What keeps you motivated to train for the sport? Every time I am out in the woods the experience is different. Every course I complete I could have been a little bit faster. Every time I step to the start line I know I am on the brink of another adventure.

What is your favourite event? The W*A*R! I have yet to win it.

Do you have a pre-race ritual? Tie shoes TIGHT. Have a look at which way is north. Run for a half hour at the very least and do a few sprints. Concentrate and go.

What would be your best orienteering memory? My initiation to become a W*A*R Veteran as I slogging with Nansen Murray for over 3 hours in 10cm of slush on June 10th 2008.
