Nigel Taylor - Athlete Ambassador
Have you always been into sport?
Since an early age..growing up next to a rugby field I was always out playing some sort of sport.
How did you first get into triathlon?
I used to swim a lot as a child. I enjoy cycling and running so I thought it looks like a challenge. I participate in sprint Triathlons currently.
What has been your favourite race to date and why?
Probably not one race, but a set of league races. I participate in the York and District road race league.a set of 10k races on evening around the York area.
What is your proudest achievement?
Probably running the Brighton Marathon in 2019. I never thought that I would ever run that far in one go.
Have you ever had any racing disasters?
Several close calls with cars whilst competing. But broke my leg on a training run.
How do you overcome setbacks?
Positive can do attitude. A good physio and a good set of friends who supply cake and encouragement.
What advice do you wish you'd been given when you first started out?
Don't be disappointed if things go wrong in a race. We are always going to have bad days.
What are your goals?
20 min parkrun. Sub 45 min 10k in a race. Another marathon and may be a full distance Tri.
Who inspires you?
My child and my wife.
