It was 1964, and College freshman Dorothy Moore was ironing in her bedroom. She was home in Valdez during Spring Break. "It was Good Friday," says Moore. About 5:30pm, her mother called the family into the kitchen to eat. "We were sitting down to a spaghetti dinner when the house began shaking."

The final days of the 2014 Iditarod have been marked for the top finishers by howling winds, poor snow conditions, and a neck and neck race to the finish line in Nome. In the end, Dallas Seavey, 26, of Willow, Alaska, who, in 2012, became the youngest person to ever win the race, crossed the line first at 4:04 a.m. this morning on Tuesday, March 11, 2014. He completed the 1,000-mile course a mere two minutes ahead of second place finisher, Aliy Zirkle, 44, of Two Rivers, Alaska. In spite of the notably difficult trail conditions this year, Seavey still managed to finish the race in record time: eight days 13 hours 4 minutes and 19 seconds— more than five hours faster than the previous record held by 2011 race winner, John Baker.
