"A good musher works as hard as his dogs"
I have been mushing since January 2012. The December 2012 “Can’t Depend on Snow” sled race in Fond du Lac, WI, was my first “official” race, and was it interesting! Not only had I been mushing less than a year, but I was recovering from major back surgery that I had 4 months earlier, and raced with a broken hand, bruised ribs, and a mild concussion that I had received in a mushing crash a week earlier. This earned me the nickname “Iron Will” from a fellow musher.
I had another crash (picture below right) in 2013 due to a badly built dog rig (I didn't build it), again just a week before the race. I bruised my ribs again, damaged my shoulder, and bruised my hip. Once, again, Iron Will still raced.
I continue to learn and improve every year, and plan on continuing for a long time. Sled racing is the only sport that I can do since my rabies ordeal. And I wouldn't trade it for the world!
