Initially, Nikki shared a little glimpse into her attempt at breaking the 273 mile Long Trail speed record in less than 4.5 days with some segments of a video project (Finding Traction) that documented the journey.

Nikki then moved into the heart of her sharing with us – coping with depression and how exercise has been a positive influence along this journey. A vulnerable and real sharing by one of the toughest in sport.

Here is a video of Nikki’s sharing with the entire camp Saturday night.
