Christmas Q&A with Stefan Sander-Green

Were the first NorAms what you were expecting?

I don’t think you can ever really be 100% ready for the first races. No matter how much intensity you do, it’s always a shock to really get out there and race. Going into the first NorAms it’s always exciting to see how much your summer training is going to pay off and how you compare with the other athletes from across the country. Over all it felt like I was in good shape and it was a lot of fun to be out there, so I think that’s a good thing.
