upon a time there was a Little Cupcake (we’ll call her LC for short) who drank nothing but soda. And not diet soda, but full blown, straight up, high fructose corn syrup loaded Coke (or Sprite if
I she was going caffeine free). LC had chronic problems with urinary tract infections, headaches, and not feeling well in general, but she couldn’t figure out why.

Last year the ladies on the Nuun Hood to Coast team – along with the Nuun staffers – shared lots of laughs, many miles, even more tweets, and formed some lifelong friendships in the process. The experience was one of a lifetime for everyone, and this year we’ve added on a third team to triple the fun.
Reviewing all of the amazing candidates was an honor. It was no easy task to select our team because every applicant was so deserving. However, after hours of viewing and thoughtful consideration, here are the ladies who will be joining us in 2012. The list of 30 team members and 6 alternates are in no specific order. Be sure to check out their blogs, congratulate them and wish them happy miles!
We are truly so excited to introduce this year’s Nuun-fanatic, all female blogger team for Hood to Coast 2012. All 6 vans will be part of Team AfterNuun Delight. Welcome to the Nuun family, ladies!
