.CCF11152009_00001Hi my name is Brook I am 10 years old, and I love dog sledding. I started to learn about dog sledding when my mom and I started to go and watch the Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon at Ordean middle school. After watching, I really started to like the sport and I wanted to learn more about dog sledding.

Then I got my first Siberian Husky named Iciss then I got a wooden sled for her to practice pulling. We practice on a trail that goes around my whole house. I love the dogs and sledding so much that I wanted to learn more about the sport.

My mom and I wrote to Jen and Blake Freking and told them about how interested I was in learning more CCI11152009_00000about the dogs and sledding. This past weekend we were able to spend some time at their house, I was able to be pulled by my dog and one of theirs on a big scooter, it was so much fun. I also was able to go on a 20 mile training run with Jen in the morning. I loved spending time with all the dogs, all Jen and Blake’s dogs are nice to be around. CCF11152009_00001

I slept in the bunk house and that night the sky was filled with stars, and sometimes all at once the dogs would howl, it sounded like they were singing, it was amazing!

I plan to learn alot more this winter by helping at a dog sledding kennel near my house, and also spend more time at Jen and Blake’s. I am so excited to help handle and care for Blake’s team this year for the John Beargrease sled dog race here in Duluth, MN. I am looking forward to seeing the snow fall because we don’t have any yet. My dream is to some day race in the Beargrease and someday the Iditarod! I am only 10 years old right now but that gives me time to learn more.
