Colleen and the dogs made it through another T-200 despite incredible winds and deeply drifted trail that forced many other mushers to scratch. She placed 11th overall. She finished with 10 dogs which included Zoom and Oaky who led to the finish, as well as Goliath, Penny, Nuk, Butterscotch, Crumb, Cyder, Karma and Zoya. Our pound puppy Ibn made it approximately 130 miles and was still pulling well, but moving slightly slower than the rest of the team, so she dropped him to maintain a consistent team speed. Yearlings Waylon, Yodel and Hank made it 175 miles, and Hank even stepped up and led a brief, but tough section in a storm above treeline. All three pups could have gone further, but as always Colleen was conservative in her judgement with these young dogs, not wanting to push them too hard in their first year of racing. Look for a more detailed race reports from Colleen as soon as she gets a hot shower and catches up on some much needed sleep.
