Iditarod Update

With the leaders having already taken their mandatory 8 and 24-hour stops, the dash to the end is on with Martin Buser still in the lead.

The Anchorage Daily News reports: The pain can wait until Nome

Using a wooden handrail to support his battered and probably broken left leg, Iditarod musher Bryan Mills carefully made his way down a flight of stairs to tend to his laundry, then his dogs.

Afterward came time for a home-cooked meal. He ate with pink cheeks wrinkled in pain behind his fuzzy red beard.

“Man, this hurts like hell,” the 42-year-old Wisconsin musher confessed. “My balance is @#$%.”

Miller is currently 40th in the race. At this point 19 mushers have scratched, with 25 the most for any race.
