What race are you looking forward to in 2019?

I am looking forward to JWOC in Denmark and the Canadian Orienteering Championships.

What is your faovurite orienteering event that you have done so far?

My favourite Orienteering event that I have done so far is O Ringen because it is a great international event where you meet lots of people from other countries.

Which map in Canada do you think all orienteers have to try at least once?

I think all orienteers have to run in Bow Valley in Alberta.

How do you normally prepare for an important race?

First I have a good night sleep the night before the race.  In the morning I eat some nutritious light food.  Then when I am in isolation I begin my warm-up about an hour before my start time.  I start my warm up with some dynamic stretches and ensure that I stay warm so my muscles are not stiff. I then go through the warm-up exercisess I practice with my track team such as strides and ABC’s.  I spent the last 5 minuites before I leave isolation prepping myself mentally, rehearsing what I will do when I get the map.

What do you like to do outside of orienteering?

I enjoy running, cross country skiing and math outside of orienteering.
