Nick completed his first marathon at the age of 15 and his first 100-miler just a few years later. By 19, he was the youngest person ever to complete the notorious Badwater 135 across Death Valley. Nick has an extensive race resume with wins at Fat Dog 120, Cruel Jewel 100, and Orcas Island 100. He is best known for his 2nd place at Tor des Geants and, most notably, his finish and win at the 2013 Barkley Marathons.
In 2018 Nick had open heart surgery to repair an aneurysm. Since then, he has become particularly interested in the psychological aspects of running endurance distances.
Nick is currently pursuing his MS in Sport and Performance Psychology to work with athlete identities, pre-race anxieties, and help create a stable sense of self regardless of race outcome. He is especially interested in working with former professional athletes who are looking to transition toward a healthy love of their chosen sport again.
