About Me

I’m Nikki.

I love to run. A lot. I also love to talk about running. A lot. (Yay for you!)

To me, running is more than a physical activity or a way to stay in shape. When I run, I connect to myself and re-center. My thoughts become clearer, my heart lightens, my emotions balance out, and my body relaxes.  Life’s complications seem to smooth out, even if for a little while. It is meditation in motion.

There is more to life than running, of course.

I have an amazing and supportive husband, Mark, who is not really into running yet (I’m trying!) but is right there for me always, whether it is on his bike, with his camera, or at the finish line. We share a lot and like to stay busy, so you’ll be sure to hear about some of our adventures. We also own a home and two sassy cats. I love this little life we have made together and cherish it above all else.


I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, so I spend my weekdays providing therapy to people struggling with various emotional issues. Helping others is not only something I am passionate about, it is part of who I am. And I cannot say enough about the benefits of running for mental health!

Other things I love: Friends. Family. Food. Sweets. Wine. Kitties. Clothes. Shopping. Traveling. Sunshine. Chai lattes. The list goes on.
