  • Trackshot Tuesday! I can’t imagine how difficult it must be to have your track and/or XC seasons cancelled. Here’s how I would have dealt with it mentally: what an incredible opportunity you have!! You now have the gift of time, time to address underlying physical weaknesses, time to explore different training methods, time to build mileage and strength. They say absence makes the heart grow fonder, imagine how incredible it will be to step back on that track and compete again! Make sure you are ready when that day arrives. 💪🏼

  • “Nick, will there be a fall XC season and should I be training?” This question hits me like a punch to the gut, never thought it would be a question that I’d be asked. Tbh, I don’t know if there will be a season.  But I do know this, with 100% certainty, you should be training. Train for the upcoming season, train for the season after that, train for the love of the sport, for the camaraderie and community it brings. Train because we live in a dangerous and chaotic world, and one thing that you can control is the choice to lace up your trainers and do something wonderful for your mind and body. I’m training, I hope to see you out there. #MondayMotivation

  • I wore my Alphaflys for 24 hours straight! Put these crazy shoes through tons of tests (link in bio for full video) and found out what they are incredibly good at and where they absolutely suck! 😝

❗️I’m also giving a brand new pair of Alphaflys away, link to that giveaway in the video description on YouTube. #alphafly #giveaway

  • People ask me a lot about barefoot running. My opinion, unless you’ve been running barefoot since you were born, you are asking to get injured if you run a lot of miles barefoot. However, I do love to do a few easy barefoot strides on the grass or turf after an easy run. Feels good and helps to strengthen the feet and lower legs!  #WorkoutWednesday

  • Evolution of a sponsored athlete! Each partner came along at the perfect time in my life and I’ll always be grateful for their support of my career as an athlete. Today, I am pushing my body to limits I never thought possible and I have @gymshark to thank for it! Have you tried their gear yet? It is as good (or better in some cases!) than anything I’ve worn before. Highly recommend their joggers, hoodies, and running shorts! 10/10 ❤️🦈

  • An object at rest tends to stay at rest, an object in motion tends to stay in motion. Coming off a long holiday weekend, don’t beat yourself up if today’s workout isn’t stellar. Just get out there and start building that momentum back up! 💪🏼 #mondaymotivation

  • This photo, taken exactly eight years ago, was shot at the meetup area behind Hayward Field. I had just made the 2012 Olympic Team and was so excited to go hang out with the fans!! Bummed we didn’t get to meet here in Eugene for the 2020 Trials, but I am optimistic that the 2021 Olympic Trials will be incredible. See you there! #PandaPandaPanda #tbt 🐼

  • Did you know that fear of success is a thing? It’s actually something I’ve struggled with many times in my life, but I never knew what to call it until @lewishowes identified if for me. Why would anyone be scared of success you might ask? Well, I’m scared it will change me, change the way people look at me, change the way I live my life. I am, and always have been, averse to change, no matter whether the change is good or bad! I’m trying to be less fearful, to continue to grow as a person and to embrace change. While 2020 has had its challenges, it has also been a very good one in some respects. I’m not going to be embarrassed or fearful of the success I am having. I am going to celebrate it. This past weekend I celebrated by fulfilling a life long dream of becoming a plane owner. I am now the proud parent of N155BP (pronounced one-five-five-bravo-papa) and I couldn’t be happier!! Thank you to everyone who has supported me over the years. I LOVE YOU ALL!!!! #TransformationTuesday
