Nicole joined a running club when she started college at the University of Arizona. Although her goal was only to build a basic fitness regime and make friends, she quickly found herself racing 3 half marathons in her first year of running. Several races later Nicole made the leap to the full marathon distance. Today Nicole has ran 13 marathons and 20 ultramarathons. Nicole plans to run across Ohio in Fall 2018.
Nicole enjoys the energy of races as well the runner community associated with every event. She describes her race experiences and journey as a runner on her website, BonkToTheFinish.com. Living in Columbus, Ohio, her biggest challenge is pushing herself out the door in the cold Ohio winters. She is ready to return to Arizona for the Phoenix marathon and enjoy an Arizona winter for a change!
