Fall was quick in Willow, Alaska!
Winter is upon us! It feels like the end of December and it is only the last weekend in November. We have been on the sleds for more than a month now.
My wife left this little poem for me one morning on the bathroom mirror. I am so grateful to have a wonderful gal like that in my corner. Thanks sweetie.

Endurance, energy, excitement
Races to win, and races to be the best
