As I’ve said before, I’ve got a little thing called a Nuun problem.
I can’t complain about the weather in SoCal that often, but since it’s typically on the warm side, I get a little extra sweaty.
A little extra sweat, requires a little more hydration….
Hence I drink a lot of electrolytes.
My propensity to leave little plastic tubes of electrolyte tabs in every square corner of the house, the incessant need to check the color of my pee, my proclivity to enhance my beer with electrolytes led me to the fine people at Nuun who welcomed me into their ambassador program.
I’m incredibly excited since it is a product I’ve used and stood behind for a long time. My kids are excited because they think watermelon Nuun is better than Gatorade.
So casa de Striding Mom will be peeing a faint yellow and be sporting (soccer, running, baseball) in well-hydrated ways. Super exciting stuff.
Speaking of exciting…Boston is 2 weeks away. Actually let’s talk a little less exciting and a little more…I don’t know – panic, fear, horror, mentally induced muscle fatigue. Those are my knee jerk reactions. I’ll talk more about my goals in the near future. Let’s just say I’m going with the aim low because it’s a shorter fall approach.
What’s your favorite hydration product?
