Many of you may have seen the running/blogging social media world full of excitement with news about Nuun’s Hood-to-Coast Relay Announcement yesterday at Noon PST. It has been much anticipated (and nerve-wracking) over the last two weeks by those that applied. It’s kind of strange because I can’t remember the last time I wanted something this badly and I was counting the days, then minutes and finally seconds as I hit the refresh button obsessively yesterday.

AND…I am so happy and proud that I am one of the ladies that they selected to be a part of the team!

I mentioned a few times how I was trying to manage my expectations and not get my hopes up too much, so when I saw my name on that list, I honestly have to admit, I was a little surprised. I was at my desk at work and did a little jig under the desk before I started texting and calling Brad, my parents, my MIL and my best friend frantically. And not a single one of them answered their phones or texted back right away! FINALLY, my coworker who sits next to me got off of her conference call so I could share the news and get a response! Then eventually I heard from everyone and they were all just as excited as I was.

I cannot express my thanks enough to Nuun for giving me this opportunity. There were so many talented, creative and amazing women who applied and I feel honored to be among the 30 that were chosen. So many of the women on the team are those whose blogs I have read for over a year and I can’t believe in August I will get to meet them all in person!

Social media is funny because it is done as you sit facing a screen…with very little “real” interaction. Although I was fortunate to have met some awesome ladies in Houston (Hi LauraHolly, Amanda, Terzah, Kellie), I haven’t had much “real life” interaction with the social media world. This all makes it very real and I fully expect that all of these women will be even more awesome in person than they seem on their blogs!

And as I said in my video, I am absolutely a real user of Nuun and a true believer in the product. I really have converted a number of my running/biking friends to Nuun already and now that I have the opportunity to share my love for the product further, I will be convincing anyone and everyone who will listen!

One final, time I want to express my appreciation to Nuun for selecting me and of course to everyone who tweeted and Facebooked them or left comments here supporting my application. THANK YOU!
