Taylor | Faces of Recreation

Taylor is a UBC Student in the Sauder School of Business.

Why did you choose to compete in a Triathlon?

I have always wanted to do a triathlon but I was intimidated by the long distances of traditional races. UBC’s Short distance triathlon was the perfect race for me to try out my first race. I had never biked or swam competitively so I made a gradual training schedule and kept to it.

What is a Short Triathlon?

A Short Triathlon is a 400m swim, an 11km bike, and a 5km run.

What’s next for you?

I loved it so much that I’m taking it one step further and signing up for the sprint distance for next year!
