My name is Taylor Speirs, I’m a 24-year-old chiropractic student currently living in Toronto, Ontario. I completed my first sprint triathlon 5 years ago and I’ve been hooked ever since. I recently completed my first Ironman 70.3 in Muskoka, Ontario, and I will be racing in the Lake Placid 70.3 this September. Triathlon is unlike any other sport I’ve ever participated in, as it tests not only your physical strength, but your mental strength. When you complete long distances with multiple disciplines, you truly prove to yourself that you are capable of anything you put your mind to. Aside from triathlon, I enjoy all things outdoors, including surfing, mountain biking and travelling.
