I MADE IT!


I cannot believe it but it is true, I am on the Nuun's Hood to Coast Relay Team for 2012: AfterNuun Delight!

They made the announcement at noon today.
I was so nervous.
I opened my emails and there it was: THE email from NUUN.
I opened it and first word I saw: Congratulations.....
Wow..I could not believe it..went to check on the official list and my name is really there...second one...it is ME.  You can see it right HERE.

I am so happy and grateful to have this opportunity.

I will represent Canadians!
I will also represent the 40+ gals!  I think only 2 of us are over 40 :)

So let the training begin!!!!
I have the whole summer to get ready and HTC will be my focus for the summer.

If you have done Hood to Coast and you have advices for me please do share!!!

Thank you for all the nice txt, emails, tweet and FB messages!

Oregon, here I come!!!!
