The Ultra Hard Race

Check out this series of dispatches
coming from the Alaska Ultra, a very nasty race. The Ultra follows the same route as the Iditarod. Contestants do
not mush dogs, however. Nor do they eat them. They either ski, bike or run their way from Knick Lake (near Anchorage)
to Nome. 1,100 miles of serious attitude adjustment. Cyclist Elliot McAllister is filing dispatches on the cold
and hardship…emphasis on hard.
