Karen Ramstead has declared 2014  her last Iditarod. She has run several and this energetic soul has many irons in the fire she would like to attend to. But, didn’t Jeff King say something like that a couple of  years ago? Only to come back this year (2013) and take 3rd. I watched this competitive musher blow through the Koyuk Checkpoint and give Mitch Seavey and Ali Zirkle a run for the money.

Racing the Iditarod is hard work and expensive. Karen has been non-stop promoting her team of beautiful Siberian Huskies since the end of the 2013 Iditarod, where she participated as a race judge.

I worked with Karen in designing her Winter Chicks identity. She will be selling water bottles and caps with the Winter Chicks logo to help finance her 2014 Iditarod bid. Winter Chicks is her team of crazy women biking across Iowa (440 miles) in July when the temperatures and humidity are both 100. I hope she makes it. Yeah I have no idea what biking in Iowa has to do with going to Nome but Karen knows. I just make the impossible, possible—a Siberian Husky peddling a bike.

You can read more about Winter Chicks and Karen’s preparations for Iditarod 2014 on her North Wapiti Kennels Blog. Karen I wish you the best.

    Hope to see you in Iowa, Karen! I don’t ride RAGBRAI, but I’ll definitely be watching for you. I’m sure my huskies Ryn and Tunes will be woooo-ing you on as well!

  2. Hi Karen. Good luck this summer! And I’d like to buy some of your stuff for my clients. Be in touch when you can.
