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.
Cool. The Iditarod just posted a video-interview with me which was done on sign-up day back in June. I think you may have to be an Iditarod Insider to watch it, but if you are going to follow the race, you want to sign up to be able to keep up with everything.
It’s official: I am signed up to run the 2017 Iditarod under Vern Halter’s kennel. AND I won the $4000 entry fee back!!! That is pays for 4000 booties!!!! Awesome day with the volunteers, teachers, and other mushers.
