As someone who has done some (and by "some," I mean a very, very small amount) of dog sledding, wanted to give folks something to help pass the time during this dark off season. VT's own Paige Drobny is in 4th place as of 1:58 PM on March 12. Part of Paige's Iditarod Bio.
Paige Drobny ... graduated from Virginia Tech in 1997 with her B.S. in Biology and from UAF in 2008 with her M.S. in Fisheries Oceanography. Before moving to Fairbanks in 2005 for graduate school, she lived in Colorado and was a fisheries biologist. "I enjoy the outdoor lifestyle. I work as a fishery biologist and help my husband, Cody Strathe, build dogsleds for our company, DogPaddle Designs, during the summer.
Paige was the most improved musher last year having her first top 10 finish.
Let's all take a break from football recruiting, basketball season's finish, the ACC wresting tournament, the stock market, the virulence of various viruses ... and realize that we are now a dog sledding school.
