Zach Steer 3rd into Nome!!!!

I was on pins and needles all morning waiting to see how the race for 3rd and 4th place had played out and of course I had a meeting. They all thought I'd gone quite mad I was so excited about it! Congratulations to Zach on a great race!

From the Anchorage Daily News. Check out the whole article here.
Hard-charging Zach Steer passed four-time champion Martin Buser just outside of Safety, the final checkpoint 22 miles from Nome, and cruised to the finish line before dawn Wednesday to finish third in the 35th Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. Steer, the 33-year-old owner of Sheep Mountain Lodge, crossed the finish line on Front Street at 3:46 a.m., completing a run of 9 days, 12 hours and 46 minutes.

Having a connection to a couple of the mushers, no matter how tenuous, has made the race fun to follow! There are still many teams still on the trail, including Robert Bundtzen, so I'll continue to follow their progress until they all get to Nome.
