Nikki Love - Adventure Runner, Ran 63 marathons in 63 days in 2017. Training to run 2,500 miles on a treadmill in 63 days…

July 30, 2020

Nikki in her own words;

 

I’m here to do my best, be my best, have a blast and meet as many people as I can along the way. I’m Chasing Extraordinary! Since … well ever since I can remember, I’ve been into moving my body, pushing, training, looking after and loving my body.  I started ballet at the tender age of 4 and it’s been all sorts of incarnations of fitness since then.

 

My love, my passion, my sanity is now adventure running.  It’s the wonderment of where can my feet take me, who I’ll meet, and how I can help along the way.

 

My goal is to share my knowledge, experience, adventures and love along the way through my writing, speaking, and social media’ing.

 

I choose to live through these 3 filters … LOVE.  FUN.  ADVENTURE.
