Dustin Johnson wins his 6th PGA Tour event at the FedEx St. Jude Classic this past week in Memphis, Tennessee. This was only Dustin’s 2nd start since a back injury in early March. We here at Nuun are not surprised at all that Dustin made such a quick come back. He is a super fit guy, a great all-around athlete, and has an unbelievable work ethic. Fitness is a huge part of Dustin’s life and success on the golf course. His workout routines focus a lot on speed and balance working a lot with medicine and physio balls. He also chooses to stay hydrated with Nuun on the course and in the gym. Dustin knows that in order to achieve optimal results the body must be properly hydrated. Did you know that just 1% dehydration level could sacrifice performance and balance?….Dustin does.
In 2011 we captured 16 titles! D.J’s win this past weeks makes the 8th win in the 2012 season. With over 15 events left this season, we hope to add a few more to that list.
We would also like to give BIG props to our guy, Davis Love III, who had a T3 finish with all four rounds under par. This was the 2012 Ryder Cup captain’s best showing this season.He is really finding his groove and just in time for the U.S. Open next week to be held at the Olympic Club in San Francisco, California.
Speaking of the U.S Open, is anybody going out to San Fran next week? Be sure to stay hydrated while spectating by taking your Nuun with you! As fans we have a big responsibility to cheer our favorite player on to victory.
Ohio Ultra Trail RUNners or “OUTRUN” is a group of Northeastern Ohio trail runners who train for, compete in, and host Ultramarathons and other running events. The mission of the 200+ member group is to promote the passion for ultra running and provide a symbiotic relationship among the experienced, beginner, and aspiring ultra runners in the North East Ohio area and beyond.
As you can imagine, hydration is ultra important during ultra runs, and here at Nuun we’re happy to support every leg of their team.
In our most recent and inaugural event, the O24 which is a 24 hour trail run, a fun mascot appeared on the trails….a mannequin leg. The leg started to hide in various places like trees, dirt, near the campfire, and ultimately got picked up. She was given a timing chip and was carried by nearly every runner on the course for a total of 30 miles.
Since O24, she has traveled to various ultramarathons, 5k’s, and recently got discovered at the Cleveland Marathon where she helped raise the spirits of runners with the help of fellow Outrunner, Kirsten Pentek who gave the leg to the founder of Outrun & Nuun Ambassador, Zachary Johnson who carried her through the finish line cheered on by the crowds. Cleveland was extremely hot and she understands the importance of proper hydration, without a doubt, the leg is a Nuun supporter. You can find her at the Kettle Moraine 100 mile run and will also be at Mohican 100, Burning River 100, Oil Creek 100, and many others.
Hope that leg gets some rest before those 100 milers!
