Well, in a few hours, the real Iditarod race begins, and teams of huskies will begin racing across 1049 miles of rugged wilderness from Willow to Nome. (Yesterday was a ceremonial start). Here's a link to the official site, for those of woo wanting to keep up to the latest news. There's all kinds of furry interesting stuff and links on their home site. Enjoy the woos!
A few weeks ago we started our 2010 Iditawalk. It's a fund raising event sponsored by the Boy Scouts Troop 298 of Nome Alaska. Pawticipants sign up and walk a minimum of 1049 minutes between Feb. 1 & March 31. Those who complete the walk get a furry cool pin! Last year, a whole bunch of us from the SiberMal Society pawticipated as Team SiberMal International. Mom kept up a blog, with interviews, facts, and photos of all the team members. Check it out if you have time.
This year she has a lot of stuff going on, so she hasn't done a blog about it, but we're doing our walking faithfully! Yesterday we walked on the beach, which meant extra fun watching other pups & peeps, waves, birdies, not to mention all those good salty-sea smells!
