All mushers and dogs are safe and accounted for.

CnT, once again, you've made this so interesting to watch.

Tomorrow, I will write about the man who was honored as Musher, Bib #1, Lance Mackey.

It was an emotional race for Jason Mackey as he ran in memory of his brother, Lance. He was the winner of the Red Lantern Award for Commitment to the Last Mile. A beautiful tribute. A deliberate accomplishment, I'm sure.
