Andrew Convery Athlete Ambassador

by Alexandra Parren

Sundried ambassador running sport fitness health

Andrew enjoys a challenge and even ran a full marathon in his back garden. He talks to Sundried about training and motivation.

Have you always been into sport?

Yes, I've always loved sport and pushing myself.

What made you decide to enter the world of triathlon?

I love all three sports and thought it was time to level up.

What’s been your favourite race to date and why?

I haven’t completed a triathlon yet and I’m still hopeful for my first in 2020. My most memorable event would be completing my first marathon; running around a 15m circle in my back garden live on Facebook the day after VE day to raise money for the charity Mind.

And your proudest achievement?

Not stopping during my first half marathon.

Have you ever had any racing disasters/your toughest race yet?

Mentally, it was the marathon in my garden. I was scared but had amazing support online.

How do you overcome setbacks?

With some downtime, plenty of meditation, visualisation and reading, which give my mind the strength to come back stronger.

What advice do you wish you'd been given before you started competing?

Don’t worry about what event you're going for, just go for it.

What are your goals?

To raise awareness and money for the charity Mind, and keep trying to push to be the best I can be.

Who do you take your inspiration from?

Ant Middleton, Henry Fraser, my wife, my children, my auntie, and Duncan Bannatyne.

What do you like about Sundried and what’s your favourite bit of our kit?

I love the kit because it's so comfortable. Choosing my favourite is a tough one between the socks and the padded coat.
