How will you be spending your Winter Break from school?
Well, if you were training for the Junior Iditarod, you would be spending it on the runners of a dog sled! Having lots of free time from school means having lots of time for extra training runs!
There are now seven junior mushers signed up for this year’s race! It’s a pretty even division – four rookies and three veterans…. Three girls and four boys!
Before we left school for our Winter Break, we checked in with Nicole Forto who is running this year’s Junior Iditarod to see how her training is going. Click the link below to see what she has to say. Nicole Forto December Update
Here are some pictures she shared with us from Thanksgiving time!
