Despite still being in her infant years, Mini Miss GPS has already become a formidable force in adventure racing!  In the short time since she burst forth onto the world, she has attained medals for several events, such as the Mother’s Day Classic, the Canberra Times Fun Run and the City to Surf!  Not only has she completed these events, she even managed to beat the more experienced (and longer legged) Mrs GPS across the line every time!  In addition to these lofty achievements she has already shown herself to be a keen mountaineer and trekker; already scaling Pigeon House Mountain, Koscuiszko and Diamond Head Crater in Hawaii - though at this stage she still comes behind her esteemed father, Mr GPS on these climbs (something which the determined trekker will no doubt correct in short time!)

As the progeny of Mr GPS, her excellent navigation skills are already coming to the fore. Indeed, not only has she learnt to navigate using a map and compass before she can read, she has already improved on the classic technique of holding a compass next to the map for orientation.  Mini Miss GPS has already discovered the efficiency of holding the compass in her mouth; this way her tongue can determine which way is north, leaving her focus soley on the map and road ahead! It could almost be said that she is at one with the compass!
