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

I’ve been on the runners of a dog sled since before I could even walk, My mom got my sister (Talia) hooked into dog mushing and I followed closely in her footsteps! My sister Talia has been one of the people I’ve looked up to most throughout my years of training and racing sled dogs.
