Nick Coury started running in junior high, ran high school cross country and track with his older and younger brother, they all ran their first ultra-together when he was 17, and he's been doing them ever since. Nick has done 24 races 100 miles or longer, including 5 finishes at the Hardrock 100, running the World 24 hour twice, and most recently setting the American Record at 24 hours with 173.015 miles. Outside running, Nick has a lovely wife Lauren who is an accomplished ultrarunner on her own, a dog and a cat. Nick is a software engineer at Google, and a part owner of Aravaipa Running.   We had such a blast chatting with Nick.  Nick has been an ultra-runner for 16 years and has gained a lot of wisdom.  He is also part of the family business, Aravaipa Running.  The Coury’s are a close family and that really comes through when talking to Nick.  We absolutely loved Nick’s enthusiasm for the sport and love for his family.  We discuss races and so much more.  I guarantee you will learn some things about Nick you didn’t know.  This was a fun episode. Enjoy! IG- @nickcouryruns
