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

I WORKED THE YUKON QUEST IN COPPER BASIN AS RACE JUDGE. I ASKED MARK NORDMAN IF HE NEEDED HELP AND HE SAID YES. SO I WANTED TO SEE WHAT THE BIG OTHER RACE IS.

Tell me about your most rewarding experience on Iditarod?:

THAT WOULD BE WATCHING THESE MUSHERS THAT I FOLLOWED ON THEIR QUALIFYING RACES, AND TO SEE THEM GO ON AND FINISH THEIR IDITAROD RACE.

What do you know for sure?:

THAT THERE’S ALWAYS GOING TO BE ANOTHER DOG RACE SO I GUESS I’LL GO ON LIVING.
