My Husband Is One Lucky Man

Let me tell you how much of a party our night has been in the Jara household.


Yes that’s right.  A box of Wheat Thins, coffee cup of candy, and my first glass of Nuun.


Just hanging out in my compression gear and snacks.

PS:  If you haven’t tried Nuun, do it now.  I LOVED it — and while I’m sure it’s mental, am actually starting to feel better.  I may have found my new hydration trick during my long runs (and the night before, it’s seriously tasty).

Now if that isn’t how you get ready for a long run — I don’t know what is 😉

Of course, there has been some dinner somewhere in there as well.


Our CostCo spinach ravioli with a whole lot of roasted veggies underneath.  Topped off with parmesan cheese and roasted acorn squash seeds from our dinner last night.

How resourceful is Zach?  He remembered loving pumpkin seeds when I’ve baked them, so he tried it with these as well. Smart – and tasty!

We’ve already watched one movie tonight, and 3 episodes of Park and Rec.  So if you’ll excuse me.  I need to get back to this party.

Man my hubby is one lucky guy 😉

Question of the Night: Have you tried Nuun?  Thoughts?

  1. I discovered Nuun a few years ago and love it. I’ve never liked sports drinks which are usually too strong and sugary tasting for me. I also tend to get really dehydrated running during the summer and need something more than water. I’ll drink a Nuun before a long run and after and it helps a lot!

  2. I love Nuun! What flavor did you try? I’m partial to cherry limeade 🙂 Also, I don’t think it’s mental, I’ve drank it when I’m feeling a bit hungover and it’s a miracle drink

  3. Oh, I love the NUUN. I used to drink Gatorade, because my friend/coach/mentor/sensei told me that’s how it HAD to be done. It caused tons of stomach issues for me… I felt like I was dragging all the time. A little research later and I figured out that stomach issues is a common thing for runners who rely on Gatorade. I swapped to NUUN, and have been running happier and stronger since! I hear Hammer nutrition is a good idea too, I just didn’t like the taste… it was…dunno…empty-like to me.
