So hot in fact that the BAA offered deferment and urged people to run slowly rather than race as temperatures were forecasted to soar to 88 degrees on race day. Meanwhile, we went through a record 410 gallons of Nuun samples at the expo and helped runners to stay hydrated and keep electrolyte levels optimal. On race day Nuun unofficially had some staff around mile 17 to cheer on runners on a brutal day. As the race went on they encountered and helped many hot, thirsty,...

Bringing Hydration to a Golf Course Near You

The golf team here at Nuun has pledged to keep golfers hydrated this season…which is no easy task might I add. We have become somewhat of a portable hydration station showing up at demo days and events all across the country.   Pat recently spent some time down in Texas to show them how BIG Nuun can do things. On his Tour de Tejas he made stops at the Houston Racquet Club and Tour18Golf Course just to name a couple. Right now he is gearing up for a trip to Cali so be sure to check out his tent at the Haggin Oaks Demo (only the largest demo in the...

Athlete Video: Sean Busby in the Yukon

I have been running now for about 13 years and running is my passion as well as my profession.  I get to wake-up every day and know that I get to challenge myself by doing what I love, I get to be outside with nature, and I get to chase down my...

Patience at The Shell Houston Open

This past week at the Shell Houston Open, Nuun fan, Hunter Mahan, was the first to snag his second title of 2012 (the 1st being the WCG – Accenture Match Play) and his 5th career tour victory.  Over the four days of competition, Hunter finished at a total of 16 under edging out Carl Petterson by 1 shot and 3rd round leader, Louis Oosthuizen, by 2 shots. Hunter is one of those guys that kind of flies under the radar, but when you take a look at his resume it is no surprise that this 29 year old is now the...
