When we announced our Hump Day Giveaway of four tubes of juicy, bursting-with-flavor nuun tablets plus a water bottle, I wrote about Ashleigh, a hard-working fitness instructor and mother of four who was complaining of muscle cramps while pointing and flexing in barre-style classes or after a run. That was a mere two weeks ago, when I told Ashleigh the electrolytes in nuun could probably solve all her charley horse problems--and now she's as addicted to nuun as Dimity and I are! (Dim and I easily go through a tube of 12 tablets while working a weekend-long race expo.)
Now we can either start five new addictions--or quench the active desires of five women who already love the light flavor and less-than-7-calories a nuun tablet delivers when dropped into a bottle of water. Our winners, and the new thing they've added to their summer workouts, are:
Sam: "This summer I have added yoga, CrossFit, Pilates, and P90x to my training. I found a Groupon for 30 different fitness classes so I’m trying all sorts of new stuff. Dave Ramsey budgeting. Gotta make the best of what I’ve got."
Patty V.: "Due to TMI issues with running, I am doing more cross training with bike riding and weight lifting, things I used to do and then fell in love with running and left them behind. I am training a new way this summer with my running – training by heart rate = ever so slow, but hopeful. (MAF Training) I’ve been training for a month and have not had one ‘issue.’ Happy Dance!! I love, love, love using NUUN!!!"
Jamie: "I am training for my first marathon! Really trying to be more diligent about the core and strength work."
Amee: "I’m doing a weight training program 4 times a week in addition to using the “finish it” marathon plan in Train like a Mother."
Renee: "I’ve added Pilates as my strength training while training for the Chicago Marathon (my first marathon!)."
Fun to see some soon-to-be-marathoners in the winning mix! Sam, Patty, Jamie, Amee, and Renee, please email us, at runmother [at] gmail [dot] com, your first and last names and mailing address. Everyone else: Stay well hydrated, and thanks for playing.
