Skagway, AK

Growing up in the Duluth area training sled dogs in the great north woods has made it so that Northern Minnesota will always feel like home. Even though life can make some crazy changes, sled dogs and their love for running does not change. It is a blessing to work with the dogs and share in their joy and passion for running. I am excited to be participating in the Beargrease Marathon for the first time. My handling crew have all completed this challenge multiple times, and I am sure they will undoubtedly have a great time bestowing all of their wisdom upon me as I make my way down the trail.

What inspired you to start running sled dogs and how old were you when you started?

We started running dogs when I was in my early teens. My little sister had a dream of running sled dogs, she was the only one with enough sense to not get completely hooked!
