Biography

We can do this race one more time. I plan to run this mostly to enjoy the trip across Alaska. I have a nice group of young, talented dogs and we will use this run as part of a training run possibly for next year’s Kusko 300. Dogs that make Iditarod no matter how long it takes, go home with a new toughness and a certain pride in their eyes, they accomplished a tough race.
