Lisbet Norris

The Iditarod is more than a few weeks past now but this year I finally got to see the finishers come into Nome.  I only caught a few of them come in but now I have seen it with my own eyes.  So many grueling days of harsh cold wind and frost bite. Fatigued and bleary eyed they make the 1,000 mile trek with their team of dogs. Really Amazing.  
In the previous post Jannelle had completed the Jr. Iditarod and was the first girl to finish.  She received a fur hat made by Libby Riddles herself. Libby was the first woman to win the Iditarod race.  She was there at the Iditarod finish and they got to meet and have a quick picture.
