Ken Anderson is a three-time veteran of the Yukon Quest. During his rookie year in 2008 he came in second. He is currently running in his twelfth Iditarod. Ken has taken 4th place in two previous Iditarod races; in 2008 and 2010. In 2003 he took 5th place. A lot of folks will be watching him in this year’s race, especially other teams.
In the days leading up to the 2012 Iditarod, I spoke with Ken about the race, his family, and what some of his strategy will be in his quest to cross the finish line in first place.
