As you know, the Iron Dog snow machine race is underway. This is a grueling race over tough terrain in sub-zero weather. The course is nearly 2000 miles long, and incredibly challenging. It's the longest, toughest race of it's kind. Todd is a four time Iron Dog champion, and has been called one of the sport's savviest drivers.
Sarah Palin posted a short note on Facebook, as well as the photos shown.
It’s no secret I’m cheering for Team #11 in this year’s Iron Dog race! Todd and his racing partner Eric Quam are doing very well and helping lead the pack as they'll soon be near the 1000-mile half-way point in Nome. They’ve been breaking trail through three feet of new snow! All these athletes are rugged and tough. Please keep all the racers in your prayers.

Being a former racer myself, I can really appreciate the hard work and skill it takes to race this event. Not only physical toughness, but mental toughness as well. It takes a special athlete to win one of these events. To win four is incredible. Here's hoping Todd and Eric make it number five!
