Nicklaus is a self described, “ultrarunner, beard grower, plant eater, and lover of mountains” based in Alexandria, Virginia. Nicklaus is new to ultrarunning– having started 15 months ago, however he already completed numerous ultra races from marathon to 100 mile distances and recently won the Rosaryville 50k.
In this episode, we discuss how Nicklaus found ultrarunning, training for his upcoming Grindstone 100 miler, plant based nutrition in endurance sports, and the social media community as his biggest inspiration for training.
