In 2007, dog musher Lance Mackey proved the impossible is possible winning two 1,000 mile races back to back. So, in 2008, he decided to do it again.
Now the only musher on the face of the planet to win back to back 1000 mile (plus) races is headed back to Hollywood for the second year in a row as the ESPY nominee in the category of “Best Outdoor Athlete.”
“Last year I was in awe… it is a very big deal… and some of the greatest names in sports are a part of it. It’s a humbling experience to just be nominated. But this time around I’m going to soak it all up and enjoy myself.” said Mackey.
