Nicole Champine

What is your educational background and how did it bring you to Varsity Sports?
I have a BSBA Xavier University OH, MBA Indiana University.
Over the past 20 years I’ve been a salesperson, brand manager, and motor oil evangelist and selling running shoes is my favorite job yet.

I have been at Varsity Mandeville for 1 1/2 years.

Favorite race locally and nationally? Why?
Indianapolis 500 Half Marathon for so many reasons…  Indiana is my home state and May in Indianapolis is like Mardi Gras season in NOLA because of the Indianapolis 500.  This race does one lap around the famous 2.5 mile oval track and I have run it every year with my brothers for the past six years.

Pre-race food of choice?
Banana and a bowl of cereal

Random something no one knows about you?
Ask me to pronounce the word “trough”.  I’ll get it wrong, guaranteed.
