Into Koyuk – Mentally Tired

Pete and the Team are tired “Puppies” tonight! It was mentally and physically challenging running against the wind and across the ice to Koyuk. Pete in this interview, though, looks really great. You can just see through the tired and the wind that this young man that we follow each year is really in his element. THIS is long distance sled dog racing!!

Pete lost almost an hour over Ray Redington arriving into Koyuk at the checkpoint 171 miles from Nome at 7:02pm.

I’m expecting a 4 to 5 hour break before he readies the Team for the run west to White Mountain and a mandatory 8 hour break.

Weather tonight is windy but may subside as Team head west.

Area Weather for tonight:

Mostly cloudy, with a low around 0. North wind 5 to 10 mph.
A 40 percent chance of snow. Cloudy, with a high near 17. Northeast wind around 5 mph.
Tuesday Night
Snow likely, mainly before 10pm. Cloudy, with a low around 4. North wind around 5 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%. New snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.
