Two Rivers Solstice First Place Finish

Congratulations to Aliy and the Red Team on their first place finish of the Two Rivers Solstice race today! Aliy came in after approximately a 3 hour and 22 minute run on the second loop of the race course. The official race run times have not yet been posted, but that is a quick calculation.  The run was about 10 miles an hour which is a good pace in the current weather conditions. Aliy's comment coming into the finish line was "It's really warm now (30 degrees). The trail is a little mushy and the dogs are a little hot right now."
After trading out some dogs and adding a few from Meghan's team, Aliy continued on her way for another 25 mile run.  She will mush her way home around 2:30AM. This will give the dogs a solid 100 mile run for the day. A musher's work is never done!

Is that Mac? The coloring seems right, but the dogs looks like Cutter, there, something I don't usually see in Mac.
