Blair Braverman on What it Took to Complete the Iditarod

Women Who Travel - July 16, 2019 - 38:29

In this week's episode, we sit down with adventurer, dog sledder, and author Blair Braverman to learn about just what it took to complete the legendary Iditarod race—from the rigorous, year-long training program to the discipline required to cross Alaska with zero assistance. Plus, we chat about why she has chosen to be so open about her experiences as a musher through her writing and social media presence. As she tells us during the episode, she hopes her storytelling will empower more of us to find our own place within the outdoors.
