From my desire to constantly learn and improve.
Musher Q & A
Went from Inuit dogs to Siberian to Alaskan Huskies. My dad introduced me to the sport/lifestyle and we attempted to convert pet dogs into sled dogs for the first couple of years. My mentor (Marcel Morin) then introduced me to racing and sparked my dream to run the Quest into a fire.
The dogs I raised are assigned themes, ex, Guns: Remington, Ruger, Tikka or tree/Shrubs: Tuniper, Sprure, Aspen, Rose.
To have fun, and challenge myself with a foster paced race (hopefully :))
The unique lifestyle that comes with it and the feeling of being a part of an amazing team.
Snickers is a very unique dog, she is very smart so likes the coach just as much as running it seems. When she runs and gets tangled she hops up and down like a rabbit to fix the issue. This has not failed to work.
Too many positive experiences to pick one. My memories tend to be centred around food, however. Spectators handing me a burger or hot chocolate as I went by is an example of the amazing Yukon Spirit. These actions and words of encouragement mean a lot as the race is very hands-off by nature.
The country mostly but I dabble in rock and rap when I need some motivation.
