Win some, Lose some

So, remember how I was super excited to apply for the NUUN Hood To Coast relay team?!
Yeah… well… that didn’t work out. :/
But you can check out the lucky 36 girls HERE
yesterday I was super sad about not making the team. (yes, I cried. a few times. don’t judge me)
today… I’m better.
MUCH better.
wanna know why?
about an hour before nuun made their announcement, I checked my email.
I noticed a special email in my spam folder.
“Primitive Fuels iPad Giveaway”
hmmm… I knew I recognized the company name… and vaguely remembered entering a giveaway.
So I opened it, marked it as safe.
I freakin’ WON AN IPAD!!
for reals, this-is-legit, WON AN IPAD!
I even tweeted them to make sure it wasn’t a sick joke. ;)
and guess what came in the mail ALREADY?!
this was right after a killer WOD at Elevated CrossFit – no judging the way i look.

The cool peeps at Primitive Fuels even threw in an awesome tank top for me!!
in case you were wondering, Primitive Fuels is a new company (local for UT peeps – they are in SLC)
that makes ‘cavemen’ style meal kits, basically, PALEO kits. 
You can check them out HERE.
And even though I had a bad experience with Paleo (you can read about it HERE), 
I am considering giving it another go, with a few tweaks, that is.
Maybe I could try some of Primitive Fuels kits?!! :)
so… the moral of the story is…
You win some, you lose some. ;)
(FYI: nuun-HTC relay team, I’m coming for you next year. be prepared.)

    Congrats on the iPad. How exciting. Even better that they didn’t make you wait long!

  4. ummm holy freaking shit!! That is so cool. Like for reals I am in shock right now and so excited for you. I’d take an ipod any day over running hood to coast. Woot, woot!

    IPad is waaaayyy cooler than H2C! Okay, maybe it’s a tie, but that really is the raddest thing ever.

    maybe you’re only allowed so much happiness for one day – trade off? If its ANY consolation, a lot of my friends have run HTC and said its a HUGE, disorganized cluster mess and that Ragnar hands down has it right with field size, signage, and logistics.

  7. Monica says:

    Coolest thing ever. I thought your Nuun post/entry was fab! They will miss you.

  8. Courtney says:

    bummer on HTC but AWESOME about the iPad!!! i can’t believe it was real, i would have probably deleted the dang email!

  9. Corrie Anne says:

    NO way!!! Congratulations. That’s awesome. Definitely helps with the disappointment, right?


  1. [...] stocked up on some Larabars (not pictured) and Primitive Fuels. Remember when I won the iPad? Well, Jon from Primitive Fuels was awesome enough to send me (and Elevated CrossFit) some samples. [...]
