Today, March 3, is the ceremonial start of the Iditarod in Anchorage, Alaska! The restart happens tomorrow in Willow,AK. To learn more of about this 1049 mile dog sled race from Anchorage to Nome, please visit the official site! There, you will find lots of videos, insider info (if you become a member), forums, a store, and links to resources for the classroom.
Even though I am in South Dakota, I still enjoy keeping track of my favorite teams. The beauty of the Internet! 🙂 Gooooo Team Seavey!
I heard of the Iditarod for the first time last summer at the LASCBWI conference, when Gary Paulson spoke of it. Wow! I would love to be able to follow some of it live! Thanks for this link, Loni!

You’re welcome Joanna. It’s pretty neat to be so far away and still be a part of it.
