Favourite snack of all time? I really do like chocolate covered things.
Worst training experience ever? They really don’t come often so I’m sure this one isn’t actually the worst. I sprained my ankle while doing a trail run and couldn’t actually stand for 30 min because I felt so nauseous.
If you were a Harry Potter character, who would you be? Luna Lovegood
Favourite race course/location? I’m not being biased at all. My home club, Temiskaming Nordic, definitely has one of the hardest and most fun race course I’ve ever skied.
Do you want to climb Mt. Everest? I mean it would be pretty cool to brag about, but it’s not on my bucket list.
Double poling or striding? Skate
Worst pre-race food consumed? I don’t think I’ve ever had a bad pre-race food experience. I’m really not picky with pre-race food. I could probably eat a donut and still get away with a decent race. Although, I’d probably get hungry before even warming-up.
Most impressive teammate you’ve been around, and why? Laura Inkila! Full time school and still killing it at skiing.
Best race experience? 2016 National sprints
What inspires you most? Our national anthem.
If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? Muffins
Sundby or Johaug? Johaug
Best training experiences ever? Whiteface Mtn. zone 3 workout is always a memorable one.
If you had to compete in a summer Olympic sport, what would it be? Track running or road cycling
Hardest workout completed, and why? Nic’s gym workout and KJ’s famous Lake Placid track workouts. #dead
What movie have you watched the most number of times in your life? It’s between Spirit, Lion King 1 ½ or The Fox and the Hound.
Book you’re reading right now? Textbooks.
What is the most epic workout you’ve ever done? Hiking in the Adirondacks with the biggest packs ever! We summited 3 peaks in one day and hiked about 35km in probably around 36 hours. It may not seem epic, but trust me, it was!
