Central Checkpoint: Video Update

The Black team arrived into Central at 11.24pm where everyone had a quick rest before setting off just a few minutes behind Hugh Neff at 3.40am. Whilst in the checkpoint Allen enjoyed a HUGE steak for dinner and got a comfy rest in the mushers sleeping quarters. There was some serious strategic thinking going on so I'm not sure how much actual sleep he got!

You can't see much in this video but take a listen to Allen revving up the team - the dog he and Meghan are particularly talking about is Puppet! She was squealing to go which is quite unlike her, she is loving it!

It's awesome to see such eager excited dogs still raring to go so far into the race. So happy Allen is over both summits and on the way to his 8hr in the last checkpoint. Go Black Team!

You have mentioned Puppet a few times. I have been pulling at her with my heart strings along with Chica, Quito, Nacho, Biscuit, Olivia, Scout, Beemer, Willie, Waylon, and Scruggs. She is probably completely tuned in with the excitement of the others on the team who know this is the final stretch and they are a winning team.
