Today is day 3 in the frozen tundra and our friends, Blake and Jennifer Freking, are moving toward the front of the pack. Their starting positions were numbers 54 and 60, respectively. Out of the 95 racers still on the trail, Blake, Jennifer, and their amazing dogs had moved up to positions 41 and 42 and then back down to numbers 57 and 58. It’s still early in the race, but clearly, it will be a challenging journey.
A photo of Jen and Blake’s dogs, Frog and Coho, was featured in the March 2nd image gallery on the official Iditarod website. Click here to see all the images (Frog and Coho are number 13 in the March 2nd gallery). To check out the rest of the race action for yourselves, visit www.iditarod.com
Keep up the great work, Team!
