My weekend kicked off with a Nuun shipment. They were giving away a free pint glass with any order and now I love this brand even more! Not only do they want to help keep me hydrated, but they understand that endurance athletes sometimes like to indulge in a more dehydrating beverage, cheers!
I’ve been out of Nuun for the past week and dying with plain water and GU Brew. I bought GU Brew & Hammer Nutrition Endurolytes FIZZ about a month ago just to change it up and see how it compared to Nuun.
I used GU Brew all this week, it’s not awful, but tastes salty. The Hammer Nutrition tabs are the grossest thing i’ve ever tried to drink. It tastes like the stomach acid aftertaste when you throw up. I know, i’m sorry for the description, but it’s bad. Basically what I’ve gathered is to stick with Nuun cause it actually tastes great without any weird after flavors or saltiness.
Saturday Cameron joined me for the last 2 miles of my 7 mile run. I swung around the apartment to get him and this is what I walked into…
He was all ready to go, just warming up and stretching 🙂 It was nice outside, but windy.. it’s that time of year where gloves and beanies are important. I hate when the back of my hands get cold and Cameron absolutely needs something covering his ears. I love being outside all year. DC is definitely scoring some points over Chicago weather. I don’t think I could ever move any further north than we are right now.
Yesterday we spent some time at the mall and online doing a little Christmas shopping. I also am in need of a new cell phone. I’m looking at the HTC One, Galaxy S4, and of course the iPhone. If anyone has opinions on carriers (I currently have Sprint but am open to switching) and phones I mentioned, it would be a big help!
Shopping and driving in this area really wipes us out, so as soon as we got home I poured a glass of wine, played some piano, then we watched the Capitals lose to the Toronto Maple Leaves. Don’t worry it was still a good game!
The best part of yesterday was the snacking we did during the game. I looked at the table after the game I asked Cameron how the heck this happened…
I guess it’s what happens when you eat a late lunch at Panera, don’t cook dinner, then snack and drink throughout the evening. Doesn’t matter, it was a fun night!
