I had to write an Iditarod update, especially for you students at Otto H.H. Petersen School, who seemed to catch the dog-mushing bug when I was there visiting earlier this month. Guess what, kids? Remember how I told you to keep an eye on Lance Mackey? Well, he did it again…win number three, and without using any clever tricks on his sleep-deprived opponents. He just blasted down the trail and won that race. So congratulations, Lance!
And thanks Principal Kelly Powell andÂ you 4th- through 6th-graders at Petersen School. It was a full day and I loved meeting all of you.Â Check out www.iditarod.com to see the resultsÂ and running times.
