Nikki Pavlak - Birmingham Store Manager

Journey to Movement: 

I had always wanted to run a half but didn't even know how to attempt training.  I decided to sign up for Borgess Run Camp 6 or so years ago and it changed my life.  I found this amazing group of runners, made new friends and became addicted to that runners high.  I became injured a couple of years ago to the point where it was painful to just move and then had a big move to a new city and started a new job.  I had all the excuses to not run, and really started to not feel good.  3 months ago I decided it was time to focus on myself and have been strength training and signed up for a marathon!  I am a new runner all over again running with our run camp in Birmingham.  I am loving the journey back to fitness, even though it is not easy I find that if I don't move I do not feel good.

What is your favorite song? It changes probably every 6 months.  Right now Feel the love by Rudimental, it has a great beat.

What is one of your favorite quotes? Instead of a quote I put on a Fellow Flower for my runs.  Each color has a different meaning, but more then that, each flower stands for a community of fellow women runners who support each other and that is my inspiration.
