And broke the speed record by five hours!

Dallas Seavey came from behind to capture his second Iditarod championship in three years early Tuesday morning, mushing his team of seven dogs through a wind storm that knocked Jeff King out of the race and prompted Aliy Zirkle to hole up in Safety for more than two hours.
Seavey was three hours behind Jeff King yesterday, yet still smashed the old record for the fastest Iditarod ever.

Aliy Zirkle finished in second place, only three minutes later.

Been in the goat barn all day playing midwife. I had to check your blog to see who won! I was hoping Aily. She stood a very good chance of winning almost to the end!....Maybe next year.

Thanks, Mamma Bear. She was only 2 minutes & 22 seconds behind Seavey, so you never know!
