“I started drinking Banananuun during long runs because it was a fun treat to have as the miles blew by. I then started using it as a post-workout drink, and now I sip Nuun all day! It makes drinking water more enjoyable.”
While you won’t find Alyssa Yell tearing by racers or setting course records, you will find her ascending the hills of San Francisco daily, running dozens of races yearly, and inspiring others to do the same. An avid middle- to long-distance runner, Alyssa took up running in 2008 and immediately found her solace in the sport. She started running as a way to relieve stress and enjoy some alone time, but ended up falling in love with the energy she found in racing. She began with the half marathon and worked her way “backward” to 5ks and 10ks. She then moved on to the marathon and is eyeballing an ultrarun down the road. Still, she constantly finds herself toeing the line at various 13.1-mile races - the distance that most intensely pushes her limits. And she always does so with Nuun in her hand.
