FAQs+the Back Story

What's up with this mushing thing?

This is the year I've decided to step things up!

See, for nearly 5 years, since the day I first set my big ole clunky Sorrel boots on the runners of a sled, I've been completely and utterly enchanted and transmuted by the thrill of mushing.

Some might say obsessed, and I'd be hard-pressed to argue with them!

I've dabbled as best I could for the past several years -- in between two knee surgeries, a major concussion, and one shoulder surgery -- and I finally put some miles on my sweet little sled last year.

And that was just enough to make me realize I want more. As in more dogs, more time on the sled, more adventure, and more of everything it takes to mush.

And much to my amazement, the universe offered me everything I could possible need to live my dream: a veteran musher who agreed to share with me 5 of her fantastic canine athletes and a veteran musher who is willing to mentor me and board the dogs and impart her hard-won knowledge. 

How could I possibly say anything but, "Bring it on, baby!"

And I'm telling the tale of this wild ride right here.

Oh, and did I mention that I'm planning to run my first race? Yep. 

So stay tuned!
