DULUTH, MN (NBC NEWS) — Excitement; it's a three syllable word that barely describes the mood at the start of the 30th annual John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon in Duluth, Minnesota.
After several snowless and warm winters, the weather finally co-operated for this year's race start in Duluth.
This year's race almost wasn't a go; in fact, it was almost cancelled.
However, a new board of directors made this race a reality in only three month's time rather than the usual twelve.
