The last great human wilderness action-adventure sport is on. Nay, it’s not just human, it’s human-animal interactive, dynamic competitive race against time.
The Iditarod Race is an amazing event. Hundreds of dogs, dozens of mushers, thousands of volunteers – and a thousand mile trail along Alaska’s wildest, coldest frontier landscape. The 2012 edition of the race is underway along the so-called Northern Trail.
And speaking of ladies, let’s spend a moment about the other great lady of Alaska – Sarah Palin.
This blog wouldn’t have been drawn to this race if it weren’t for Sarah Palin. In fact, all things about Alaska are fascinating and beautiful only because of our love and esteem for Governor Sarah. The governor simply opened up a whole new world to millions around the globe. This blog finds it compelling to seek out and post amazing things about Alaska, about Alaskans and about Sarah.
Simply put, Governor Palin puts us in a state of adventure. For us Sarah Palin totally personifies Alaska. Her political philosophy is icing on this cake of discovery.
Interesting things about the race: just completing the race is a great honor, just as in a marathon race; finishing in the top half is a distinct achievement; repeat winning is an awesome result of dedication, discipline and luck. The race is a beloved tradition that seems to involve virtually every Alaskan. There is an excellent series about this race available for streaming on netflix/roku: The Toughest Race On Earth 2008.
May safety and good health accrue to all dogs, mushers, staff and volunteers involved. And may Sarah Palin prevail and grow in strength!
