You'll hear the announcer mention "Susan's dogs." He's referring to the amazing Susan Butcher, who won the Iditarod 4 out 5 sequential years. Sadly, Susan died in 2006 after fighting leukemia, but her legacy lives on in the lineage of beautiful dogs she gently and compassionately raised and the role model that she has been to other women mushers. The driver of the team you'll see in this video is Kim Darst, 40, a helicopter pilot.

Just look at those dogs go!
