Every winter I get a few folks asking if I’m heading back to Alaska for the Iditasport race on the Iditarod trail.
That’s an easy “no”, especially after reading about this year’s race.
It’s not that I didn’t enjoy the race, at least once it was over, it’s just that it’s an amazing tough, enduring race that really could be life threatening if ones luck ever ran out in the remote Alaskan bush.
And I was very fortunate to have a good race on my last attempt when a professional video documentary was made. Popping the DVD in the player is an easy way to relive the misery — or just reading Mike Curiak’s blog.
However, I still have hopes for running the Susitna 100, a shorter 100-mile race where the odds are much better for being rescued should things get ugly.
