The ceremonial start is tomorrow, Saturday, March 2.   The Last Great Race starts on Sunday, March 3 from Willow, AK.  Alaskans in Anchorage will get a good look at the mushers and their dog teams as they head down 4th Avenue.  The dogs are anxious to get out on the trail and run, run, run.  It's an amazing race.........1,049 miles to Nome, roughly the distance from Boston to Miami.........but in the cold, dark, snow, mountains, frozen tundra.  I've been to 8 ceremonial starts.  It's so exciting to see the dogs, howling, jumping, getting their leads crossed over and over until they take off.  Then they have tongues a'waggin', tails a'waggin' and smiles on their faces!  Who will be the first team to make it to Nome this year???
