Pictures....say it all! FINAL Hood to Coast!

Thank you to NUUN, who made this journey possible! Great company. great people, and great product!!


Final Destination.....sweet!!! SUB 28 and FIRST of the the two NUUN teams!





T and Me! Fellow teammate and lifelong buddy! Thanks for making me laugh...many times!





Finally eating with the team! We celebrated on the beach and then loved recapping our journey with each other. So nice to be with Nunn Platunn Van 1!









Coah Casey...NUUN Super star and our Van Driver! He is a very cool guy, devoted Dad and of course great Coach! I almost threw up on him on our first stop....so we bonded. Our picture is blurred for our safety. He is a Husky and I am a Coug....this relationship is frowned upon for obvious reasons. I will make an exception, just this once!





My sweat head pic (thanks T...she took most of my pics...of me by myself) with Jess being a seat head behind me. Love her!!!




T and Amanda from RunningHood! Love them both....lots of energy!



OK these pics are backwards. If you look below you see a pic of our team and then a random spider man guy jumps into between me and T. He was seriously squatting down in the sand by our legs. CREEPY! So if you LOOK above you see my expression and T's expression...makes me laugh everytime I look at it!








Snacks, fuel and plenty of NUUN! All provided by NUUN! Thank you!! I used pink lemonade the entire trip...day and night!






XLMIC one of the famous guys from Jox in a Box. One of the teams featured on the movie

OOPS a dupicate!





Susan, Penguin and T....long story.




Hanging with some VAN 1 Tean Nunn gals!!!



Rock Star Jess...rolling it out



Love these girls!! Good times!! Gearing up for final legs for all of us! We ran hard and strong, despite HEAT, INJURY and being slight underdogs....we all pulled out stellar final legs!! Woo Hoo!!




Lot O Potties!



Lots O Drinking!






Head shot...go team!




Team Leaders, NUUN Super Stars...Kim and Coach Casey!




Finished 7th....ummm can you say TOP 10!! I wish I had time to go into more details....I have story after story but I am finally coming to tearms that there is life beyond HTC. Seriously...I think there needs to be a support group! So this will (almost) be my final post!




Pushing myself mentally, physically and spiritually and along the way meeting some amazing people. What could be better?? Words can not express my GRATITUDE for this amazing opportunity!! Thank you NUUN and thank you for all the friends, runners and teammates that encouraged me along the way! It was indeed EPIC!




GO NUUN PLATUUN....Hoorah!!!

I wish we'd been able to spend more time together, too. Being in a van with A was a NIGHTMARE. Oops. Did I just publish that?

Hahahaha! I'm KIDDING, of course. Loved my van!

My word verification word is "imeant." And I meant to say that little joke above. Hahaha! Obviously, I am tired.
