As many of you may already know, John Baker won the Iditarod today with a time of 8 days, 18 hours, 46 minutes, and 39 seconds! In the process, he broke the record previously held by four time Iditarod champion, Lance Mackey. Finishing the Iditarod is an incredibly feat in and of itself, but to run it in record time speaks highly of the relationship the musher has with the dogs as well as the massive amounts of time spent training.
To wrap things up, I've got one more Iditarod themed blog for you to check out. It's Jason Barron's Blog. His tag line is "A place where outdoor adventure, long distance mushing, and creative writing collide." I really enjoy blogs written by people who have the natural ability to write and write well. He has his own way of telling the story of the Iditarod and I think that he does it in a way that is enjoyable for a wider audience of people to enjoy. I hope that you'll head on over there and check him out!
