What is your Why?.. Why are you here today and involved in Iditarod?:
THE BIGGEST THING IS BEING WITH THESE INCREDIBLE ATHLETES,THESE SUPER ATHLETES. I WAS IN ATHLETICS GROWING UP, AND THIS IS JUST – THEY ARE SUPERB. AND I LOVE BEING WITH OTHER ATHLETES AND JUST THE TEAMWORK WE HAVE WITH THE ATHLETES AND THE VETERINARIANS AND THE MUSHERS; AND JUST THE WHOLE TEAM OF THE IDITAROD TOGETHER.

I KNOW THAT, BEING RETIRED, THAT I AM ENJOYING LIFE MORE AND MORE. AND LIFE IS GOOD. AND BEING OUT HERE IS JUST AN INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE THAT I HAVE. AND I JUST WANT TO KEEP UP THE EXPERIENCES..
