Good morning Ryno Kennel fans!  Before I get you all updated on Ryne, I just want to take a moment to give a big thank you to all our fans, supporters, sponsors and family!  Getting a musher to the start of the Iditarod is no easy feat, and we couldn’t have done it without you guys!

 

Ryne looks like she’s off to a good start in her second Iditarod.  For some background info for all you new fans to Ryno Kennel, Ryne is running a young team this year and expects to maintain a fairly conservative schedule.  That means lots of rest between runs to make sure that she gets the nine rookie 1,000 milers in her team of sixteen to the finish of their first long distance race in tip top shape. 

 

Ninety five miles in, and as far as I can tell from the computer, the dogs must be looking good!  Ryne’s kept an average of about 8 to 8.5 miles an hour and has been resting at each checkpoint she’s come to.  She dropped one dog before leaving Skwentna, not sure who it is yet, but we’ll keep you posted.  More updates to come tonight!
