Her sister Jessica writes: Nicole has changed my life and our family’s life for the healthier, inspiring me and others to reach for goals we did not know we could attain. She encouraged me to run my first 5k a couple years back. She ran by my side the whole way, I’ve continued running and have since lost 50lbs.
When my son completed his first race last December at the Santa Claus Shuffle. Nicole was the first one on the sidelines with a sign to cheer him on.
Nicole is an incredible motivator and supporter, her ‘can-do’ attitude is contagious and has inspired our father to lose over 50lbs.
Nicole has always been the athlete of the family but when she met her husband Jim (an Ironman) that is when she looked at doing endurance sports and competitions. She has run numerous 5k’s, triathlons and even a half marathon while pregnant, she ran in her first marathon (Big Lake Half Marathon) for Make A Wish and raised over $1000 towards their cause.
Nicole is a wonderful wife, mother, aunt, sister, daughter and friend. She leads a healthy lifestyle, and inspires all of us to improve our own lives and health with her encouragement and support.
