Meet Dani Nichols
Dani offered her story of overcoming the mental challenges of running with the story, "It's All In Your Head", in the book, The Ultimate Runner. Dani (on far right) is an everyday writer who is also enjoys running in addition to her husband, good coffee, country music and free museums.
She offers these thoughts behind her running:
Why did you start running?
Because I needed to fit into my wedding dress. ;) No really. I've never been a very good runner, and have always forced myself to do it because of outside reasons, but of course, once I started it became its own therapy.
Running wisdom you wished you learned earlier in your running?
Favorite tip you pass along to runners?
Most read/used running book?
Favorite running memory, run or race?
Your running dream?
To get to the point where running is not as hard for me as it is now. It's not as tough as it used to be, but it's not as wonderful as I hope it is someday!
What keeps you running?
My husband's long legs, kicking up dust in front of me. :) And, of course, how it feels to run well. But I'd say keeping up with my man is definitely a priority.
