In their Shoes: Nikki O

Q1: Who are you? Describe your work, life, and sport of choice.

Hi everyone! I'm Nikki O. (@nikkiohkeyf). I'm a wife, mother, and a stay-at-home mom. I have two daughters that are 4 and 3 years old, and I have one baby on the way as well as three dogs. While we've got a full house, I run around the roads, parks, and trails of Maryland.  

Q2: What is your sport of choice? How did you get started with it? Do you compete in races, if so what's your favorite distance? 

For as long as I can remember, I have always loved running while playing outside which was brought to a whole new level running competitively in high school track & field. 

When I was in track, I ran the 800m and under. From high school into my adulthood, I was an inconsistent runner, but I did train for a few obstacle runs. I joined my local She Runs This Town chapter in 2018 to run in the snow in a tutu, and since then my running escalated quickly to my first marathon in 2019. Right now the 10 miler and half marathon are my favorite race distances, but I'm hoping to do an ultra in 2022.

Q3: What is your driving force behind your sport? 

Growing up, my friends always told me I'd be the mom who would keep bugging her kids to play more. Running is how I play outside as an adult. I can take on a new challenge or just enjoy the outdoors. I feel most like myself when I run, and I believe my family benefits from the positive effects running has on me. 

Q4: What are three words that people use to describe you?

Caring, committed, bold

Q5: What is your favorite thing to listen to while working out (music, podcast, audiobook, etc)...or do you prefer to go without headphones?

Prior to 2020 I almost always ran with a friend so I didn't listen to anything. With more solo running, I love to listen to podcasts including A to Z Running and Another Mother Runner.

Q6: What is your favorite meal or recipe?

I was spoiled by two Grandmas who are fantastic Filipino cooks. My family enjoys Chicken Adobo regularly. 

Q7: Name a book you recommend to all your friends?

I'm an oldie at heart. I recommend reading Price and Prejudice at least once.

Q8: What is your secret pleasure TV show to indulge in?

I could watch Bob's Burgers over and over, and I will watch documentaries and docuseries that cover any sort of topic. 

Q9: Last question - what are your favorite workout shoes?

Brooks Ghost used to be my go-to, but now I'm finding a love for my Topo Athletic Phantom shoes.

Just buy it

I love these tank tops, they are not tight and constricting. I used to use a flip belt to hold my phone while running but the Koala Clip is way more comfortable. The tea was a lovely surprise, it is my favorite brand. Love the Picky Bar too.

I gave it as a gift to a friend so I actually have no idea what was in the box but all I got was rave reviews from my friend. I’m guessing it was really good. She even ordered the tea that was in the surprise box after she finished what was given to her in your box.

Such a fun package!

I love this promotion! It’s so fun to get a new surprise koala clip and now a tank this year! The teas and chocolates are also great. This is my second year getting one and I have definitely started to look forward to it!

Amazing gift

Love my box! My Koala clip & tank top are just what I needed and all of the other items are a great addition.

Gretchen Addison

This box was awesome! I was prepared to not love the message on either the tank top or the Koala clip, but both ended up absolutely perfect for me! And the Koala clip was my all time favorite color/pattern! Also, it’s rare to get a bunch of dark chocolate from anyone instead of milk chocolate, and dark chocolate is the only chocolate I eat, so I loved that the box came with all dark chocolate!
