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!!! 😀 )
As I don’t know when I’ll be starting again, or where I’ll be, if you are interested in running with me please fill out the form and my Team will be in touch when we know what’s what!
Look forward to seeing you soon

Hi I’m Nikki Love and I’m here to do my best, be my best, have a blast and bring as many people as I can along for the ride. I’m Chasing Extraordinary!
Since … well ever since I can remember, I’ve been into moving, training, looking after and loving my own body and mind, and since the age of 19 I’ve been encouraging, inspiring and helping others to do the same.
My love, my passion, my sanity is now adventure running. It’s the wonderment of where can my feet take me, who I’ll meet, and how I can help along the way.
My goals are simple – share as much knowledge, experience, adventure and love throughout my days through writing, speaking, and adventure running.
I choose to live through these 3 filters …
LOVE. FUN. ADVENTURE.
Come and join me on my next doozy of an adventure …
