 What do you train for? Motivation come from?

I love the feeling of being in good shape, and feeling like I can float up the wall. This sensation of flow comes easier to me when I am physically prepared for whatever objective it is that I am climbing; when I’m not concerned about failure, but only thinking about the positive goals that I have. This motivates me to push myself and train to be the best climber that I can be. 

Favorite Movie of all time?

So many good ones to choose from. I’d say my favorite genres, though, are Documentaries and Movies based on historical events/true stories. I do love a good rom-com though.

An exercise you have a love/hate relationship with?

Stretching (LOL)
