We have been feverishly training dogs. The snow is awesome and the temps have been pretty good...other than a four day span of -50F to -55F. We took those days off. The team has 1000 miles on them so far. We are thrilled with where they are at right now. Our first race is December 14-15th, the Alaska Excursions 120 in Willow. It's a sprint race of crack ;) Two day heats of about 42 miles each day. The following weekend I'm running the Solstice 100 in Fairbanks. It's a regular mid-distance race, but is just 100 miles. After that I will be doing some long runs (8-16 hours at a time) in preparation for the Copper Basin 300 in January, followed by the Yukon Quest 300 in February and then the grand finale....the Kobuk 440 in April.
I have some exceptionally happy feet this season! The Mukluks are warm and so comfy to wear! I love that my feet don't weight a thousand pounds with the bunny boots I'm normally constantly wearing this time of year. I also wear them to school! I have a bit of a commute, and at -55F, I dress like I'm going for a run instead of driving to school. They're easy to drive a car in as well. Lol
Here is a pic I took yesterday from a run I did. I have some other pics I want to send to you too from our training so far. They will each be in their own email as I am not sure how to mail more than one from an iPad.
Thanks to you and Patti again!
