"I always take a moment either when we're traveling to the competition or at some point during the competition, and I take it all in and I kind of say thanks that I have the opportunity to be here, because before all I wanted was to get to this level," Radford said. "Now I'm in the middle of it and I don't want to take it for granted. With each competition -- and even the shows we were doing this year -- I really appreciate it.
"Even when I'm really nervous before the competition, I'll take a deep breath and be like, 'I'm really nervous, but at the same time I'm lucky to be feeling this way.' There are other skaters in Canada and in the world that would love to be in my position."
