Two Rivers Valley FUN-ale

I'm racing a stellar team in the Two Rivers Dog Mushers Association's Valley Funale 20 mile, 10 dog race this morning.

The Funale is a fun community event put on by the TRDMA that includes mushing races for adults, kids and an easter egg hunt.

Would you believe I get to run Quito, Chica, Nacho, Olivia, Pud, Rambler, Scout, Mismo, Felix and Chemo? Holy smokes!

Remember that these dogs are mid and LONG distance racers not sprint racers so my goals are to get the dogs home safely, have fun and improve on my placing from last year (I won the red lantern in this race last year).

I'll get some photos up once we get home.

Go Moira - you really do have an all-star team. I hope you have a blast! Hope some of the more laid-back semi-retired leaders make a showing in the kids races. Best of luck to Jacob and Sammy if they are part of the kids line-up. Sounds like a really fun day for everyone. Enjoy!

Wow!!!

What a thrill to run this team of champs!!! And future champs!!!

So long as there is snow to catch the brake you should be fine!!!

And the dogs all love you, so they won't try to dump you out of the sled!!!

Have fun, best regards,

With Quito in lead and that team, they will get to run you, more like.

.. and I say what a lucky lady you are, but I know you must have earned the privilege and luck has nothing to do with it.

You Moira are the most deserving person EVER to run this race!! Not only is your Team "stellar" as you describe...but you my friend have been our "touch stone"....our cyber connection to SPK.....and this end of the season opportunity for you in my mind is as exciting as the Yukon Quest or Iditarod!! You are the best Moira...SPK wouldn't be the same without YOU!
