Junior musher inspirational video

I had to share this video by The FilmDailies about 15-year-old Krista Halnses and her sled dog racing career. It's longer than I usually post - five minutes, but just watching her with her dogs for a few seconds will mesmerize you.

Must be exhilarating, but I think I'll be staying inside where it's WARM.

Amazing dedication, especially considering she's only fifteen.

What a fun video, and those dogs are so gorgeous! 10,000 calories a day??? That must cost a fortune to feed all those dogs!

Wow that is very cool. I didn't know they had to eat so much. And she is so young! I hope she does well!

I thought of you today as I struggled to push my shopping cart in the parking lot at the grocery store after work. It's so dang cold but I know you wouldn't mind. I'm praying that it gets up to 30.

That's a lot of responsibility and dedication for someone her age. I think it's fantastic.

Thanks for posting that video. It was inspirational and exciting to watch--even more so that she is just 15.
