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

WE’RE HERE TODAY TO PACK THE VOLUNTEER FOOD FOR ALL THE VOLUNTEERS OUT ON THE TRAIL. AND I’M INVOLVED IN IDITAROD BECAUSE IT’S WHAT I’VE ALWAYS DONE. IT’S WHAT I GREW UP DOING. I’VE RUN THE RACE NOW FIVE TIMES AND THIS IS WHAT I DO EVERY YEAR.

Tell me about your most rewarding experience on Iditarod?:

WELL, I WOULD SAY THE MOST REWARDING EXPERIENCE IS EVERY TIME IF FINISH. ONE OF THE MOST SPECIAL FINISHES WAS WHEN I FINISHED PREGNANT WITH MY DAUGHTER.

What do you know for sure?

NOTHING IS FOR SURE, BUT WHATEVER HAPPENS, WE’RE GOING TO HAVE FUN DOING IT.
