Nikki is a DPT at Lynden Family Physical Therapy. Her favorite distance is stage racing or Triple Crowns. She loves getting to spend multiple days on the trail exploring a new place, pushing herself at different distances in one weekend, all without having to do miles in the dark. After many years of road marathons she switched to primarily trail running and focuses on 50k-100k distances. With her road & track background she prefers smooth, buttery singletrack over rugged mountain terrain. 

Nikki’s fondest running memories are all the places she has been able to travel to with friends. Fast-packing around Mount Blanc, stage racing across Slovenia, summer weekends in the Cascades, and many many trips to California. Her favorite race memory was winning the inaugural Mammoth Trail Fest Triple Crown or having a near perfect day at Lake Sonoma 50 in 2018.
