Experience the 2012 Iditarod!

Want to experience the Iditarod?

A special invitation from Andre Jute, author of "Iditarod - a novel of The Greatest Race on Earth":  
You (yes, even if you haven't read any of my books) are cordially invited to come racing with me. 
The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race is 1246 miles long, running behind a team of a sled dogs a stone's throw from the Arctic Circle in Alaska. 
Alaska is that place where men are men — and women win the Iditarod, regularly. It is perhaps the most dangerous, and certainly the most exciting race in the world. It is definitely the only race in the world that can presume to call itself the successor to the Marathon of the Greeks. 
The dogs are the stars, but the men and women are all hunks. There are lots of surprises, starting with the average age of the winners (experience and a calm attitude counts for a great deal in such an ultra-endurance race), though a change of generations is due, perhaps this year.  
Going to the Iditarod was the most exciting thing I did last year. 
Join me at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Iditarod-a-novel-of-The-Greatest-Race-on-Earth/193084334057961 for a trip you won't soon forget. 
—Andre Jute

I have been totally obsessed with the iditarod since I read a book about it as a child. One day I will go but not as a competitor.
