Lisa Frederic is a 30-something commercial fisherman living on almost uninhabitable Kodiak Island, Alaska when she watches a portion of the famous 1,000+ mile Iditarod dogsled race and finds herself hooked. Running With Champions is Frederic's memoir of watching that first race, volunteering at a way-station the next year, then going to work for an Iditarod race champion to help train dogs, and ultimately entering the race herself with a team of young dogs she has helped to train. Not particularly well written but told honestly, RWC is a quick, interesting read. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0882406167, Paperback)

An inspiring book about dedication, the love of dogs, and the physical endurance and mental toughness needed to run the Iditarod sled dog race -- from a female perspective. Lisa Frederic didn't set out to run the Iditarod. She just fell in love with the event and wanted to help. She ended up working as a volunteer for the Trail Committee at various checkpoints. Then she helped Iditarod champion Jeff King train his puppies. She had never mushed before. She was a rookie, but a rookie with heart and drive. She started out with short races and eventually raced the 1,049 miles from Anchorage to Nome in the Iditarod. Her story speaks to everyone who has ever followed a dream and found that the dream realized is even bigger than the imagined one.
