Biography

Jennifer Freking, 27, was born and raised in Cambridge, Minnesota. She moved to Finland in 2003. She says it is “the arrowhead of Minnesota and has great people, beautiful land and many lakes!” She began mushing in 1988 and finished the Jr. Iditarod in 1998 and has since completed the John Beargrease many times as well as other mid distance races. She says she dreamed of running her dogs in the Iditarod as long ago as she can remember. “I can definitely remember that I was inspired by Susan Butcher’s enthusiasm and success.” Jennifer graduated from the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine in 2004 and has been working as a veterinarian the last four years. A member of the ISDVMA, Jennifer enjoys running, biking, canoeing and horseback riding. She is married to Blake Freking, who will also be in the 2008 Iditarod.
