Running 63 marathons in 63 days in your 50th year seemed a little crazy to most, but maybe a ‘little dash of crazy’ was what it was going to take.
This inspirational story tells the tale of how turning 50 years of age became the catalyst for Nikki Love, an occasional marathon fun-runner, to reunite with her ambitious, give-it-a-go self of younger years by embarking on an extraordinary running adventure.
With a plan to run 63 marathons in 63 iconic locations throughout the UK, Nikki soon learns that plans don’t always go to plan, and that being adaptable, remaining committed to the big picture, and relying more on her mental toughness, as well as a ‘little dash of crazy’ rather than conventional marathon running skills and techniques, would be the key to her success.
Nikki shares the highs, the lows, the raw emotion, the sheer hard work and commitment needed as well as her vulnerable side as she tells the story of the places she visits, the people she meets, the many obstacles she overcomes and the lessons she learns as she runs a marathon a day for 63 days through the scenic landscape of Scotland, England and Wales.
♥ This is the first of Nikki Love’s “Chasing Extraordinary Adventures” series, stay tuned for her next tale of where her feet take her, the things she sees and the people she meets along the way ♥
