The hoopla surrounding this even was HUGE, but when you strip it down to fundamentals, was it really that big a deal? People run relays all the time. The story of 12 strangers, pulled together, living in a van and running their hearts out isn’t that unusual. Among a sea of thousands of runners, our faces were just a few.
But to us, it WAS monumental.
This blogging community has been a blessing in my life. It has offered me support, accountability, inspiration and most importantly friendship. Hood to Coast, and nuun brought together a group of ladies who had similar hobbies and passions and made real life friends out of them. The bond we now share is something special, something that could only be forged over 200 miles of sweaty, stinky fun.
Nuun Platuun finished those 200 miles in:
We placed 7th in the Womens Open division.
Less than 28 hours after we started that adventure, we celebrated on the beach with shots of NUUN, of course.
We met Hood to Coast race founder Bob Foote
spread the Nuun love (almost positive I’m pointing to his nuun tatt, NOT fondling his muscles)
Celebrated some more….(cover your eyes mom, I’m drinking beer)
Added an honorary team member, Amanda from RunningHood with Nuun Platuun.
After much errr…celebrating, and still un-showered, we left the beach for some food. Post dinner with Jess from Blonde Ponytail.
Thanks again to nuun for providing this amazing opportunity. Hood to Coast was the experience of a life time….lets repeat it next year, ok?
