Northland musher prepares for Iditarod

Email

Just a month after running the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon, Northland musher Blake Freking is in Alaska, preparing for Saturday's start of the Iditarod Great Sled Race.

"The team looks great," Freking said recently from his home in Finland. "We changed our training quite a bit this year. We've been training a lot slower. Much more like an Iditarod-type pace. We've got a lot of miles on this year. These guys are in great shape."
