Bridgett (Allen’s daughter) got an opportunity to fly to Koyuk on Sunday and arrived just in time to see Aliy and her team mates leave for the run towards Elim. She was able to fly over the trail and got these fantastic shots!

Thank you for the wonderful pictures Bridgett.

Bad math earlier, and I'm glad. I have to coach today, and there is no way I want to miss the finish.

Keep on pushing to your rest in White Mountain Red team.
You're doing awesome! Good dawgs!

Thank you Bridgett for getting the shots and thank you DogLog crew for posting them in the middle of everything else you've got going on (i.e. obsessively watching the tracker!). Go Red!

You may be thinking of Iditarod 2014, if you think...

dogs should wear cleats.
sleds should have wheels and bumpers.
mushers should wear football gear.
it's heart pounding excitement.
Aliy is amazing.

Never mind the last part, Aliy is always amazing.

The Black team better high tail it to Shaktoolik, so Allen can watch Aliy finish.

Aliy vs. Aliy update…

Aliy 2014 has arrived at White Mountain check point, and she did, in near

16 ½ hours less than Aliy 2012!


I’m still sleep deprived; however I believe it’s closer than my estimation for travel from Koyuk to Nome, which neglected to include the trip from White Mountain to Nome. Ha ha, but it was a decent estimate of when she would be leaving White Mountain.
