Clueless in Seattle...Day #2

After spending Wednesday afternoon wearing my brand-new hat and groping one of my closest blogging friends ...and getting dehydrated (no one brought the Nuun)... at the baseball game, followed by watching several bloggers get hammered over the course of the evening (though some probably had that situation well underway at the ball game...or before...), I experienced a fitful sleep. I awoke with a little, teeny headache that I had to banish quickly because Thursday was going to be a very full day.

I wanted to feel my best when I reunited with Nuun Platuun Van 2...my team from last year :)

Left to right: Tonia (Racing with Babes), me, Susan (Nurse on the Run), Kim (Nuun), Jess (Blonde Ponytail), Harmony (Keep On Keeping On) and Casey (Nunn driver extraordinaire)

I did not need to be feeling my best for a run that morning...

Psycho running bloggers who can't get enough...

I planned on heading up the ass-sitting mimosa-drinkers...but we were too early for brunch so Starbucks had to do... turns out a lot of us were not so psycho...

Left to right:  Tricia (Tricia Minnick), me, Lindsay (Lindsay on the Go), and
Amanda (Runninghood)...

Katie (KatieRUNSThis), Kelsey (Go Girl), I can't remember, Tonia, and
Caroline (that Canadian woman).

The reward for ass-sitting...or running (some even swam in the lake!)... was a trip to running apparel company Oiselle's headquarters where we were gifted a sweet tee! Thanks so much, Oiselle :)

Then Jennifer from The Fit Fork got us all hooked up with Jamba Juice smoothies for breakfast...

...after which several of us headed to Whole Foods courtesy of chauffeur Robyn (Run Pretty Run Fast) where I purchased a whole chicken...among other things. Yes, I really did. But I ate it all and there are no pictures.

Then we returned to Nuun HQ where we were given a bag full of amazing goodies!

GNC nutrition, Thorlo socks, GoSportID, Endorphin Warrior bracelet (Believe is my code word), team t-shirt and hat and jacket...what am I forgetting?



A purple sparkly skirt.

Then we were off on a scavenger hunt...the Nuun-mazing Race.

My team, Clueless in Seattle, was comprised of Vanessa (Gourmet Runner), Nicole (RicoleRuns), Tonia, Harmony, and me.

So many items on the list were here...and Tonia even caught and kissed a fish...
Here they all are at Pike Place Market after finding the bronze pig...
I am not pictured because I am spending some quality time in the bathroom.

We needed to find as many pigs as we could...apparently Seattle is famous for pigs.

I asked these gentlemen where we might find some pigs, 
the bald one demanded to know why I thought they would have any idea...
thinking, of course, that I had been referring to them!
Which was,  of course, brilliant :)
Seattle's finest helping out the Nuun ladies.

On to the waterfront...

Ferris wheel and Space Needle...
Very difficult to get both of these attractions in one photo...but we are magic.

We needed to give away all of our tattoos...

He was giggling.
He actually started to drop his shorts so we could tat his butt :P

We helped inanimate creatures stay hydrated...

force-feeding the otter (yes, otter) Nuun.

Of course Team Clueless in Seattle won. 

Then again we did have special help....

Time to cram all my stuff back into my ginormous duffel again...vans leave in 45 minutes!

Woo Hoo!  Hood to Coast here we come!!!!
