So far, my limb is holding and Kristy is on track to finish mid-day today. I'm standing by my original prediction of 11am AK / 3pm EST. She dropped one dog in White Mountain, leaving her with 8 dogs in harness, and hit the trail out of WM at 1:04am AK time in 31st place. Give her 7 hours to get to Safety and another 3 hours to Nome. Gotta hedge myself and any of you readers without GPS, though, and promise I will post an update here when she's out of Safety.
Anna was out of Elim at 3:05am AK time today, in 40th place and still with 9 dogs. She took a little shorter rest here than I was expecting, putting her a couple of hours ahead of my projection. It's 123 race miles from Elim to Nome, though, so don't look for me to narrow things down just yet.
