Excellent! Well done, Rookie! You're now an Iditarod veteran. Well done, dogs. Y'all are veterans, also. So proud and happy for all the SP Kennel clan. What a great showing this year.

Ryne, Ranger and the team....you did it! I am so proud to be Ranger's sponsor and to see him lead the way to Nome! (Ranger was my lead dog in 2009 when I went on Aliy and Allen's ANWR trip. At that time he was just a pup - 1 1/2 - in training.) What a thrill for me! What a thrill for Ryne; she did such a great job on her first Iditarod!! Looking forward to hearing all about Ryne's adventure!!

Ryne,
Congratulations on fulfilling your dream to run the Iditarod. I hope your experiences were memorable. I look forward to hearing of all your adventures - please do consider posting some of your trail stories.
Olson family, your daughter is amazing. You must be so proud of her. We all are.
Again, congratulations, Ryne!

Ryne is a wonderful young woman. The vets at my checkpoint made several comments about how poised and polite she was and how well she attended her dogs. We all knew that and now others do too.

Ryne -- Here's a little tidbit to help make your day...

It's a fact: Fewer people have completed the Iditarod than have summited Mt. Everest.

You are now a member of a truly "rarified air" club!

Congratulations!

Wow, your first Iditarod, you finished in good time and with great dogs. What an accomplishment! Great run, Ryne. We are all proud of the women of SPKennels. You rock!
