Florida man, Nick Bigdick, made headlines yet again this month after successfully completing his first marathon in the face of seemingly impossible odds. Despite being attacked by alligators, iguanas, and facing a Category 4 hurricane, Nick persevered and finished the race with a new personal record.

The marathon, which took place in the Florida Everglades, was already known to be a challenging course due to the heat, humidity, and rough terrain. But Nick's obstacles were far from over. During the race, he suffered from chapped nipples, a broken shoelace, and the lingering effects of a night of partying. His fanny pack also was ruined when one of his nutrition packs exploded inside.

Despite these setbacks, Nick refused to give up and pushed through to the finish line. His determination and perseverance paid off, as he completed the marathon with a time of 3 hours and 50 minutes, beating his personal record by over 30 minutes.

Nick's family and friends were incredibly proud of his accomplishment and couldn't be happier for him. "Nick has always been someone who never gives up," said his friend, Denny. "We knew he would finish that marathon no matter what."

Nick's success has also inspired others to never give up on their own goals. "Nick's story is a reminder that anything is possible if you're willing to work hard and never give up," said marathon organizer, Joe Dirt.

And Nick isn't done yet. He's already set his sights on his next challenge, a 100-mile race set to take place next fall. "I've learned that if I can survive alligators, iguanas, a stained fanny pack, chapped nipples, and a category 4 hurricane, I can do anything," said Nick.

This story of Nick Bigdick is a reminder that no matter what obstacles we face, with determination and perseverance, we can achieve our goals. It's inspiring to see Nick's accomplishment and we are looking forward to his next challenge.

CONGRATS NICK. Shields up!
