Iditarod XL Day 2

Iditarod XL MapThings are starting to sort themselves out this morning as the major contenders move to the front before the ‘carnival ride’ between Finger Lake and Nikolai – the most “interesting” part of the race.

Aliy made the run from Rainy Pass to Rohn at better than 12mph, but it is all downhill. The standings are listing the speed at 19.65mph, but that’s a mistake. [She made 48 miles in less than 4 hours]. She made it to Rohn 11 minutes after Hugh, but left Rainy Pass 30 minutes after he did. Her puppies want to run. [Note: She will stop on the trail and camp within a couple of hours to feed and rest the dogs. When they work, they eat – a lot.]
