This morning Iditarod champion Martin Buser addressed the breakfast meeting of the Council of State Governments at the Captain Cook Hotel in Anchorage. For those who read this blog from somewhere outside Alaska, the Iditarod is the 1,049 mile race dog sled mushing race from Anchorage to Nome. He told us, “The sled dogs are the true heroes of the trail. The humans just get all the attention because they can talk.” Buser has won the Idatarod four times.

Martin Buser gave an excellent insight into “Last Great Race” called the Iditarod, and related it to the organization, preparation, determination, and other qualities that make good legislators. I had never heard Buser speak before, and was quite impressed.

In the photo with Martin Buser the sled dog puppy isn't me, I’m the fat guy with the beard.
