Meet Dani Nichols

Book cover Dani offered her story of overcoming the mental challenges of running with the story, "It's All In Your Head", Daninichols1 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.

Best running advice you ever received?
"You can go farther than you think you can," from my husband, who is a great runner and often encourages me to overcome the obstacles I put in front of myself.

Running wisdom you wished you learned earlier in your running?
Good shoes really do make a difference. They're an investment, and off-brand kicks will not make for happy feet.

Favorite tip you pass along to runners?
Just do it. Trite but true.

Most read/used running book?
It's actually not a running book at all, but Julia Child's memoir, "My Life in France" has encouraged me to take on things I didn't think I could conquer (like running) and to treat life like a giant, beautiful adventure.

Favorite running memory, run or race?
Running my first 5K. It was something I had never imagined doing, but I ran it well and actually enjoyed it! The sense of satisfaction after a race is irreplaceable.

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.
