So much to blog so little time!

Mitch Seavey's famous lead dogs - Taurus & Tanner lead the team through
the Tudor Crossing section of the Ceremonial Start trail.
Anchorage, AK March 7, 2015
This weekend was a blast! I want to find time to blog about all of it with pictures and video and all, but at this point I don't know if that's possible. How does Sebastian Schnuelle do it?!

The race JUST STARTED today and already it is moving very quickly. All teams are in Nenana - with most of the top names well out of the checkpoint and on the trail to Manley which is a 90 mile trek. Most will break it up into two runs, resting at some point along the trail.

At present Nic Petit is in the lead, with Aliy Zirkle in front of him - the standings won't show this as they only to by times in and out of checkpoints, but if you can follow along with the GPS tracker you get a better idea of what is going on. A lot of teams are resting at the moment.

I'm doing my darndest to get photos edited - I took 1,601 pictures at the Ceremonial Start - as well as get videos uploaded. It's slow going as I keep falling asleep! I guess I wore myself out more than I realized!

Anyway, back to editing. I won't be staying up much longer. They're expecting the first team around 2am. It's the first night, I don't need to be up to see them come in.
