Excuse my spelling and grammar as I don't have much time to write.
Bruce made it to Elim this morning. He called from Koyuk yesterday afternoon and was in good spirits, though he ready for his race to be done. The dogs are working as a unit, still eating up every morsel and looking great. He is really happy with their performance and said Cindy is going to have one hell of a team for the Taiga Race in April.
He anticpates a mid-morning finish tomorrow - Friday and now not only does he want to come in top 30, he wants to beat his time from last year by at least a minute, as he is on the same schedule this year as he was last year.
No more sympathy from me. I told him to cut his rest times and get going!!! The dogs are fine and ready to get this race over with too. It is a beautiful day in Nome and the teams are starting to come in pretty regularly. Brody is having a super time with all his new friends at the church.
Looking forward to the next message I write because it will have his finish time!
Until then, Happy Trails and thanks for reading.
Melissa and Brody
