|Nicki is a nice lady...but a bit flighty!|
I have always loved running. It is the simplest form of adventure because all you need is a pair of shoes (or not even) and a place to explore. I run for many reasons - for fitness, to compete, to explore new places, to push my limits, to decompress my day, to kick-start some creative process, to breathe fresh air, as a social occasion, as an excuse to travel, and for the pure pleasure of moving swiftly across some terrain.
I have done eight full marathons, two ironmans, eleven ultra-marathons (included one that was over 200 miles), fast-packed 1000 km across SW Australia, and represented Canada in long course triathlon.......and I feel like I'm just getting started!
I choose to run for the Mully Children's Family because it is a way of bringing together my three great loves: Africa, education and running. I spent four years living and working in West Africa and thus have a special connection to the continent and her people. And, at very my core, I am an educator.
