Lance Mackey won the Iditarod this morning.
Win #2 in a row. He pulled into Nome, only an hour or so ahead of Jeff King, at 2:46 am Alaska time.
I missed it this year. We followed it online (I still have my teacher password for Iditarod's website--shhhhhhh!). I will always remember feeling a part of it for 2006 and 2007. I was there.
I've shaken Lance Mackey's hand two years in a row and got to speak with him while obtaining his autographs.
I will still follow Iditarod in the years to come. I will preorder the 2008 Iditarod DVD soon.
Congrats, Lance. I wish I could be there on Saturday at the Nome Convention Center Meet & Greet to shake your hand once more.
