Nicola Gildersleeve grew up an athlete, but didn't discover her natural talent for running until she was a young adult. She faced some serious adversity while playing basketball at college, battling eating disorders and bad relationships, but was able to find her way out through running. She began on the roads with little training, and eventually realized that running a 3 hour marathon is not normal! Nicola now has an impressive list of accomplishments including 11th at Western States, multiple Knee Knacker podiums, and the FKT as the first woman to complete the Sunshine Coast trail in one go.
