- Listen as Anna talks to her dogs while taking her 24 in Takotna, featured on the Iditarod's primary news outlet, Alaska Dispatch News.
- Anna's dogs at the Ceremonial Start were featured in the International Business Times.
- Both of the twins are regularly featured in articles focusing on women in the Iditarod. Included this year are this piece in Cowboys & Indians, and Outside Live Bravely.
- As reported in the last mid-distance blog of the year, the twins had their own page in the March issue of SELF! magazine. And if there are any subscribers to GQ's online edition, keep an eye out for a feature on the twins (and send me a copy!).
- Kristy was quoted in the Wall Street Journal in a March 4th online article:
“Snow is snow, cold and wet,” said Iditarod musher Kristy Berington, 32 years old. “For 3 miles I don’t think anyone will notice a difference, Fairbanks snow shouldn’t taste any different to the dogs than Anchorage snow!”
Little did she or anyone know at the time that the Fairbanks snow wasn't being used.
- Watch for an upcoming blog about the dogs, which will feature a story and video from Alaska Public Media.
- Learn more about the twins' and other mushers' musical tastes in the Daily News, a Wahpeton, North Dakota regional publication.
- Read this article and listen to a 4 minute interview with Anna talking about running the Iditarod with her twin and best friend.
- The Iditarod Insider takes time to feature the twins, too, even when they're running in the middle of the pack. Visit Iditarod.com for two exclusives on the twins from during the 2016 race. Both are dated March 11 and catch the twins together before heading out of Cripple and again from Ruby. And check out the prior "special" blog entry (Getting Innovative) with a video featuring the twins.
Heck, even your Mad Blogger was captured at the restart in this photo that has been spotted in a few different places!
I guess my colleague was right... at least when it comes to the Iditarod, there really are Beringtons everywhere! And for as long as Seeing Double has been on the trail, that's always how it has been.
