Legally blind musher completes Iditarod

NOME, Alaska – Rachael Scdoris and her Iditarod sled dog team were navigating a treacherous cliff, crisscrossed with switchbacks, when her sled slammed into a thick spruce tree.

β€œIt was the worst run I've ever done,” said the legally blind musher, who finished the 1,100-mile race early Saturday in Nome.

Scdoris managed to recover from the fiasco in the Alaska Range and crossed the Iditarod finish line in the post-midnight chill of the old gold rush town, becoming the first legally blind musher to bring a sled dog team more than 1,100 miles from Anchorage to Nome.

Not a clue. I'm a mutt person, myself.
