My 2013 Hood to Coast Application!

The last week of my life has been dedicated to putting my 2013 Hood to Coast application together! I am excited and nervous all at the same time. It is going to be a long wait until April 17th when the teams are announced. I had so much fun making this video and boy did I learn a lot about how to make videos. I don't think I have laughed so much in all my life! My son really wanted to be a part of my application and I think his contributions to my application are priceless! 

I am so thankful to my friend Caroline who helped me get my application together. She was one of the lucky, well I should say, most deserving runners who was selected last year and she had the time of her life. She spent so much of her time this past week answering my texts and offering her ideas and opinions on the final details of my application. Had I not made the decision to start this blog, I would have probably never met this wonderful woman who lives right around the corner from me. 

Running Hood to Coast is a once in a lifetime experience and it would be a dream come true for me so I hope I am able to experience it this year. This would be the ultimate vacation for me. Running and having a great time with others who share the same passion as I do? Who could ask for more. I will be patiently waiting to hear back from Nuun and I hope it is good news! Wish me luck and here is my application. I hope you enjoy it!


Did you submit an application to run Hood to Coast this year?

  1. Great video, love the Caroline intro and your son popping in and out of it. Good luck! I wish I could have applied since I am not doing it with my Team Beef this year, but I can't swing it!

    1. Thank you Madison! He really wanted to be a part of my application and since he is my biggest fan I could not refuse his offer. I think we found the perfect role for him which is a true representation of his personality.

    1. I think that is why I look so serious in my video because if I even smiled the slightest bit, we would burst out laughing for five minutes. That kid is something else and we love your part. We like to watch it to see your part. You have the greatest personality and we just love the Canada shirt!
