Iditarod Re-start Moving to Fairbanks

It is official – the Iditarod Re-start is starting out of Fairbanks due to the poor trail conditions in the Dalzell Gorge. This is the same route I ran in 2015. It was a very cold race with temps dropping to negative 50-60 degrees F. Hoping for a little warmer temps this time.

Back on the Runners

Great to be back on the runners again. On March 22, 2015 I crossed the finishline in Nome and stepped off my sled. Today was my first day back on a sled (thanks to the 10 inches of snow which fell yesterday). It was wonderful! And appropriately, Flood (the then 2-year-old-leader) who lead me under the Burled Arch, lead the team today.

After 13 days, 11 hours, 19 minutes, and 51 seconds my team of amazing canine athletes bring us across the finish line!
