Find the limit (if it exist) $\lim_{n \rightarrow \infty}\frac{\pi+\sqrt{\pi}+\cdots+\sqrt[n]{\pi}}{n}$

I have no idea about this.

Hint: What is the limit of the sequence $(\pi)^{1/n}$? – Arctic Char Nov 12 '13 at 6:39
Hint: $\pi$ is a red herring. – Hurkyl Nov 12 '13 at 6:41
For $k\gt 1000$, $\sqrt[k]{\pi}$ is close to $1$. For $n\gt 1,000,000$, the part from $k=1$ to $k=1000$ makes no big difference. – André Nicolas Nov 12 '13 at 6:52
You could replace Pi by any number, the limit will always be 1 (1+ if the number is greater than 1, 1- if the number is lower than 1) – Claude Leibovici Nov 12 '13 at 7:04
I can find the upper limit \pi and the lower limit 1, but I have no idea the next step. – Jason Nov 12 '13 at 7:05

Following Greg's idea, note that $\lim\limits_{n\to\infty}\pi^{1/n}=1$ and use the result of this post.
