I have not written much about my experience at Hood To Coast, other than to say it was AMAZING. Why?
|STILL feel like it was all a dream|
I have a mental block. My mind does not want to admit it is over. That the race I was looking forward to for months came and went.
I am not sure why my mind works this way, but it does. My 16th marathon, Potomac River Run, was amazing as well – yet I did not write anything about it. When I had a NOT so great run like at Freedom’s Run Marathon, I had NO problem blogging away for days.
Why is it easier to talk about the negative but harder to find the right words for the positive?

Does this happen to you?
Then I wonder, does anyone even want the mile by mile account of what happened? Multiple other bloggers have said it better than I even feel I can. [Sweat Once A Day, Health On The Run, Enthusiastic Runner]
What I do know is that spending so much time in VERY close quarters with people makes you MISS them like WHOA.

I pretty much feel like I hit the lottery when it came to my vanMates. I mean honestly in what kind of dream did it happen that the president of nuun was our van driver?
|Pretty sure I was about to start crying – thanking Mason & nuun for giving me this opportunity|
One would think that people at the top are snotty, think highly of themselves and are unapproachable – okay maybe that’s just me. I’ve worked for companies before where the president did not even really know my name. Mason is different, nuun is different. This man had me laughing so hard on multiple occasions, that I literally almost peed my pants. I said ALMOST.

I believed in their product before but after visiting their office, getting to know some of the employees better, and spending a weekend promoting the brand, I love it even more.
|My teammates were the BEST cheerleaders|
Every time I drop that little tablet in a bottle of water I find myself with a little smile on my face. A smile that reminds me of the fun times I had with some fantastic runners and people who I truly consider friends now!
|My team – how did I get so lucky?|
