Neighbourhood Champion: Nicola Taccone

Nicola Taccone

I am a fourth year student at you U of T in the Faculty of Kinesiology and Physical Education. From a young age I have enjoyed participating in different sports and being physically active in general. In high school I began running as a form of exercise and have continued with it ever since. This past June, encouraged by a friend, I participated in the Nike Women's 15k run which was my first ever race. This past month I took part in a 10k race in Oakville, and on October 18th I will be running my first ever half marathon at the Scotiabank Waterfront Marathon in Toronto. I hope to continue participating in races as I thoroughly enjoy running as a form of exercise as well as training for events and setting personal time goals for each one. In addition, the atmosphere that I have encountered at both of the events I have participated in is extremely positive. To have complete strangers standing on the sidelines cheering for you as you run by is an amazing feeling! It is this positive and encouraging atmosphere, as well as my desire to constantly challenge myself and improve my running times, that has resulted in me continuing to sign up for races.
