IDITAROD 2016 SUPER SISSYHEAD (movie produced by Katherine Updegraff)

I have yet to come up with a profound statement in summary of this year's grand Iditarod adventure. The whole experience was so huge, so deep... it touched parts of my soul I had never experienced.   I felt a level of joy I never knew possible:  a summation of my years of time, emotion, energy and finances blossoming into a dream come true, as well as experiencing the overwhelming love and generosity of time, energy and financial support from my family, friends and race volunteers that made it possible and so much more enjoyable. It also resulted in a deepened bond with my dogs and an eye-opening new level of respect for my team who happily trotted along for 1000 miles on this crazy adventure.

A heart-felt thank you to ALL OF YOU who contributed to our success this past season!!!  

This movie, IDITAROD 2016 SUPER SISSYHEAD, was given to me by my sister this week.  It is simply perfect!  It celebrates the successful adventure, the dogs, our friends and family, the race volunteers and Alaska's beauty. I feel very grateful to have had the privilege to participate in THE LAST GREAT RACE (www.iditarod.com).   And, I am so thankful to my Sissyhead, one of our biggest fans, for compiling all these photos and creating this incredible movie.  Finally, I want to thank everyone who contributed photos to the movie.  Enjoy!!
