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.
I can’t keep it quiet any longer, I will be signing up to run the 2017 Iditarod under Vern Halter and Susan Whiton’s Dream a Dream Dog Farm. Many thanks go to those who have supported me running next year: Lee, Kari and Kevin, Kevin, MaryJo and Jeff, Jon, Rob, Bob, and of course my amazing husband, Larry! If you would like to join the team, follow the Support Cindy button on the Home Page.
Larry and I are back at Vern Halter’s Dream a Dream Dog Farm in Willow. We were welcomed with -7 degrees F. Yesterday was the first time I have run dogs since I crossed the Iditarod finish line in Nome on March 22, 2015. It was a beautiful day AND Larry went with me on the runs (2 teams). Life doesn’t get much better!
