Why did you enter the Yukon Quest? What are your goals for the race?
Having grown up in Eagle, I have witnessed the Yukon Quest passing through town each year. My father ran it three of those years. My mother Scarlett Hall has managed the Eagle Checkpoint for as long as I can remember and I assisted her. Now, I want to go out and experience this great race and see what my team and I can accomplish.
