Iditarod 2010: Monday Morning

Good morning! I just woke up from a really good sleep -- yip woo! -- and taken my first look at the standings/GPS.

It is way, way too early in this long, long race to make any assessments or offer any analysis, but -- as some of you have noted in the comments -- both Teams are moving very well.

Over the next few days I will continually try to piece together the data and tell you what I can about how it matches up with the Teams' race plans. Keep in mind, however, that this is a very long, dynamic race and their "plans" may have already gone by the wayside.

Right now I'm going to put together a video post of yesterday's pre-race footage. Then, I will post the final line-ups and try to explain a bunch of last minute substitutions. After that, well, we'll just have to wait and see!
