The first Iditarod finisher is in. Dallas Seavy reached Nome this morning. His race time was 8 days, 8 hours, 13 minutes and 6 seconds with 10 dogs. Congratulations!
We are cheering for one of our favorite mushers, Aliy Zirkle of SP Kennel. Her team of Scout, Scruggs, Nacho, Quito, Scooter, Willie, Chica, Mac, Mismo, Waylon, Izzy, Schmoe and Clyde left the White Mountain checkpoint at 3:24am headed for home! They will be into Nome shortly!
The Iditarod is a 1,000 mile sled dog race that began on Monday, March 9 with the ceremonial start on Saturday, March 7. Stay up to date with the mushers here.
We asked Ruger, Denali, and Calypso if they dream of running the Iditarod. Our response was a request for belly rubs.
