I have long been interested in all sports from an early age. Baseball, basketball, football, and wresting were primary to me. Then I migrated to long distance running, including the Boston Marathon. From there I competed in triathlons, including the Wisconsin Ironman. More recently I completed the American Birkebeiner 34 mile classic cross-country skiing event. But now I have been mesmerized by dog mushing and would most appreciatively wish to complete the Beargrease, Kobuk 440, and Iditarod. My wife, two adult children, and four grand children seem to be intrigued by my passions

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START RUNNING SLED DOGS AND HOW OLD WERE YOU WHEN YOU STARTED?

Mushing dog takes one back to an older time and place. A simpler but more rugged time. I would like to relive those days when the only way to pass thru the land and deliver goods was with dogs and a sled.
It is therefore an honor for me to have the opportunity participate in the Beargrease Marathon, if for no other reason than to test my metal in reliving those days. Accordingly, I thank the committee for extending me the chance to compete against like-minded mushers.
I have started mushing late in life.
