After spending the season training and developing new leaders, I realize the dogs just aren't ready for the challenge of Iditarod. This was a very hard decision but ultimately the best for the dogs.
Over the years I've encountered a number of combat veterans who have made a big impact on my life. I am dedicating my 2021 Iditarod run to honor them and other veterans.
