Aliy, you are an inspiration to all women. I cannot tell you how much pride, admiration, and respect I feel for you, being a woman out there TOTALLY ROCKING a sport that has historically been dominated by men. Congrats on another amazing Iditarod finish!

What I saw cross the finish line was a team of dogs with their tails high and wagging for all they were worth! What I also saw was a true champion and the face of a women who has changed the race forever with her energy, joy and dedication.

I am SO proud to be a huge fan!
