A wonderful article titled “Born to Run: Sprint sled-dog racing is fast and furry-ous” with Lilly Stewart, a sprint musher from Ipswich, Massachusetts was published this week in Sports Illustrated. Some of our mushing friends Ken Davis of Saginaw, MN and Amy Cooper of Holmen, WI are also mentioned in the article. Such great publicity for the sport. Great job Lilly keep up the good work!
