Video: The 1000-Mile Dream — How Far Would You Go For Your Passions?

How far are you willing to push yourself to achieve your goals and dreams? That’s a question that we all ask ourselves from time to time, but for dog sledder Liza Dietzen, it is something she must grapple with in a sport that can push you to your limits. Liza’s dream has always been to race in the Iditarod in Alaska, the Super Bowl of dog sleeping. But in order to get in, she has to qualify first, which she does by competing in the UP200 in Michigan. In this video, we get a glimpse of the passion that Liza has for this goal as she sets off to race in an event that has nearly claimed her life in the past. Something that isn’t easy to grapple with.
