What does the future hold for you and AR? I hope that the future holds more long races where I can improve my performance and bond with the Team.
Why you race? I race because I love to push my physical limits and hang with cool people for beer afterward!
How did you come to AR? I came to adventure racing after searching for things to do outdoors in the DC area, after living in Alaska and thinking that this area would have nothing to offer. HA!
How did you come to THWT and why do you stay? I showed up at the Train & Drain in early 2013 and met the team. I love the camaraderie of THWT, and the positive attitude of everyone involved with the team. Also, Paul forced me to stick with the team, after a long night with a bonfire and a giraffe.
Something you’ve learned through AR that you take with you beyond the race course? I’ve learned to never underestimate what I’m capable of!
Specialty? I like technical mountain biking, I’m happiest there, though sometimes it doesn’t like me. Injuries are my other specialty. Let’s not talk about it.
Favorite gear? A really great light, which I don’t in fact own, but I’m excited to eventually own!
Favorite race/event? Rev3 Shenandoah Sprint because it was my first AR and I was hooked.
Favorite Movie? Tombstone
Favorite Quote? “Youth is not a period of time. It is a state of mind, a result of the will, a quality of the imagination, a victory of courage over timidity, of the taste for adventure over the love of comfort.” – General Douglas MacArthur
