It all started with an email...
(sorry if you've already ready about this on Sarah's blog, but damnit I want to post about it too).
And now it's turned into an Internet sensation:
Ok fine maybe 626 pageviews is a little less than what Jbeibs gets on his videos, but it is my ambition to make The Nuun Mile the biggest viral running sensation the world has ever known. Move over Carly Rae Jepsen.
To Run the Nuun Mile You'll need:
4 bottles that hold at least 16 ounces of fluid. 4 tabs of Nuun. One track, and one strong stomach.
It's just like a beer mile.
Chug --> Run --> Chug --> Run --> Chug --> Run --> Chug --> Run
Here's how it worked out for me (as produced by SarahOual Studios).
Sorry if my voice / mannerisms are way worse than you imagined. Can't help it.
Final Thoughts On The Nuun Mile:
Running the Nuun Mile was actually pretty easy for the first couple laps. And I'm not much of a chugger either. By lap three, shit got serious. Seriously uncomfortable as well. I ran the ultimate positive split of my first half in 4:21 and the last half in 7:46.
But it was gloriously fun. Although it was probably fun only because Sarah was there to be my pit crew. Otherwise I would have just felt like a crazy person. I'd like to try a beer mile to compare, but I'm going to need to do that after work for obvious reasons.
A couple last things: I want someone else to try this so that I can know whether my 11:57 time sucks or not. Let me know. And no cheating. If anyone can legitimately break 9 minutes dinner's on me. So let's see what you've got....
