‘The Girl That Loves To Run’
“I am me” – I said proudly. “And I Know That’s Enough.” An ordinary girl, trying extraordinary stuff.
Nikki had a great big adventurous dream to run 63 marathons in 63 days throughout the UK. Could it be done? Some thought not, but she believed she could. With her super-crack-crew of helpers – Rufus the super-dog, Sharif the coffee-fairy, and old Stan the Van – Nikki set off on her extraordinary running adventure to see how far she could run.
A real-life fun adventure story about self-belief and finding personal strengths – your true super-powers!
I’ve been visiting schools since 2017 – sharing running tales, taking run sessions, including schools on my running adventures.
My visits to school are FREE – it is part of my ethos and passion to pay it forward.
50+ schools visited

26 Free “TGTLTR” books given to schools (so far)

63 marathons in 63 days through the UK
Running around Ireland

Unfortunately, during marathon 13 Nikki started getting a severe pain in her right hip. Anyone that knows Nikki will not be surprised to hear that she did complete the marathon distance, but when we got home I had to carry her to the house as she could not walk. She got some treatment from our amazing friend Clare Biddle, but the next morning she was still in a great deal of pain. After a visit to the oesteopath, and then 6 hours in A & E, Nikki still doesn’t know what the issue is (X-rays confirmed that it’s not a break though).
So, she is currently hobbling around on crutches until we can get her hip and pelvis scanned.
What this does mean though is that the 100 marathon in 100 days has come to an end…for now. Nikki has every intention of starting again as soon as possible, so hopefully a good diagnosis next week will mean she can get back to her marathons, starting at number 1 again.
I will be sending out emails to anyone that has signed up to run with Nikki, so please keep an eye out for these. We’re not sure how we will re-schedule everything as this will depend on how long Nikki needs to recover, but we will keep everyone posted.
One last thing. I want to thank everyone who has run with and supported Nikki so far, and for all the messages of support she has received from people. It means a great deal to us both, so thank you 🙂
Sharif (on behalf of Nikki, because I do everything!!! 😀 )
I’m all about getting children active and believing in themselves, and have a series of school programmes that use my adventures as an aid to doing this. As well as context to how far they are running, I have a workbook that the children can write down how they feel and their goals, and activity sheets for them to enjoy.
