If you have a name like Battey you have to have some fun with it!
I'm Nicola and I'm crazy about coffee, cake, travelling, running and challenging myself. 

When I was seven years old I lost my mum, Jenny, to breast cancer. 2014 was the 20th anniversary of her passing away and I wanted to mark the occasion in a positive way – I completed 20 events in her memory to support Breast Cancer Now. They are the UK’s leading charity dedicated to stopping women dying from breast cancer.

Since 2014 I've continued to challenge myself in various ways from completing a half dualthon to running the Virgin Money London Marathon 2016. Whenever possible I love to get outside and drag my friends and husband with me.
