Well now that my first blog giveaway is done, I can go back to my regularly scheduled program. I have 2 or 3 product reviews I want to get up before leaving for Antarctica (on December 1st… damn that’s soon) and I’d like to recap my first ever major marathon viewing experience (hint: it was exhausting). I was looking forward to this weekend to write some stuff and taking some (more) embarrassing photos.
Then nuun was looking for one last runner for the nuun/Pro Compression Ragnar Las Vegas team. If you know me at all, you know I love random, spur of the moment travel. In high school, I once took a <24 hour trip to New York City because it was the last month Les Misérables would be on Broadway (maybe I shouldn’t have just admitted that). My college spring breaks tended to be “hey let’s get in the car and see where we end up.” It’s just how I do things. And I had just been complaining that I didn’t run a relay this year.
At 4:30PM yesterday, I bought a ticket for a flight that leaves at 5PM today for Las Vegas. nuun relay teams (they’re KINDA a big deal, by the way) are typically all-female affairs. As a leg-shaving, women’s-shorts-wearing, compression-sock-loving red-blooded American male, I like to think I’m the perfect person to crash through this barrier.
So guess what? I’ll be with 11 women I’ve never met before, screaming (literally and figuratively) through the desert, stayin’ hydrated and lookin’ good in our compression socks. Team nuun/Pro Compression will be kicking ass and taking names all weekend in Vegas. Follow along on twitter or more generally with #RagnarVegas.
Because nuun and Pro Compression are apparently awesome, you, my dear reader(s) [HI MOM!], get to reap the benefits of my strange/awesome/maybehorrible decision making. Stop over at the nuun online store with code ragnarvegas for 20% off through the end of the year or the Pro Compression online store with code nuunpc for 40% (?!?!) off and free shipping!
Also, to my vocal cords: I’m sorry for what I’ve put you through two weekends in a row.
