and the winner is…

Iditarod teams are sprawled across hundreds of miles of Alaskan wilderness.

A few of the front of the pack are headed for the coast.

Mitch Seavey, the old man of the father/son teams battling it out for a few years (Dad mostly coming in on the kid’s tail) has “the best team on the trail” and is kicking butt along the coast of the Bering Sea. He is blasting along at a whopping 8.7 mph… whopping if you consider this is a bunch of dogs who’ve been doing this for the last 737 miles…738… 739…

Of course there is this…

Dallas Seavey presents a real problem for any front runner because he is innovative and persistent.  In our race, he is just seven miles behind his father Mitch Seavey. on the trail to Unalakleet.  He is of the school that believes everything is not as ROSEY as it seems, and therefore believes a crack could widen, an opportunity could present itself, if only he was ready.

Ah yaaaaaaaaaaaaas it is a RACE now…

as always, the dogs themselves determine what the humans do…
