Rookie Anne Capistrant is a musher with bib #88 in the Iditarod. It turns out that, among many other things, she is a homescool mom! I will be adding her to my list of mushers to watch during this race.
It was so exciting to watch all the mushers leave the chute yesterday as they started this great adventure with it's history and tradition. Waking up this morning, I can log on and see where everyone is. The standings today can be completely different in a couple of days from now and will most likely be different at the end of the race (which will be in about 10 days to two weeks). It's hard to predict since nature is so unpredictable.
