I’m a sponsored athlete!!!

Well… I’m not getting paid.  And I’m still paying my race fees.  But I am now officially part of Team Jamba.  This is a group of 100 athletes recruited by Active.com to be ‘brand ambassadors’ for Jamba Juice.

As part of the team, I have been asked to promote Jamba Juice, specifically the new Super Fruit Smoothies.  Luckily, that is easy to do because I LOVE Jamba Juice.  In fact, I went today to try the new Yumberry Smoothie.  I love tart smoothies and this one definitely fits the bill.  They have recently introduced food options that I am looking forward to trying this summer.  I’ll be passing out Jamba Juice coupons at various events.

I was given a shirt, some running shorts and a visor to wear at events this summer.  So a lot of my race reports will include pictures of me wearing this:
jamba shirt shorts and visorjamba shirt
The front says, “I have superpowers” and the back says “power your Super Active Summer with Superfruit.” 
I am pretty excited. I’m not an elite athlete, nor will I ever be.  Being a part of a team of athletes is something that doesn’t come along every day.  I will do my best to represent well.

Unfortunately, I won’t be able to wear my new gear at my next event.  Unless, of course, I want to trash it.  Tomorrow I am running the ASYMCA Camp Pendleton Mud Run.  It is the charity event for the World’s Famous Mud Run.  I am going to get wet and muddy and generally beat up.  I am looking forward to every minute of it.  I am bringing a waterproof disposable camera, so I hope to have some great pictures to share. 

Happy running…

Awesome! Sponsored athletes are cool, and people don't know you aren't getting paid so they will think you are special... I mean, you are special but they will think you are extra-special :)

Good luck on the Mud Run tomorrow!!! Remember to go right up the middle of Slippery Hill. And if you want to have a good time, start hanging around near the start line at about 8 or 8:15. They will herd you in like cattle at about 8:30 or so, and you will not want to get stuck in the back.

Anyway, have fun!!!!

Congrats!!! That's very cool. My hubs and I used to go on Jamba dates when we were dating in college. I haven't been to a Jamba Juice since that time though.

Enjoy the mud run, you had some pretty great muddy shots last year, right?

Could have used you out in Corona yesterday! It was warm at the finish line.

Hope your mud run went well. Sounded like a lot of fun. Even if I don't like squishy shoes....

That is soooo cool! Jamba Juice was a sponsor of the Nike Marathon a couple of years ago when I ran it. They were handing out free smoothies to finishers at the end. The best smoothie I've ever had, hands down!
