Iditarod Update

All our chosen mushers have arrived in Nome. Here is a quick update for Iditarod 2009:

Andre's choice was Lance Mackey, and it was a good one since he won again! He finished the race in first in 9 days, 21 hours and 38 minutes with 15 dogs.

Adrienne had picked Jen Seavey. She finished the race in 43rd place, in 14 days, 1 hour and 47 minutes. She started with 16 dogs and finished with 14.

Lastly, Rachel Scdoris (my choice) finished in 45th place. She took 14 days, 10 hours and 8 minutes and arrived with 11 dogs.

With the kids in school this year, and a March break away from home, we didn't do as much activities, but we still enjoyed keeping track of each musher's progress through the race. We will follow it again next year!
