Episode 303: Nicole Monette – 2nd at the Hoka One One Carbon x 2 100K; Mom of three & full time Physical Therapist

Nicole Monette took second place at the Hoka One One Carbon X 2 100K in Chandler Arizona last month. She is the mother of three – three young kids, ages 18 months, 4 and 7 and a full time Physical Therapist.

Nicole ran her first 100 miler last fall – the Yeti 100 and won the race in 16:19. Out of college she ran with Brooks Hansons for a bit and qualified for the 2012 Olympic Trials in the marathon. She started her career and family and has sort of recently (last few years) been doing the Ultra thing.

Nicole wakes up at 3:45am everyday throughout the week to get her runs in before heading to work at 7am so that she can have family time when she gets off work. I am inspired by the way she does life and her message to the World at the end is just the best.
