MUSH MADNESS: THE 2012 IDITAROD RACE IS UNDER WAY!

 The 2012 Iditarod sled dog race, aptly billed as The Last Great Race On Earth, got underway today. My sister Rosemary has been a passionate follower of this event for years and got me into it several years back. Stay tuned to Balladeer’s Blog for updates on your favorite racers who will, of course be referred to here under their Official Balladeer’s Blog nicknames.

To let you know where the most popular racers at this site are right now in the VERY early standings (they just pulled out of Willow to start the race a little while ago) here’s a quick rundown: 1. Ray “The Rohn Rascal” Redington, Jr (Alternate nickname: The Son of the Iditarod – rimshot) *** 8. “Nordic” Nicolas Petit *** 9. Jeff “Yukon” King *** 10. “Arctic John” Baker (defending champ) *** 16. DeeDee “Juneau” Jonrowe *** 17. Lance “The Mad Musher” Mackey *** 20. “Rainy Pass” Ramey Smith *** 24. “North Paul” Gebhardt ***
