Can Aliy keep up with her Dogs?
Aliy is in Anchorage this weekend. She is a participant in the Anchorage Running Club's Big Wild Life Runs half marathon. Friend, and Clarion Suites Director of Sales and Marketing, Linda Steiner, convinced Aliy that this summer she should try to "keep up with her dogs."
On Sunday morning, the half marathon starts two blocks away from the Iditarod Starting line in Downtown Anchorage. At Mile 4.5 Aliy will travel the exact same route as her dog team will during the Iditarod in seven months. Of course, she will get an entirely different perspective of the trail this time of year!
The Half Marathon Route and the Iditarod Route start two blocks apart but converge soon after.
Aliy's goal is to travel the trail during a different season and earn a little more respect from the SP Kennel canine crew at home. So, be ready to pass out the Ibuprofen on Sunday evening!
