How did you first get involved in orienteering?

One of our ski coaches, Phil Wallensteen, would occasionally set up a ski-o course.. This was my first real interaction with orienteering. I started to get more involved with Orienteering after my brother started orienteering. The first big event that I participated in was COCs in Canmore (2016). After my first COC event I quit being a swimmer so I could focus my time on orienteering.

How do you normally prepare for an important race?

Before a big race I like to try to find a space where there is less noise so as to not overcrowd my brain (this can be on a warm up map). If I cannot find a quiet place I may listen to music. When I am certain that I will be in the right headspace for my race I will start a warm up. If there is a warm up map I will go onto it to get an idea of the terrain. If it is a remote start I like to arrive there at least ten minutes (time may vary due to distance to start) before my start as I am known to panic if I believe I will be late.
