Iditarod Wrap Up.

Another Iditarod is in the record books. Lance Mackey of course was first in and walks away with $50,000 and a new Dodge truck.
Iowa musher Matt Anderson finished in 41st. place in just over 12 days.
Personal favorite, Rick Swenson finished in 26th place in just over 10 days. To show how the race has changed, his run this year is faster than any of his 5 winning times.
23 teams dropped out of this years race, including 4 time champ Doug Swingley, and perennial favorite Dee Dee Jonrowe.
Congratulations to all the mushers in this years race!

The Iditarod is cruel to dogs. For the facts: http://www.helpsleddogs.org
