Angie finished 48th in the 2013 Iditarod Trail
Sled Dog Race.
Ketchkan, AK, USA
I grew up and have lived most of my life in
Ketchikan, Alaska. I was the first person from
Ketchikan to compete in and complete the Iditarod.
This will be my second running of Iditarod. I
completed the 2011 Iditarod in 13 days 1 hour 49
minutes and 24 seconds. I came in 43rd out of 63
mushers. I had the time of my life and I hope to
take what I learned on my inaugural run and improve
on my second run down the trail to Nome!! I have
been teaching school for 10 years. Some of the
community activities I am/have been involved in
are: Master's Swimming, assistant-coaching for the
Killer Whale Swim Team, sailing with the Yacht
Club, and co-president of Delta Kappa Gamma, a
teachers' society. My dream to run the Iditarod
began forming during 2001, the year I was a
dog-handler for a musher. In order to qualify to
run the 2011 Iditarod, I needed to complete 500
miles in sanctioned sled-dog races. I completed my
500 qualifying miles on April 3rd, 2009. I am very
excited to represent Ketchikan, my home and my
community, for the second time in the Iditarod.
Running For Breast Cancer Awareness This summer my
mom was diagnosed with triple negative breast
cancer. She underwent a double mastectomy in June
and she is going through chemotherapy for the next
four months concluding her treatment with 6 weeks
of radiation. This year I will be running for
breast cancer awareness, all monies that are not
used for my Iditarod 2013 run will be donated to a
breast cancer charity of my moms choice!
Angie was a Rookie in the 2011 Iditarod.
