When did you start competing in your sport?
I started off my sporting path as a young adventure racer at about the age of 12, I have loved doing extreme things for as long as I can remember and so when I saw the photos of the Warrior Race on Facebook I thought it would be something new and exciting to try out. I did my first Warrior Race back in 2013. It was the Black-Opps event but was more just for the fun of it I started taking them a lot more seriously last year after the first one where I was running in 2nd at a stage and saw that I could actually have a shot at racing in future.
What made you decide to choose the sport you did?
It's always an awesome event with a great vibe around the race village and like-minded people all out to have fun with friends in the mud. The obstacles always challenges you with new and exciting obstacles every time, you never know what to expect as the distance, venues and obstacles are constantly changing bring in the exciting element of training for the unknown.
Dream race?
Death Race - The Death Race is the ultimate challenge, designed to present you with the unexpected and the completely insane! Nothing else on earth will challenge you like The Death Race, both mentally and physically.
Every Death Race is it's own uniquely brutal challenge, no two races are alike. The race, created by Ultra athletes Joe Desena and Andy Weinberg, was developed as a way for athletes to test themselves both mentally and physically. The Death Races take place in the unexpectedly challenging terrain of the Green Mountains in and around Pittsfield, Vermont and have lasted over 70 hours. We provide no support. We don't tell you when it starts. We don't tell you when it ends. We don't tell you what it will entail. We want you to fail and encourage you to quit at any time.
Expedition length Adventure Race - 3 to 11 day race (or longer), involving all the challenges of a multi-day race usually mountain biking, trail running, paddling, but often with additional disciplines (e.g., horse-back riding, unusual paddling events, extensive mountaineering and rope work).
Best tip ever given?
It's not about how hard you train but rather how hard you can recover!!

Favorite quote?
If your training program doesn't scare you a little, it's not hard enough...
When did you start training @warriorfit 
Started training at WarriorFit after Warrior race #6 in 2014 which was towards the end of August...
Goals for 2015/2016
I have quite a few big races planned towards the end of the year with 3 World Championship events in the USA in October and then Warrior National Champs towards the end of November, so to perform here would be my focus for 2015.
Then I'd like to get my time for a 21km down to under 1h20min
