It's that time of the year! I absolutely love to follow this race (even before we lived in Alaska!). The race officially starts tomorrow, today they had the ceremonial start (lots of fun and a short 11 mile run through downtown Anchorage).
Bib numbers 19, 22, 36 are all live near us. Travis (#19) is our neighbor and is a rookie this year. It has been fun watching him grow up with his dog team and this has been a lifelong dream of his. We are very proud. #22 Dallas actually won the race last year and his dad Mitch is #36.
Anyway, I will be sharing my excitement with you all over the next week or so.
Here is some basic info about the trail. They will be doing the southern route this winter.
