edge of your seat

18 Mar

I know you’ve all been wondering, and I’m happy to tell you (in case you don’t keep up on these things and/or read, oh, say, the Anchorage Daily News) that Lance Mackey was the winner of this year’s Iditarod race. This is his fourth win (four back-to-back wins, no less), and he rolled (sledded?) into Nome on the 16th, and for those of you who are counting, that is nine, NINE, days of mushing across the state of Alaska. Where it is very cold. And full of snow. Still.

As of yesterday, about 15 mushers and their dogs were out of the race completely, and a goodly amount more had yet to land in Nome.

Not sure if the canines pictured above made it in, but I hope so. And I hope they get a big ol’ steak for their reward.
