Explain the feeling you had the first time you put on skates.
It was awesome because I could go faster than I could run. The falling was not as fun.
What is your inspiration to keep skating?
To keep on improving my personal best in each event and to look for new challenges like Montreal 24 or the Berlin Marathon.
We truly believe skating makes a better world. How do you think skating makes the world a better place?
Skating makes me happy and can bring that same joy to others. In my ideal world, I would get to skate everywhere instead of having to use a car. That would save gas and help reduce our carbon footprint.
How do you keep progressing and reinventing yourself?
I am always learning, whether it is from my coach or guest coaches that he brings in or competitors at marathons or events. Each person brings new ideas & training techniques that I can use.
What’s the most helpful tip you want to share with any skater?
Work until your idols become your rivals. This is a hard sport with a lot of challenges, but is also very rewarding. Keep working towards your individual goals.
Imagine a world filled with animals who can skate. If you could be any of those animals what would you be and why?
I would be a wolf on skates. They have fantastic endurance, and imagine how fast I could go with that speed and the right skates.
