March 12, 2015 Aaron Berner

Sled Dog Racing is a difficult and expensive sport. Four-time Iditarod Champion Lance Mackey knows the physical costs and difficulties all too well, as he has overcome throat cancer and nerve damage in his fingers to continue racing. Before the start of the 2015 Iditarod, Mackey discussed the financial costs of sled dog racing and the reasons he keeps coming back for more.
