workout regimen

Here at Greatist, we’re about experience. From hiking the Appalachian trail to surfing indoors, the team likes a fun difficulty. When I located out regarding an opportunity to run in one of the biggest relays in the world, I understood I could not pass it up.

This year I’m running Hood to Coast, a relay that extends 200 miles from Mt. Hood, Oregon, to (you presumed it!) the Oregon coast. Groups of 12 joggers split the distance, each running three various legs, amounting to 17 miles: down hills, along trails, and with cities, till crossing the sandy finish line.

But what makes this so freakin’ amazing isn’t really just that we’ll be going for all one hours of the day (and also evening!) across among the most beautiful states in America. I’ll be running with Nuun, one of Hood to Shore’s sponsors. (If you haven’t attempted it, Nuun is a self-dissolving, sugar-free electrolyte tablet computer that helps individuals stay hydrated while running, cycling, or resting about at their workdesks.) When the business revealed they were organizing three groups of running blog writers, I enthusiastically used as well as was chosen through my own blog site to participate on the fun.

Want to capture a glimpse of the activity? Look into highlights from last year’s race.

The gun goes off on Friday, August 24th. Follow me on Twitter (@lschwech) as well as Instagram as I catch just how my group and the various other Nuun teams are doing while we go to the Pacific– fully hydrated, and all. I’ll be joining 29 various other remarkable blog writers, together with the team at Nuun, so make certain to examine out their blogs and cheer them along, too. As well as stay tuned for a wrap-up once I return to find out about the relationships made, views seen, as well as miles covered along the way!

What was one of the most epic race you’ve ever before done? Any ideas for a rookie racer like me? Share them in the comments area listed below!
