Overview

Lisa Frederic didn't set out to run the Iditarod. A vacation to Nome, Alaska in 1997 to witness the end of the Iditarod Sled Dog Race® turned her life upside down. At the age of 40, when her life felt fairly settled, she suddenly found herself obsessed with a whole new world. The Iditarod and sled dogs had been vague concepts before the vacation, but dog mushing and a dream to run the Big One progressively became both a goal and a frightening commitment to her. Running with Champions; A Midlife Journey on the Iditarod Trail follows Lisa's quick progression from tourist to Iditarod volunteer to dog musher in The Last Great Race. Never described as graceful, Lisa learned to drive a team of huskies with sometimes funny, but more often terrifying experiences. The puppy team she trained went on to become champions - winning the 2006 Iditarod with Jeff King - but they were champions long before they won trophies. A tale of unconditional puppy love, this is also an inspiring story about setting goals, facing fears, and accepting challenges. Lisa's self-effacing account will speak to all those who have ever followed their heart and found that the dream realized is even bigger than the one they imagined.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Like many other mushers, Lisa Frederic approached the 1,000-mile Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race with great trepidation. Only after hard years of preparation did this born-and-bred Kentuckian enter "The Last Great Race." Running with Champions is her story. complete with blizzards and snowdrifts and a smooth landing.
