What is your Why?.. Why are you here today and involved in Iditarod?:

I’M INVOLVED IN IDITAROD BECAUSE I GET TO NOT ONLY GO TO BEAUTIFUL UNIQUE PLACES IN ALASKA, BUT IT’S JUST SO INSPIRING TO SEE EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING THAT’S INVOLVED WITH SUCH A BIG RACE. THE LOGISTICS ARE INCREDIBLE, THE DOGS ARE AMAZING AND THE MUSHERS ARE INSPIRING. SO IT’S JUST FUN TO BE A PART OF IT.

Tell me about your most rewarding experience on Iditarod?:

I GUESS FOR ME, I HAVE TO WORK HARD TO MAKE SURE THAT I DON’T GET RUN OVER BY TEAMS A LOT. AND SO I DO MY BEST TO NOT POST HOLE AND WIPE OUT AS DOG TEAMS ARE GETTING PARKED.

What do you know for sure?:

WELL, I KNOW THAT ALASKA IS AN AMAZING PLACE AND I’M JUST THRILLED TO BE HERE. AND ANYONE WHO HAS A CHANCE TO COME SEE IT, SHOULD COME SEE IT.
