Musher Question & Answer

How many years have you been running dogs?

Tell us about your dogs?
My team will be composed of rookie phenoms and wily veterans. Let's hope that I can keep up with them.

How did you get started running dogs?
My mom and dad met through dogs. My father is a Yukon Quest and Iditarod veteran.

What do you love most about running sled dogs?
Everything from the occasional sufferfest involved with making it to the starting line to the glory of finishing a race.

Why did you enter the Yukon Quest? What are your goals for the race?
I want to race and Jeff is giving me a shot. My biggest goal at the moment is to make it through the summer and then start focusing on making it to the starting line...we'll worry about the racing once we get there.

How did your dogs get their names?/ How do you choose names?
I've got some creative friends...
